Eating Disorders

 

Do you find yourself:

  • Restricting  food intake  (eating very little, eating nothing, or trying to eat as little as possible)?

  • Binging (eating large quantities of food in a short period of time)?

  • Purging (using methods such as self-induced vomiting or laxatives to attempt to “get rid of” what you’ve eaten)?

  • Compulsively Overeating (eating even if you are not hungry) ?

  • Compulsively Exercising (exercising too much, too vigorously, or to the point where it is interfering with your life)?

  • Taking diet pills, laxatives, diuretics or other pills/ harmful substances to help you curb appetite or assist in purging?

  • Chewing/Spitting (putting food in your mouth, chewing it up and then spitting it out — this is another form of binging/purging)?

  • Drinking a lot of water, diet soda tea or coffee, chewing  gum continually, smoking, and/or taking caffeine pills as an attempt to control your appetite and feel more energetic?
