Disordered Eating

Disordered Eating

Often times when we hear the term “disordered eating” we assume it’s just another term for an eating disorder, however, these terms are not interchangeable. When someone is suffering from an eating disorder, food intake and weight issues will consume that individuals’ thoughts and actions, taking over the mind in a sense, and making it absolutely impossible for that individual to focus on anything else, in all actuality it is a mental illness. Eating disorders can repeatedly cause multiple, serious physical problems and in severe cases can become life-threatening.

However, disordered eating is something that is much more common and its symptoms are a lot milder and occur less frequently than those within an eating disorder. Disordered eating is defined as: “an unhealthy relationship with food; whereas an eating disorder is considered a psychiatric illness that is much more complex”(Rogers 2013). Changes in eating patterns due to temporary stressors such as an athletic event or even an illness would be classified as disordered eating.

Indications of Disordered Eating include:

  • Restrictive Dieting
  • Skipping Meals
  • Binging/ Purging
  • Diet Pill Abuse
  • Laxative Abuse

These symptoms are common red flags and demonstrate an unhealthy relationship that the individual has developed with food and his/her eating habits.

A large concern for those with disordered eating is that it can lead to an eating disorder. If you or a loved one may be experiencing disordered eating or unhealthy eating habits please contact Renew for help.
