Would you like to be healthy but not obsessed with diets and working out?
If you feel you spend much of your life feeling that you hate the way you look and worrying about every nuance of your food and your exercise routine, you may have an eating disorder. And eating disorders are often about a lot more than just food. They can be a way for people to cope with challenges and problems that are out of their control.
By tightly regulating every aspect of your eating and exercise, you may feel you have regained a sense of control. But in reality, you may have created a new problem, one that can impact on your self-worth, your identity and your self-esteem.
Some of the disorders that can come out of an exaggerated search for control combined with a poor sense of self include anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa , both very dangerous illnesses. Binge eating disorder is more common and can also have a serious impact on your life.
