ARE YOU SUFFERING WITH AN EATING DISORDER?
- Restrict food?
- Binge on food?
- Purge (vomit) after eating?
- Over exercise to burn calories?
- Obsess over weight?
- Obsess about food?
All of the above are signs of eating disorders. If you have an eating disorder, I know you are suffering with intense emotions and that your quality of life is being severely affected. I also know you never really enjoy food or eating and you feel awful about yourself. Food and eating are constant sources of stress and anxiety.
An eating disorder will cause you to obsess about weight, body shape and what you eat. It can negatively impact your whole life in so many ways.
