Understanding Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious conditions that involve extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. They are not about food alone but are often a way to cope with deeper emotional problems.

Three Major Eating Disorder Types

  1. Anorexia Nervosa
    • Characterized by self-imposed starvation and excessive weight loss.
    • Symptoms include extreme fear of weight gain, obsession with body image, swollen joints, bad breath, unstable mood, seizures, lack of energy, compulsive exercising, and dramatic weight loss.
  2. Bulimia
    • Involves episodes of eating large quantities of food followed by purging through vomiting or excessive exercise.
    • Symptoms include overeating, depression, feelings of guilt, chronic gastric reflux, dental issues, infertility, and more.
  3. Binge Eating Disorder (BED)
    • Defined by repeated episodes of eating large amounts of food in a short period.
    • Symptoms include overeating at least twice per week for several months, guilt associated with overeating, sustained weight gain, anxiety, eating alone, hiding food, and using food to relieve stress or depression.
