It’s estimated that 1 in 20 people will be personally effected by an Eating Disorder at some point in their lives. Eating Disorders come in a variety of forms, the most common: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder (BED). Common characteristics of Eating Disorders include: an obsession with weight loss and exercise, denying food to the point of starvation, fear of eating in public, eating a large amount of food in a short period of time followed by vomiting or misusing laxatives, and overeating or binge eating until uncomfortably full.
