Eating Disorders (ED) come in many packages...




What you may expect an eating disorder to look like may not always be the case. Just because you don't purge, doesn't mean that you aren't a binge eater.

Often, those with eating disorders go unnoticed. Take for instance the cheerleader whom everyone adores for her athleticism, or the track runner, or even people in places of authority. 

There is not just one face to the eating disorder. 

It can be hiding in plain sight! 

It could even be hiding in 

You!

Years can roll on... A person may never discover that their eating habits are distorted. Denial is often a useful tool when it’s used to hide the disease.

Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Night eating, Obesity, or even Binge eating can be a mystery to the one who suffers with it. Until the problem can be discovered and identified; you may never truly know the motivations behind your choices.

Take the time to ask yourself the 

important 

questions. 

Don't be afraid to dig deep. 

If you suspect you may have an eating disorder, the National Institute of Mental Health NIMH has a load of information regarding eating disorders. If you're unsure if an eating disorder applies to you, there's a self-test that you can take.

Whatever your suspicions may be; don't be afraid to ask yourself the tough questions & remember the first life-line to YOU, is... YOU!
