E ating Disorders Eating disorders affect millions of teens and young women worldwide and are more common in cultures that focus on weight loss and body image. Intense focus on thinness can lead to negative body image and unhealthy eating behaviors in young women. Sometimes, these unhealthy eating behaviors lead to eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder or eating disorders not otherwise specified (ED-NOS). If you are reading this guide, perhaps you are worried about your health or the health of someone you know. This guide was created to help young women understand eating disorders, and realize that treatment and recovery are possible. What are eating disorders? There are four types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and ED-NOS (Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified). Young women with these disorders often have a negative and distorted body image, and intense emotions and behaviors surrounding food. The phrase "body image" means the thoughts and feelings people have about their physical appearance. Young women with eating disorders may start to eat less because they are afraid of gaining weight. Sometimes they binge (overeat, consuming very large quantities of food) and sometimes purge (by making themselves vomit, over-exercising, or using laxatives). Eating disorders affect a person's physical and emotional health. They are very dangerous illnesses and can be fatal if they are not treated.

Eating Disorders
(Including Anorexia and Bulimia)
By John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
05 Oct 2008 Table of Contents: Eating disorders are one of the unspoken secrets that affect many families. Millions of Americans are afflicted with this disorder every year, and most of them up to 90 percent are adolescent and young women. Rarely talked about, an eating disorder can affect up to 5 percent of the population of teenage girls. Why are adolescent and young women so susceptible to getting an eating disorder? According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it is because during this period of time, women are more likely to diet to try and keep a slim figure and/or try stringent dieting. Certain sports (such as gymnastics) and careers (such as modeling) are especially prone to reinforcing the need to keep a fit figure, even if it means purging food or not eating at all. There are three main types of eating disorders: Anorexia (also known as anorexia nervosa) is the name for simply starving yourself because you are convinced you are overweight. If you are at least 15 percent under your normal body weight and you are losing weight through not eating, you may be suffering from this disorder.

At Eating Disorders, you will find useful articles and resources concerning eating disorders. We will discuss the different types of eating disorders and provide their description. You will find information on the causes, the diagnosis process and the different types of treatment available. You will also learn who can be affected, details on the recovery process and where to find help.
Many families are affected by this problem. It doesn't matter who you are or where you came from, everyone is at risk. Everyone needs to get more educated about the dangers and the signs, so hopefully, those numbers of people struggling with it can begin to shrink, instead of growing.
There are many different reasons why it can happen to an individual. It is not only a physical problem but it is also an emotional problem, as well as other mental issues that have occurred throughout a persons life. The most important thing to understand is that eating disorders can totally and utterly destroy someone's life, as well as seriously affect everyone who loves and cares about them. Not only can it put the victim's health at risk but the damages definitely go much further than that. Eating disorders affect everyone around the patient.
Recovery is possible but something must be done about it as early as possible. The victim will need counseling, therapy, the constant love and support of family and friends, as well as strength and determination. Eating disorders are not a sign of weakness, stupidity or incompetency. They are a psychological problem that can be treated.

8. Teenagers And Eating Disorders
Gives information about insecurities and possible causes, as well as tips on how to avoid the problem.
Teenagers are under a lot of pressure to succeed and fit in. Many spend a lot of time worrying about what others think and they desperately try to conform to society's unattainable "ideal" body image. They are lead to believe that if they are thin, they will be accepted. Since many teenagers are constantly buying teen or fashion magazines, the images of emaciated models appearing in those magazines only reinforces their belief that in order to be happy, successful and accepted, they must be thin. Television shows like Beverly Hills 90210 also leads them to believe that they must be thin. They watch these shows all the time and many will do anything to try and look like the actresses on these shows. Many teenagers need a role model and someone to look up to. Unfortunately, too many of them chose fashion models or actresses as their role models, they paste pictures of them all over their rooms, and some will resort to dangerous methods of weight control to try and look like their idols. Schools should also take an active role in preventing eating disorders by educating the students on the dangers of eating disorders and helping to teach them that in order to succeed in life, their weight does not matter. You do not have to be thin, in order to succeed in the career of your choice. Teachers and school counselors should also be made aware of the signs to look for. If eating disorders are caught early, and the person is willing to accept the help that is available to them, the chances of recovery are greater.

What is Anorexia?
Anorexia Nervosa is a condition, usually affecting females but also males as well, in which the sufferer has a morbid fear of gaining weight and fat and calories. It is an obsession with being slim. However, it is much more than simply a diet to avoid consuming food and will attempt to eat as little as possible. In the past, anorexia was largely seen as a physical condition, rather than as a psychological one. Nowadays, it is widely recognized as the latter. An estimated 1% of female colleges students are anorexic. Fortunately, there is now more help than ever available. Sufferers are also prone to bulimic tendencies, such as laxative and diuretics abuse; any attempt to purge the body of food. To Learn More About Anorexia Click Here What is Binge-Eating?

One study showed that foster girls are more likely to develope bulimia nervosa. Some also think that peer pressure and idealized body-types seen in the media are also a significant factor. While proper treatment can be highly effective for many of the specific types of eating disorder, the consequences of eating disorders can be severe, including death (whether from direct medical effects of disturbed eating habits or from comorbid conditions such as suicidal thinking).

    A detailed booklet that describes the different types of eating disorders, symptoms, and treatments.
    What Are Eating Disorders?
    An eating disorder is marked by extremes. It is present 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. Eating disorders are very complex, and despite scientific research to understand them, the biological, behavioral and social underpinnings of these illnesses remain elusive. The two main types of eating disorders are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. A third category is "eating disorders not otherwise specified (EDNOS)," which includes several variations of eating disorders. Most of these disorders are similar to anorexia or bulimia but with slightly different characteristics. Binge-eating disorder, which has received increasing research and media attention in recent years, is one type of EDNOS.
