Types of Eating Disorder

There are a number of different eating disorders. People often don’t realise the nuanced differences between them. Three of the most common eating disorders are:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
    • Trying to control your weight by not eating enough food, exercising too much, or doing both
  • Binge eating disorder (BED)
    • Eating large portions of food until you feel uncomfortably full
  • Bulimia
    • losing control over how much you eat and then taking drastic action to not put on weight

What is an eating disorder?

An eating disorder is a mental health condition where an individual uses the control of food to cope with feelings and other situations. Unhealthy eating behaviours may take on a variety of different forms. Furthermore, they can be incredibly serious conditions affecting physical, psychological and social function, and most of them develop in adolescence and young adulthood.
