Overcome an Eating Disorder

  • Establish stable, healthy eating habits
  • Manage difficult feelings without starving or stuffing them
  • Feel normal and calm around food
  • Start leading a healthier, happier life

No one expects to develop an eating disorder. So, it may come as a shock when your efforts to control eating and weight start feeling out of control. Eating disorders are about trying to feel better on the inside by controlling what's on the outside, namely our weight, shape and eating habits.

We often use food to cope with sadness, worries, anger or boredom. Or, restrict what we eat to distract ourselves from what's really bothering us. But such
efforts always fail in the end, leaving us feeling even worse, powerless, or hopeless.

Types of Eating Disorders

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified
  • Disordered Eating
