It could be an early symptom of an eating disorder if you find it increasingly difficult to focus on other elements of your life because you are so consumed with food and weight issues. Eating disorders can completely take over a person’s life and result in seriously, even fatal, medical issues if left untreated. Any age or gender can be affected by eating disorders; however, women are more likely than males to experience them. Adolescence and early adulthood are when symptoms frequently manifest.
Anorexia Nervosa As they get fixated on losing weight, individuals with anorexia will deprive themselves of food to the point of starving. When someone has anorexia, they may refuse to eat, engage in binge eating and purging, or overexert themselves physically to reduce, get rid of, or “burn” calories.
Nervous bulimia Binging on a lot of food in a short period of time can make bulimics feel out of control. They then scramble to burn off the extra calories by forcing themselves to vomit, misusing laxatives, or engaging in excessive activity. The person experiences a great deal of emotional and bodily harm because of this vicious cycle, which takes control of many elements of their life. Most bulimics are either normal weight or slightly overweight.
