What is an Eating Disorder:

Signs & Symptoms, and Eating Disorder Treatment

An Eating Disorder (ED) is a serious mental and physical condition characterized by irregular eating habits and detrimental attitudes toward food, body image, and weight. It often involves extreme fixations over dieting, weight loss, or excessive exercise, leading to harmful effects. Eating disorders take many forms such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).

It is important to note that eating disorders choose no one and can affect individuals of all genders, ages, backgrounds, and cultures. They are complex mental health conditions that often stem from a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.
