Eating Disorders


  • Why do they choose to starve or overeat, make themselves ill and working out to oblivion?
  • Why do they choose to harm themselves and those around them?

The answer is simple. It's not a choice. It's a "must".

Eating disorders are stress coping mechanisms, a safety belt, and identity.

After experiencing any kind of trauma or voices in their head telling them how unworthy they are they have to take emotional and body control back. Because when they feel miserable rules are there to make them feel better.


By setting an abnormal arsenal of self-punishing rules.

The rules give them control and we all want to be in control. They are addicted to the rules. Break them and they feel as if they have lost their identity. One pound more on a scale and they lose control. On the other hand, when down they turn to one thing that will make them happy: food. They deliberately lose weight so that they can eat more!


  • Don't snack in between meals, even if you are starving
  • One glass of water is going to make you fat
  • Don't eat at all and sleep longer
  • Always opt for the lowest calory option
  • Never finish a plate of food
  • Punish yourself physically if you break the rules


Every time when they feel out of control or stressed they made a new set of rules so as to feel safe again.

But the rules that allegedly gave them safety are actually slowly killing them.

They become a hanger for their clothes.

The hardest part is that they are not aware of it- of their ribs showing, the hips protruding, hair falling out.

They think there's nothing wrong with them and often feel very disturbed when involuntarily charged to hospital.

Their "nutrition" plan without any sweets is perfectly normal to them. They weigh themselves at least 10 times a day. After being diagnosed it's much harder for them to follow their rules.


The most common types of eating disorders listed in the diagnostic manual of Psychiatry and Mental health called DSM-IV:

      • Anorexia Nervosa- starving oneself to death
      • Bulimia Nervosa - an umbrella term for binging and purging behaviour
      • Eating disorder – or not otherwise specified. It's heterogeneous category encompassing lots of different types of eating problems:
        • Binge Eating Disorder
        • Night eating syndrome
        • Purging disorder

The last (Eating disorder- not otherwise specified) was officially recognized as a mental disorder only recently, namely in 2013. In a very short period of time, a person consumes huge amounts of food without being hungry. They hide while doing it. After overeating, they feel guilty and disgusted with themselves. Since there is no compensatory behaviour the obesity is the following issue. It is more found in men than in women, unlike the first two disorders.
