Eating disorders are so common in America that 1 or 2 out of every 100 students will struggle with one. These stats are pretty staggering especially if you are a parent of a teen in today’s world. Learning the different types of Eating disorders can help you to better recognize the symptoms.

The most common types of eating disorder are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa (usually called simply “anorexia” and “bulimia”) Here are the symptoms of both.

Anorexia

  • becomes very thin, frail, or emaciated
  • obsessed with eating, food, and weight control
  • weighs herself or himself repeatedly
  • counts or portions food carefully
  • only eats certain foods, avoiding foods like dairy, meat, wheat, etc. (of course, lots of people who are allergic to a particular food or are vegetarians avoid certain foods)
  • exercises excessively
  • feels fat
  • withdraws from social activities, especially meals and celebrations involving food
  • may be depressed, lethargic (lacking in energy), and feel cold a lot

Bulimia

  • fears weight gain
  • intensely unhappy with body size, shape, and weight
  • makes excuses to go to the bathroom immediately after meals
  • may only eat diet or low-fat foods (except during binges)
  • regularly buys laxatives, diuretics, or enemas
  • spends most of his or her time working out or trying to work off calories
  • withdraws from social activities, especially meals and celebrations involving food

Also common, Binge eating disorder is a newly recognized condition that probably affects millions of Americans. People with binge eating disorder frequently eat large amounts of food while feeling a loss of control over their eating. However a person does not usually purge afterwords.

Fortunately, people with eating disorders can get well and gradually learn to eat normally again. Eating disorders involve both the mind and body and can be difficult to overcome but with the right help and treatment getting back on the track towards a healthy lifestyle can in fact be achieved.
