Obsessing about food and calorie intake.
- Stashing food around or a lack of food in the house
- wearing clothes that conceal your shape
- a fear of losing control, expressing an obsessive behaviour towards food: Rituals, etc.
- Making excuses not to eat around people or not eating
- Using dangerous methods for weight loss such as laxatives, overtraining.
If you or anyone you know expresses these types of symptoms, they may suffer from a chronic body issue.
Body/Eating Disorders – The risks
There are a significant amount of differences between respective eating disorders. Anorexia Nervosa can result in the use of extreme methods to prevent the person from eating such as high-calorie restrictions. Others may find themselves overeating as a method of dealing with stress or anxiety. But the long-term risks attached to these conditions make them a serious concern.
Restrictive eating behaviour can result in physical issues such as reduced bone density, kidney failure along with other vital organs. And can have long-term effects on mental health.
