About Eating Disorders

An eating disorder can negatively affect one's physical and mental health. Anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are the most common eating disorders. Anorexia nervosa is characterized by low body weight and body image distortion. Individuals with anorexia are known to take extreme measure to control their body weight. In most cases, it is caused by a distorted body image and strong fear of weight gain. Bulimia nervosa consists of a pattern of binge eating followed by guilt and over compensatory behavior such as crash dieting, over exercising, and purging to compensate for the excessive calorie intake.
