Causes of Eating Disorders
The cause are more psychological than physical.
1.) Low self-esteem: a need for control, striving for perfection, and troubled relationships are common characteristics among sufferers of eating disorders.
2.) Media: The media and social expectations can influence one’s sense of self, particularly his or her appearance
3.) Abuse: Research has shown that many people with eating disorders have a history of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
Anorexia is a lack or loss of appetite for food
