All joking aside, eating disorders are a serious problem.

The most common eating disorders are:

Anorexia nervosa – when you try to keep your weight as low as possible by not eating enough food, exercising too much, or both.

Bulimia – when you sometimes lose control and eat a lot of food in a very short amount of time (binging) and are then deliberately sick, use laxatives (medication to help you poo), restrict what you eat, or do too much exercise to try to stop yourself gaining weight.

Binge eating disorder (BED) – when you regularly lose control of your eating, eat large portions of food all at once until you feel uncomfortably full, and are then often upset or guilty.

Other specified feeding or eating disorder(OSFED) – when your symptoms don’t exactly match those of anorexia, bulimia or binge eating disorder, but it doesn’t mean it’s a less serious illness

Warning signs of an eating disorder in someone else

It can often be very difficult to identify that a loved one or friend has developed an eating disorder.

Warning signs to look out for include:

Dramatic weight loss

Lying about how much and when they’ve eaten, or how much they weigh

Eating a lot of food very fast

Going to the bathroom a lot after eating, often returning looking flushed

Excessively or obsessively exercising

Avoiding eating with others

Cutting food into small pieces or eating very slowly

Wearing loose or baggy clothes to hide their weight loss
