Eating Disorders

Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating

Three Main Types

There are three main types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating. There is a misconception that eating disorders only occur in young females. This is so untrue, in fact, about half of the binge eating disorders occur in males. These disorders affect people physically and emotionally and they are potentially life threatening, but there is treatment. All three disorders can be treated with counseling or psychotherapy but the exact treatment procedures are different for every person. Consult a doctor right away if you or someone you know suffers from an eating disorder. Remember, people with these disorders will almost always deny that they have one. The first step is to accept it, then change it.
