Signs you may be dealing with eating concerns

Eating concerns or disorders can be characterized by many different symptoms and could even be a combination of them. This could look like an uncontrollable urge to overeat or undereat, excessive diets, extreme distress over body weight, size, or shape. Three of the most common disorders associated with eating concerns are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and bing-eating disorder.

Anorexia nervosa is accompanied with a feeling of obsession with weight, often feeling overweight even when they are not. Typically there is an intense fear of gaining weight that displays itself in extreme diets, intense exercise, and other excessive measures to lose weight.

Bulimia nervosa, like anorexia is accompanied by a fear of gaining weight, but carries occasions of excessive eating followed by something to compensate for the overeating (i.e. vomiting, excessive fasting or exercise, and the use of laxatives or diuretics.)

Binge-eating disorder is characterized by someone having times of excessive eating, but unlike bulimia nervosa is not followed by any method of purging.

What causes eating concerns and how can it affect your life?

Studies have found that eating concerns can be caused by a myriad of factors such as psychological problems, trauma, genes, social pressures, and behavioral issues. Eating concerns can affect you emotionally, physically and relationally.

Emotional distress typically is a precursor to eating concerns, but also amplifies as you continue to deal with these concerns. This includes intense feelings of insecurity, shame, inadequacy and even anxiety and depression. Physically eating concerns wreak havoc on your digestive system, but can also cause issues related to reproductive health, dehydration, bone density, heart concerns, brain damage, and even organ failure. Often people who struggle with eating concerns tend to carry shame that causes them to hide their struggle from friends and family, creating distance and conflict in these relationships.
