We live in a society where disordered eating has been normalized.
Cutting out whole food groups, intentionally skipping meals, and following strict meal plans is the trendy thing to do. And it’s what most do to “fix” their eating habits, but those are the exact reasons why their eating habits need fixing in the first place.
Disordered eating is used to describe a range of irregular eating behaviors that may or may not warrant a diagnosis of a specific eating disorder. These behaviors or symptoms include, but are not limited to:
– Frequent dieting
– Chronic weight fluctuations
– Rigid routines surrounding food
– Feelings of guilt associated with eating
– Preoccupation with food, weight and body image that negatively impacts quality of life
– Feelings of loss of control around food
– Using exercise, food restriction, fasting or purging to “make up for bad foods” consumed.
– Disconnected from hunger and fullness
Whether you struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating, both are serious conditions that need to be addressed by a nutrition professional. You need individualized attention, ongoing support, and a realistic plan to unlearn these unhealthy habits and create a clear path towards building healthy ones.
