Overview

An eating disorder is an illness that causes serious disturbances
to your everyday diet, such as eating extremely small
amounts of food or severely overeating. A person with an eating
disorder may have started out just eating smaller or larger
amounts of food, but at some point, the urge to eat less or
more spiraled out of control. Severe distress or concern about
body weight or shape may also characterize an eating disorder.
Eating disorders frequently appear during the teen years or young adulthood but
may also develop during childhood or later in life.1,2 Common eating disorders
include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.
Eating disorders affect both men and women. For the latest statistics on eating
disorders, see the NIMH website at http://www.nimh.nih.gov/statistics/index.shtml.
