  1. Supported by Eating disorders

  2. Statistics • In February 2015, it was estimated that more than 725,000 people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder  • 11% of these cases were male. • Most common eating disorders are anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. • Eating disorders are most commonly found in adolescents • There were cases of eating disorders in people as young as 6 and as old as 70. More information:

  3. Anorexia nervosa • characterised by excessive weight loss • self-starvation • preoccupation with food/constantly thinking or talking about food • anxiety about gaining weight or being ‘fat’ • denial of hunger • consistent excuses to avoid mealtimes • excessive, rigid exercise regime to burn off calories • withdrawal from usual friends

  4. Anorexia • What to look for • rapid loss of weight • change in eating habits • withdrawal from friends or social gatherings • peach fuzz • hair loss or dry skin • extreme concern about appearance or dieting

  5. Bulimia nervosa • Recurrent inappropriate compensatory behaviour in order to prevent weight gain, such as self-induced vomiting, fasting, excessive exercise or misuse of laxatives, diuretics, enemas or other medications. • The binge eating and inappropriate compensatory behaviors both occur, on average, at least twice a week for three months. • Self-evaluation is unduly influenced by body shape and weight. • The disturbance does not occur exclusively during episodes of anorexia nervosa.

  6. Bulimia: symptoms • eating large amounts of food uncontrollably (binging) • purging or vomiting • excessive concern about body weight • depression or changes in mood • irregular menstrual periods • unusual dental problems, swollen cheeks or glands, heartburn or bloating (swelling of the stomach)

  7. Warning signs to look for • evidence of binge eating • evidence of purging behaviors • excessive, rigid exercise regime • unusual swelling of the cheeks and jaw area • discoloration or staining of teeth

  8. Binge eating disorder/compulsive overeating • Characterisedprimarily by periods of uncontrolled, impulsive, or continuous eating beyond the point of feeling comfortably full. • While there is no purging, there may be sporadic fasts or repetitive diets and often feelings of shame or self-hatred after a binge. • People who overeat compulsively may struggle with anxiety, depression, and loneliness, which can contribute to their unhealthy episodes of binge eating. • Body weight may vary from normal to mild, moderate, or severe obesity.

  9. Risk factors • low self-esteem • feelings of inadequacy or lack of control in life • depression, anxiety, anger or loneliness

  10. Interpersonal factors • troubled family and personal relationships • difficulty expressing emotions and feelings • history of being teased or ridiculed based on size or weight • history of physical or sexual abuse

  11. Social factors • cultural pressures that glorify ‘thinness’ and place value on obtaining the ‘perfect body’ • narrow definitions of beauty that include only women and men of specific body weights and shapes • cultural norms that value people on the basis of physical appearance and not inner qualities and strengths
