About Eating Disorder Recovery

of Mid-Michigan

 

Problems with eating and body image are prevalent. In the United States, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or EDNOS (Wade, Keski-Rahkonen, & Hudson, 2011). (EDNOS is now recognized as OSFED, other specified feeding or eating disorder, per the DSM-5.) Underlying the behaviors of emotional, restrictive, or binge eating as well as excessive focus on how we look, lies core life problems that we avoid by engaging in problem eating/dieting behaviors. When we try to avoid pain in our lives, it doesn’t work – the pain does not go away and our attempts to avoid the pain, make us feel even worse. Our ability to engage fully in our lives in a way that creates happiness involves letting go of avoid-ant behaviors and addressing core issues in our lives.
