What is Disordered Eating?
More common but lesser known challenge is “Disordered Eating”. Disordered eating affects 3 in 4 American women ages 25 to 45, according to a survey of 16,000 sponsored by SELF-magazine in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Disordered eaters may engage in excessive dieting, eating when not hungry, eating in secret, skipping meals, and primarily eating fattening, over-processed, “comfort” or convenience foods. This can result in low energy, trouble concentrating, anxiety, depression, and/or being moderately overweight or underweight. Although disordered eating is considered less serious than eating disorders or obesity, it can lead to both.
It all boils down to a state of being that we are trying to achieve through food and/or lack of it.
