Eating disorders are characterized by patterns that lead to unhealthy dieting and in turn negative physical and psychological effects. Bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa are both classified as mental illnesses, and are often grouped together even though they have different signs and symptoms. Treatment is required to help overcome fears of gaining weight, a distorted body image, and to restore healthy eating and lifestyle habits.

People with anorexia go to extreme lengths to keep a slim physique, including purging, taking laxatives/diet pills/diuretics, and excessive exercise to keep their weight below a safe level for their age. Anorexic patients often live in denial of their situation, making broaching the subject as a concerned friend or family member quite difficult.

Bulimia is identified by cycles of binging and purging that put serious negative pressure on the body. Signs include binge eating, vomiting, use of laxatives, consistent worry about weight, feeling guilty, lack of energy, and staying the same weight even after dieting.

In a society where high-calorie foods are cheap, accessible and visible through advertising, while technology results in a less-active population, obesity is a disorder that affects a growing number of people every year. It is a complex disorder that is often linked to binge eating – eating over 20,000 calories in a single sitting. The social stigma of being overweight in Western society can make those affected by obesity not as open to seeking out help to start a healthier lifestyle.

There are significant health concerns associated with an excessive amount of body fat. These concerns include high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. Not just a cosmetic issue, obesity can lead to sufferers contracting potentially life-threatening illnesses. A lifestyle change is essential for a complete recover to avoid more serious conditions.

The behavioral and lifestyle changes that we create here at LifeREstyle will be with you for life.
