Eating Disorders


Common Characteristics

Eating disorders are characterized by disturbances in eating behavior.  This can mean eating too much, not eating enough, or eating in an extremely unhealthy manner (such as binging or stuffing yourself over and over).  Many people argue that simple overeating should be considered a disorder, but at this time it is not in this category.
