Disordered Eating: Common Eating Disorders and How They Present Themselves – Part 2

In the last episode, we discussed the root causes of disordered eating (along with a glimpse into a private piece of Jan’s story). If you missed that BURST tv episode, you may find it here: https://youtu.be/1r2dBiv80QY. In this second episode of disordered eating, we will name and discuss the most common eating disorders, along with their presentation, complications thereof, and treatment.

We discuss the coexistence of body dysmorphic disorder and the various ways those suffering from eating disorders may be afflicted with self-critical thoughts, beliefs, and fixations.

This episode discusses different behaviors which accompany various disorders. Also discussed are ways to sensitively broach the subject, along with how to speak without exacerbating core issues behind the veil of disordered eating.
