DIET…What does it really mean?

  • Probably one of the most hated words in the English language

  • Diet- the usual food and drink of a person or animal.


Yo yo dieting l.jpg
“Yo-Yo” Dieting

  • Individuals go on and off these diets, so their weight fluctuates

  • This cycle of losing, regaining, losing, and regaining weight is known as weight cycling.

Risky Weight-Loss Strategies

  • Diet Pills

    • Some pills claim to “burn,” “block,” or “flush,” fat from the system.

    • There are NO low-risk pills that do this

    • May help control appetite, but can have serious side effects such as drowsiness, anxiety.


Fad diets l.jpg
Fad Diets

  • “Approaches to weight control that are popular for a short time, but rarely have any lasting effect.”

Risks of fad diets l.jpg
Risks of Fad Diets

  • Some fad diets cost a lot of money

  • Most are even more costly to the individual’s health

make lifestyle changes to achieve

permanent weight loss

    boyfriend, girl friend, etc.


Did you know29 l.jpg
Did you know?

  • Bingeing 2 times or more a week for 6 months classifies a person as bulimic, although once a week is usually enough.

How can you help l.jpg
How can you help?

  • If you have a friend with an eating disorder, follow these tips:

    • Listen

    • Use active listening skills and encourage your friend to share feelings honestly

    • Help your friend find an adult or professional help.


Where to get help l.jpg
Where to get help…

  • It is helpful to go to an adult, whether it’s the school nurse, a counselor, your parents, or your friends parents

  • However, if you have no idea where to go or what to do you can call these national hotlines for eating disorders:


Hotline numbers l.jpg
Hotline Numbers

  • National Eating Disorders Association:

    • 1-800-931-2237

    • National Eating Disorders Association

  • National Eating Disorder Referral and Information Center:

    • 858-481-1515


  • Remember l.jpg
    Remember!

    • You cannot force someone to change, but anorexia and bulimia are very serious disorders. If someone confides in you, you need to tell an adult so they can get help.

    • THEY CAN DIE FROM THIS!


    Remember34 l.jpg
    Remember!

    • Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa are not diseases; they are symptoms of other problems

    • This makes them psychological disorders

    • People with these disorders need medical and professional help—DO NOT try and counsel a friend on your own!
