H E A L T H:
Problems With Food

Alexa Van Daam, 17

We've all heard about people who are out of control eaters and become grossly overweight. Or people who refuse to eat anything and get really really thin. These guys may not know it, but they could end up killing themselves!

So what's going on here, anyway and how are these people different from the rest of us who diet because we want to look good?

We all need food to live.

But for some people the eating thing takes on a whole other meaning than just a way to get the nourishment our bodies need.

Maybe you've got a problem around eating, so it feels like something is way out of control. Maybe you know someone who does. Maybe you'd just like to find out more about eating disorders: what they are, why people develop them, and how to get help. You're in the right place.

Anorexia Nervosa - So freaked about getting fat that you just aren't eating?

Bulimia - A dangerous, endless cycle of dieting and overeating.

Compulsive Over-Eating - Out of control eating with no power to stop!
