There is no single cause and there is no single form of Disordered Eating.
We understand Disordered eating as:
Any type of eating that regularly doesn’t match physiological needs, whether eating too much or too little.
Eating behaviors that interfere with and harm proper physical, psychological, and interpersonal functioning.
A systematic and longstanding preoccupation with food/eating/not eating.
Eating behaviors that both cause distress and are trying to relieve distress- as quoted in the Austin Powers movie, ” I eat because I’m unhappy, and I’m unhappy because I eat.”
The lockdown has been hard on everyone, some people more than others. We tend to eat more or eat less or make poor lifestyle decisions when we are placed in an abnormal situation. BUT!!! Its never too late to start and make good choices. You have one body, take care of it, it’s carrying you around, hence make sure it is healthy and strong!
