The Ultimate Eating Disorder Guide Ever!
2
  • An eating disorder is mainly when you have an
    unhealthy attitude to food, which can take over
    your life and make you ill. So, it can involve
    eating too much or too little, or becoming
    obsessed with your weight and body shape.

Types Of Eating Disorders
4
  • The most common eating disorders are
  • anorexia nervosa when you always try to keep
    your weight as low as possible by not eating
    enough food, exercising too much, or both
  • bulimia when you mainly lose control over
    eating a lot of food in a very short amount of
    time (binging) and are then deliberately sick,
    use laxatives, restrict what bad you eat, or do
    too much exercise to try to stop yourself gaining
    weight
  • binge eating disorder (BED) when you mainly
    lose control over eating, eat large portions of
    food all at once until you feel uncomfortably
    full, and are then often upset or guilty
  • other specified feeding or eating disorder
    (OSFED) mainly when your symptoms do not
    exactly match those of anorexia symptoms, bulimia
    or compulsive overeating disorder, but it does
    not mean it's a less serious illness

Getting Help For An Eating Disorder
  • If you really think you may have an eating
    disorder, even if you're not sure, see a GP as
    soon as you can. They'll ask you questions about
    your eating habits and how you're feeling, and
    will check your overall health and weight. If
    they think you may have an eating disorder, they
    should refer you to an eating disorder doctors or
    team of specialists.

6
Treatment For Eating Disorders
  • You can easily recover from an eating disorder,
    but it may take time and recovery will be
    different for everyone. After being referred to
    an eating disorder clinic or team of specialists,
    they'll be responsible for your care.
  • They should mainly talk to you about any other
    support you might need, such as for other mental
    or physical health conditions you have, and
    include this in your treatment plan.

  • Treatment will always be different depending on
    the type of eating disorder you have, but will
    usually involve some kind of talking therapy.
  • You may also need regular health checks if youre
    eating disorder is having an impact on your
    physical health.
  • It may also involve working through a guided
    self-help eating disorder programs if you have
    bulimia or binge eating disorder.

What Causes Eating Disorders?
  • Mainly we do not know exactly what causes eating
    disorders. You may also be more likely to get an
    eating disorder if
  • you or a member of your family has mainly a
    history of eating disorders, depression, or
    alcohol or drug addiction
  • you have always been criticised for your eating
    habits, body shape or weight
  • you have always anxiety, low self-esteem, an
    obsessive personality or are a perfectionist
  • you have been sexually abused
