Your Journey to a Healthier Relationship with Food and Self

Body image is the mental representation that one creates in their mind, and it may or may not align with how others perceive an individual’s appearance. This distorted self-image affects people worldwide, irrespective of their ethnicity, culture, gender, or age. According to ANAD (National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders), approximately 30 million Americans grapple with some form of eating disorder. Tragically, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate among all mental illnesses, with someone succumbing to them every 62 minutes.

Types of Eating Disorders

Eating disorders encompass a wide spectrum, and the statistics mentioned above only scratch the surface. Here are a few examples of eating disorders:

Anorexia Nervosa: Individuals intentionally restrict their calorie intake below what is necessary for their weight, age, gender, development, and physical health.

  • Bulimia Nervosa: People consume excessive amounts of food and then engage in purging behaviors, such as self-induced vomiting, to prevent weight gain.
  • Binge Eating Disorder (BED): This disorder involves consuming large amounts of food within short periods of time.
  • Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID): Often seen in children, this disorder goes beyond normal pickiness and can lead to malnourishment due to extreme food restrictions.
  • Diabulimia: Individuals with Type 1 diabetes deliberately underuse insulin to control their weight.

Treatment Methods

Effective treatment for eating disorders typically requires a multidisciplinary approach, involving a diverse team of experts. Professional caregivers may include:

  • Psychologist
  • Psychiatrist
  • Social worker
  • Nutritionist
  • Primary care physician

Given the profound impact of eating disorders on an individual’s physical health, psychological therapy alone may not suffice. Family therapy and support groups can also play pivotal roles in the recovery process. For minors, Family-Based Treatment, as recommended by NEDA, is often employed.
In severe cases, inpatient care may become necessary, involving hospitalization or residential treatment to provide intensive support and care for individuals battling eating disorders.
