Signs of eating disorders
  • What is the definition of an eating disorder?
  • I've tried every diet under the sun and still can't lose weight and keep it off.
  • I binge but don't purge. I just exercise more between binges and control my weight that way. Is that anything to worry about?
  • I was more than 100 pounds overweight. I've lost about 30 pounds, but I've run out of steam.
  • I try dieting but I always end up feeling so deprived that I cave in. Once that happens, I feel totally miserable, like I've failed and have to start all over again. It's a vicious cycle. How can I break it?
  • I'm a recovering anorexic/bulimic. How do you get over looking in the mirror and seeing nothing but fat?
  • I've been bingeing and vomiting for several years and it makes me feel like a disgusting heap. It seems like the more I try to stop, the more I eat, and once I eat, I have this irresistible urge to throw up. Any suggestions?
