Eating Disorders

Eating disorders (such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder) include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. Eating disorders are serious emotional and physical problems that can have life-threatening consequences for females and males. All eating disorders require professional help.

What's Going On With Me?

  • Do you constantly calculate numbers of fat grams and
  • Do you weigh yourself often and find yourself obsessed with the number on the scale?
  • Do you exercise to burn off calories and not for health and enjoyment?
  • Do you ever feel out of control when you are eating?
  • Do your eating patterns include extreme dieting, preferences for certain foods, withdrawn or ritualized behavior at mealtime or secretive bingeing?
  • Has weight loss, dieting, and/or control of food become one of your major concerns?
  • Do you feel ashamed, disgusted or guilty after eating?
  • Do you constantly worry about the weight, shape or size
    of your body?
  • Do you feel like your identity and value is based on how you look or how much you weigh?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may have disordered eating.  The things you're doing to be thin can quickly spin out of control and become a serious, life-threatening eating disorder.

When treating individuals suffering from eating disorders, we provide nutrition therapy and work as part of a collaborative team including a physician, therapist, family, and significant others.
