You may have an eating disorder if your relationship with food, weight, exercise or body image is affecting your quality of life.

Going through cycles of calorie restriction and dieting followed by binging

An eating disorder is a diagnosed illness. It has strict diagnostic criteria that describe a person’s eating behaviors, weight, and mental and physical wellbeing. But these criteria don’t give the full picture.

For every person who meets the diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder, there are at least two who fall short of it, even though symptoms gravely affect their lives.

The real question to ask yourself isn't whether you have an eating disorder, but whether you're unhappy with your relationship with food. That's enough to want to change, and we're here to help.
