Disordered eating and eating disorders by Carrie A. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 15 Sep 2009 10:02pm The Twitter-sphere has been discussing the difference between disordered eating and eating disorders (specifically EDNOS ) today.

Patient Expert Posted Mon 10 Nov 2008 9:25pm When I began blogging, I always considered being a disordered eater a separate entity from having an eating disorder. After all, every woman seems to be a “disordered eater” in one way or another. And since I never truly binged; never binged and purged (I cry when I throw up; last time was alcohol-induced, at a Dave Matthews Band conce ... Read on »
Disordered Eating vs. Eating Disorders by WeAreTheRealDeal Posted Fri 09 Mar 2012 8:10pm Ours is a culture of disordered behaviors.  It is so common to see college kids engaging in binge drinking or strange dieting practices that we often overlook their seriousness.  I live near New York University and continuously see kids almost falling-down-drunk in the streets on the weekends.  The #1 most commonly asked question we receive [...] ...

Disorder is the New Black [Overcoming Disordered Eating, Part Five] by TheSmartCook Posted Tue 26 Nov 2013 6:27am Yesterday I began Jamie’s FREE four-week Good Life Holiday Challenge , having been subtly, but consistently, encouraged by my dear friend Melissa to ‘just try’ Intuitive Eating, and having seen how much Jamie helped another dear more-than-blend of mine. It seemed like as good a time as any… and y’all know I’m a sucker for anything free. ... Read on »
Behavior Change Journal: Overcoming Disordered Eating (Introduction) by TheSmartCook Posted Tue 12 Nov 2013 6:13am Aside from the free food I’ve been procuring, and pleas for help in my first independent research project, I haven’t spent all that much time talking about my PhD program (except for brief references  to my classes and allusions to the extensive amount of reading I’ve been doing). Much of this semester has involved studies of disorde ... Read on »
Imperfect, Intuitive, and Illogical Eating (Overcoming Disordered Eating, Part Four) by TheSmartCook Posted Tue 19 Nov 2013 6:16am Shall we get back to my Behavior Change Journal for a bit? Yes, yes we shall. [To catch yourself up on this project for my theory class, check out the first  three posts on my journey to overcome disordered eating. And forgive me for the application of theory I decided I leave in here.] ——————————– October 9, 2013 I’ ... Read on »

Body attitudes in patients with eating disorders a...[Eat Behav. 2009] - PubMed Result by Laura Patient Expert Posted Thu 12 Mar 2009 3:12pm Unfortunately, because diagnostic categorization of eating disorders are based primarily on body weight, statistics on recovery are also based on restored body weight. Which is dumb. The illness is still there, at least for a while, and withdrawing treatment and alarm at the very time one most needs it mentally strikes me as cruel. I am a ... Read on »
Posting Nutritional Info: Good Idea or Catalyst for Disordered Eating? by Caitlin L. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Fri 06 Mar 2009 2:41pm Here's a catch 22 for you this morning. Harvard's dining services had decided to post the nutritional breakdown of the food it sold to students alongside the products as a way to promote healthy eating. The plan apparently backfired when a number of students and parents expressed concern for those students with eating disorders or "unhealthy" foo ... Read on »
