What is disordered eating?

Disordered eating describes irregular patterns of eating such as starvation, bingeing, purging and obsessive exercising. Anorexia and bulimia are not clinically defined as eating disorders although they can all be equally as serious.

Disordered eating can cause distress, health issues and pain and may indicate deeper psychological problems.

The appreciation of food as a means of survival is root to the cause of disordered eating. The need to stay healthy and keep our weight in check puts pressure on our eating. Long office hours and family commitments may mean that eating is irregular and inadequate.

A change in eating patterns can also be caused by other mental disorders or by factors that are generally consideed to be unrelated mental disorders (eg. extreme homesickness).

Although disordered eating has a lower profile than anorexia and bulimia, it is important to recognise the symptoms and receive help where appropriate.
