What are Eating Disorders?
Body distortion is a real thing and truly has little to do with food, and rather the need for control. It becomes a way to cope with difficult problems and give a false sense of control to a painful situation. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are the most recognized eating disorders and can lead to serious physical complications if left untreated.
