Understanding Eating Disorders


Someone with an eating disorder will have a tendency to focus disproportionally on their weight and shape.

They develop an abnormal attitude towards food that results in a change in both their eating habits and behaviour patterns.

Three of the most common eating disorders are:

Anorexia Nervosa

You try to keep your weight as low as possible, by starving yourself, exercising excessively or a combination of the two.

Bulimia

With Bulimia you try to control your weight by binge eating and then making yourself sick, or using laxatives.

Binge eating

You have a compulsion to overeat.

The common causes:

Stress

At home, work, school or university.

Family history

There may be a family history of addiction, disorder or depression.

Social pressure

An obsession with being slim, with underlying pressure from society, or possibly a job (model, athlete, dancer).

Personality

Low self-esteem, anxiety, obsessive, perfectionist.

Vogue Magazine, and its 19 editors around the world, announced on May 2nd that they would "not knowingly work with models under the age of 16 or who appear to have an eating disorder."

The magazine, widely viewed as the style bible, is at last sending out a clear message that being too thin is neither fashionable nor acceptable.

Sara Zi, who was discovered at 14 and now heads up The Model Alliance, which is dedicated to ensuring that young models are properly cared for, has said this move "marks an evolution in the industry."
