Learn How to Change Your Eating Behaviors
An eating disorder is a serious condition that can negatively impact your health, your ability to function in life, and your emotions. The most common eating disorders are bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorders, and anorexia nervosa. In most cases, an eating disorder involves fixating on body shape, weight, and food. Fixating on these areas can not only negatively impact your mental health, but it can also cause harm to the heart, digestive system, bones, and more. At Innerspace Counseling in New Jersey, we offer intensive therapy programs to help combat eating disorders for those that are medically stable, as a co-occurring condition. Our staff is happy to consult if you are unsure about your fit for our programs. If you would like to learn more, continue reading below or give us a call.
For the loved ones of someone who is living with an eating disorder, it can be difficult to recognize the signs until the disorder starts threatening their health. If you suspect your loved one has an eating disorder, you can look for signs of:
- Excessive exercise
- Skipping meals or making excuses for not eating
- Excessive focus on healthy eating
- Eating in secret
- Leaving during meals to use the toilet
- Frequent complaints of being fat or talk of losing weight
Those who are living with an eating disorder can be diagnosed based on symptoms and eating habits. Once diagnosed, treating an eating disorder is a team effort, often involving primary care doctors, dieticians, and mental health professionals.
