For those who want to be slimmer and more fit, it is very discouraging. It’s not surprising that according to the National Eating Disorder Association, in the USA up to 30 million people of all genders develop eating disorders.  Social media and news articles have brought eating disorders, and specifically anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating, into public and professional awareness.

Do realize that, as is true of many classification systems, people don’t necessarily fit neatly into one disorder. Often symptoms of more than one overlap. Brief case examples are provided as illustrations. Eating Disorders You ...
