#NEDAwareness Get In The Know!


Eating disorders – such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder – are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect both a person’s emotional and physical health. In the United States alone, 30 million people will be impacted by an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime. Eating disorders can include extreme emotions, attitudes, and behaviors surrounding weight and food issues. These conditions affect all kinds of people and don’t discriminate by race, age, sex, age or size.
If you or someone you care about might be suffering from an eating disorder, it is important to educate yourself and seek professional guidance as soon as possible because early intervention is key to successful recovery.

  2. This is such an important issue. I've struggled with disordered eating while in high school and college and this is something that's not discussed nearly enough. Thanks for sharing this!

  4. Thank you for this post, when I was in my teen years I had a time where I simply wouldn't eat but work in a very demanding job (auto mechanic) so I lost a lot of weight reallly fast but it left me scared with my body image issues. Especially after having a child.
