Health & Fit The Truth About Eating Disorders People Often Overlook
What the Heck Is Mindful Eating and Why Should I Bother?
Is this practice just another hippy-dippy craze, or is it a thoughtful way to approach food? I gave it a shot for two weeks, and here's what I discovered.My attitude changed one morning while unconsciously scarfing down a cinnamon roll from the vending machine at work. Let that sink in for a moment: a cinnamon roll. From a vending machine. At work. Maybe it was time I looked into this thing called "mindful eating" after all. I decided to give it a shot for two weeks.
A woman explains the common misconceptions people have when they hear the words "eating disorder." She explains what she wants people to know instead.
When someone hears the words eating disorder, they often think of anorexia or bulimia.
What they usually don’t think of is, diabulima, pica, EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified), night eating syndrome, or any of the other types of that exist.
When someone hears the words eating disorder, they often think of a girl and not a boy. I mean boys don’t get eating disorders right?
If You Think You've Tried Everything to Lose Weight, Maybe It's Time For This Combo
We know diet trends come and go, but there are two new weight-loss wonders that seem to have some staying power. If both of these diets are really that great, could they be even better together, or could it be too much of a good thing? We turned to a couple of experts to find out if these diets can be done together safely and effectively. But first, a little refresher.
When someone hears the words eating disorder, most of the time they think of a white girl, because “only white girls get eating disorders.”
When someone hears the words eating disorder, they often think of a severely underweight girl who hasn’t eaten in days. If you have an eating disorder you have to be underweight, and of course you never eat.
When someone hears the words eating disorder, they might think of a vein, self-obsessed teenager who cares too much about her appearance. Well that’s what an eating disorder is about — it’s all about appearance.
When someone hears the words eating disorder, they probably think of someone who craves attention.
But the reality is this is not the truth.
The truth is there are many different types of eating disorders. The truth is boys can have eating disorders too; people of all genders can struggle with an eating disorder. The truth is you can have an eating disorder regardless of your race, ethnicity or skin color. The truth is you don’t have to be underweight to have an eating disorder, eating disorders are mental illnesses, sometimes with physical side effects. The truth is eating disorders are about so much more than appearance. The truth is eating disorders are not about seeking attention, they are not a choice.

But people rarely hear the words “eating disorder,” so how would they know the truth?
It’s time people hear the words eating disorder. This is why we need to talk about eating disorders more. The stigma and misunderstanding around eating disorders needs to change. Eating disorders are serious. Eating disorders kill. The words “eating disorder” need to be heard.
