Warning Signs of Eating Disorders

Over 30 million Americans have some type of eating disorder and while each problem is unique, eating disorders do have warning signals.

Here are some signs that might indicate a problem in you or someone you love:

- Fear of being unable to stop eating once you start
- Abusing drug or alcohol before “binge eating”
- Intentional vomiting after meals
- Constant low-calorie or crash dieting
- Compulsive exercise with strict “exercise rules”
- Using body weight and being thin to measure self-worth
- Thinking or talking constantly about food
- Refusing to discuss food at all
- Using food to hide anger, loneliness, or feelings of rejection

If you are concerned about your eating behaviors or attitudes, or even a friend or family members, consider professional help.
