Eating disorders occur when there are serious disturbances in an individual’s eating behaviour and their weight regulation. Individuals suffer from psychological, physical, and social consequences.
There are three different types of eating disorders including: anorexia, bulimia, and binge-eating. Anorexia: Usually an emotional disorder where individuals refuse to eat in order to lose weight. Bulimia: Usually and emotional disorder where an individual’s desire to lose weight causes a depressive state where they will self-induce vomiting, purging or fasting. Binge Eating: Also known as compulsive eating disorder. This is where individuals display uncontrollable eating habits.
