I'm worried I'm putting on too much weight/not losing weight

What is Anorexia Nervosa?

Anorexia Nervosa is a disorder that causes people to become pre-occupied with controlling their weight and shape, and consequently they engage in behaviours that result in severe weight loss. The disorder is  powered by the fear of gaining weight coupled with a relentless pursuit of thinness. People with Anorexia Nervosa are severely underweight. Overall, body shape and weight concerns dominate the individual’s thoughts and the way in which they see themselves; it also affects the way they feel.

The strategies used for weight control vary from individual to individual. Restriction of food intake is the most common strategy used. Other strategies include over-exercising, self-induced vomiting and laxative misuse.

Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is similar to Anorexia Nervosa in the way that those suffering from Bulimia Nervosa share the same distorted thoughts concerning body shape and weight.

People suffering with Bulimia Nervosa binge regularly on large amounts of food and then compensate for the food they have eaten. Individuals with Bulimia Nervosa use extreme compensation methods such as self-induced vomiting, laxatives, diuretics and over-exercising to try and prevent weight gain. As a result, life is a constant battle between the desire to lose weight and the overwhelming compulsion to binge.

I find myself binge eating

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is also characterised by bingeing. Individuals with BED consume large amounts of food whilst feeling out of control and powerless to stop. Individuals with BED tend to eat food even when they are not hungry and continue
eating long after they are full. They may also eat as fast as they can, while barely registering what they are consuming or tasting.

People with Binge Eating Disorder may struggle with feelings of guilt, disgust and depression.
