How are you feeling today?

Let's talk about Eating Disorders!


At least one person you have encountered in your life has had an eating disorder. Whether that person is your friend, your teacher, classmate, loved one, yourself, et cetera. Eating disorder isn't just for "models" but your normal average person as well. It starts up from a young upbringing, whether they were getting bullied, told to lose weight, or whatever the case may be. You have to understand that there is help for these things and you are not alone.


“I intend to accept my body today love my body tomorrow and appreciate my body always.”


There are five different types of eating disorders I want to discuss with you all today. They are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating, pica, rumination disorder.


According to Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research:


Anorexia nervosa

  • an eating disorder characterized by abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight, and a distorted perception of weight.

Bulimia nervosa

  • eating large amounts of food with a loss of control over the eating — and then purge, trying to get rid of the extra calories in an unhealthy way.

Binge eating

  • eating disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food and feel unable to stop eating.

Pica

  • is persistently eating nonfood items, such as soap, cloth, talcum powder or dirt, over a period of at least a month. Eating these nonfood items can result in medical complications such as poisoning, intestinal problems or infections.

Rumination disorder

  • repeatedly and persistently regurgitating food after eating, but it's not due to a medical condition or another eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia or binge-eating disorder.

I hope you have a safe and wonderful weekend! I will back on Monday with your Motivational Monday!
