Help with Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are abnormal eating habits that can threaten your health or even your life. They include:
- Anorexia nervosa: Individuals believe they’re fat even when they’re dangerously thin and restrict their eating to the point of starvation.
- Bulimia nervosa: Individuals eat excessive amounts of food, then purge by making themselves vomit or using laxatives.
- Binge eating: Individuals have out-of-control eating patterns, but don’t purge.
