Eating Disorder is a general term used to describe individuals who exhibit extreme unhealthy eating patterns.
Unhealthy eating patterns can manifest in both inadequate food intake and/or excessive food intake.
The most well-known eating disorders include Anorexia, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating.
Any Eating Disorder has significant implications to a person’s mental and physical well-being. If left untreated, the problem can also be life threatening given the stress it places on their bodies both mentally and physically.
In general women are more susceptible to eating disorders, but the condition is also prevalent in males.
