Clinical Support

Registered and licensed dietitians coordinate nutrient intake and physical activity. Dietitians provide education in nutrition, metabolism, restaurant eating, cooking, grocery shopping and disordered eating behaviors such as food fears, rituals, and calorie counting.

There are many other eating disorders that do not necessarily fall into the categories below. For example, eating a normal quantity of food and then purging is an eating disorder. If food seems to dominate your life we encourage you to seek help.

Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders

There several different types of eating disorders but the most common are:  Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, Anorexia and Avoidant or Restrictive Food Intake Disorder.

Common eating disorder signs include:

  • Drastic or sudden changes in eating habits
  • Drastic fluctuations of an individual's weight
  • Excessive Diet
  • Rigid food rules
  • Becoming completely overtaken or preoccupied with food
  • Having consistently negative feelings about your body
  • Extreme exercise up to the point of exhaustion
  • Lack of emotion or feeling depressed
  • Binge Eating
  • Purging

Bulimia

Bulimia tends to develop during adolescence and early adulthood. It is an eating disorder in which large quantities are consumed within a short period. This overeating is often followed by self-induced vomiting, purging or fasting. People with Bulimia may hold the belief that popularity and self-esteem are determined by weight and body shape. Bulimia Nervosa is a serious potentially life-threatening eating disorder. If you think you may have it please seek help immediately.

Statistics on Bulimia:

  • 90-95% are female
  • Onset = ages 16-19
  • Lifetime Prevalence
  • Females 1.1%
  • College Women 6-8%
  • Chronic, if left untreated

Anorexia

Anorexia tends to affect more women than men and tends to develop during adolescence or early adulthood. People with anorexia tend to view themselves as being overweight even if they are dangerously underweight. They tend to monitor their weight constantly, severely restrict their calories and avoid eating certain types of foods. Anorexia may cause a relentless pursuit of thinness in individuals and unwillingness to maintain a healthy weight. Anorexia can be classified into two subtypes: the restricting type and the binge eating type. Anorexia can be very damaging to the body.  

Statistics on Anorexia:

  • 90-95% are female
  • Onset - age 13-15

  • Chronic
