What Are Eating Disorders?

There is a common misconception that eating disorders only affect young women and teenagers. However, eating disorders can affect people of all backgrounds. People with eating disorders will usually display disordered actions and thoughts to cope with their emotions and other things in their lives that are beyond their control. This can manifest in the person having anxiety regarding their  weight or body shape and controlling their food intake - whether that be overeating or undereating. As eating disorders can have a serious impact on a person’s physical and mental health, it is crucial to get seen by a specialist dietitian at the earliest opportunity.

Symptoms And Things To Watch Out For

When it comes to eating disorders, early detection is important. After all, this improves the chance of recovery. However, we understand that it is not always easy to know the warning signs of an eating disorder. Whether you or your loved one are battling with disordered eating, here are the common signs and symptoms to look out for:

  • Anorexia: People with anorexia will try to keep their body weight as low as possible. Common signs of anorexia include an obsession with food, a distorted body image, exercising excessively, refusing to eat and engaging in food rituals.
  • Bulimia: People with bulimia will go through episodes of bingeing and purging. Common symptoms and signs include fear of putting on weight, behaving secretly, bloating, stomach pain, a sore throat from being sick and frequently going to the bathroom after eating.
  • Binge eating: People who binge eat consume large amounts of food in a short period of time without purging afterwards. The warning signs of binge eating disorder include eating a lot of food in a short period, trying to hide how much you are eating, hoarding food supplies and weight gain.
  • Orthorexia: This is an unhealthy obsession with eating food that is considered to be pure and healthy. The most common symptom is feelings of guilt after consuming food that is deemed to be unhealthy.
  • Bigorexia: This is a body dysmorphic disorder that is characterised by feelings of not being muscular enough or being too small. The warning signs include taking an excessive amount of supplements to increase muscle mass or overexertion at the gym.

No matter what eating disorder you are struggling with, our experts have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to help you on the road to recovery.
