Eating Disorders

“Eating disorders describe a range of problems associated with eating, food and body image. Unfortunately, in our society it is common for individuals to feel unhappy about their bodies and to be dieting or worrying about food. When these problems are extreme or interfere with an individual’s normal activities and quality of life, these concerns are considered to be psychological disorders.”

Most of the research indicates that there is a complex set of factors that include cultural, social, family, personality, psychological, physical and genetic aspects of each individual that can interact in a way that an eating disorder may develop. This can be insidious in nature whereby it can emerge over a period of time—sometimes outside your awareness—until you notice its interference with normal daily activities.
