I'm looking for an experience to help a small group of college students understand what it's like to have an eating disorder.

Long story short, as part of a larger project about empathy and nutrition, I am trying to create an immersive, eye-opening experience to help a small group of college students understand what it's like to live with an eating disorder from a physical, mental, and emotional perspective. This should be something that really challenges their existing opinions, and makes them feel a bit uncomfortable.
We were originally going to partner with a local organization who has some programming that does this for families of individuals with eating disorders, but that arrangement fell through. So now we are trying to brainstorm for new ideas, and we're at a loss. Hive mind, can you help?
