what are eating disorders
What are eating disorders?
  • An eating disorder is when a person experiences severe disturbances in eating behavior, such as extreme reduction of food intake or extreme overeating, or feelings of extreme distress or concern about body weight or shape.
  • A person with an eating disorder may have started out just eating smaller or larger amounts of food than usual, but at some point, the urge to eat less or more spirals out of control.

Main Types
  • The two main types of popular eating disorders are anorexia and bulimia.
  • Binge-eating is also another disorder that is being looked at much more recently.
anorexia nervosa
Anorexia Nervosa
  • Anorexia is characterized by emaciation, a relentless pursuit of thinness and unwillingness to maintain a normal or healthy weight, a distortion of body image and intense fear of gaining weight, a lack of menstruation among girls and women, and extremely disturbed eating behavior.
  • Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight, even when they are starved or are clearly malnourished.

bulimia nervosa
Bulimia Nervosa
  • Bulimia is characterized by recurrent and frequent episodes of eating unusually large amounts of food and feeling a lack of control over the eating.
  • Unlike anorexia, people with bulimia can fall within the normal range for their age and weight. But like people with anorexia, they often fear gaining weight, want desperately to lose weight, and are intensely unhappy with their body size and shape.

  • swollen glands in the neck and below the jaw
  • worn tooth enamel and increasingly sensitive and decaying teeth as a result of exposure to stomach acids

  • Some are required to stay under a certain weight to keep their career.
  • However, some stores/modeling companies are trying to change how they portray their companies image.
