Overview: Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are not necessarily a sign that there is a problem with food. It is widely held by professionals that eating disorders represent symptoms of deeper problems. Eating disorders affect millions of people. In the US conservative estimates indicate that after puberty, 5-10 million girls and women and 1 million boys are struggling with eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, or borderline conditions. The most effective treatment for an eating disorder is some form of counseling combined with medical and nutritional attention.
