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. I haven't responded, in part because I like to formulate a complete answer than spewing something half-baked, and also because I can't explain myself in 140 characters or less! But the more I think about it, the more I r ... 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 »

Could Summer Camp be a Place Where Eating Disorder Behaviors Begin? by Beth F. Patient Expert Posted Tue 26 Jun 2012 11:24am It is amazing to me how early on children are aware of body images. My eight year old daughter has been talking about not wanting to get "fat" or "chubby" for two years now. I have no idea where she came up with that... we try to encourage healthy eating, without talking about fat vs. skinny. As parents, there is such a fine line between ... Read on »
A little bit about being little: eating disorders by Jennifer aka Beautiful MInd Patient ExpertHealth MavenFacebook Posted Sat 23 Aug 2008 11:53pm I have not written much here about my history with food, and my former eating disorder. It's not a subject I talk about too often anymore, except with my therapist, who did not know me when I was going through anorexia, so she does not really understand my whole history with it. It is a long history, and one that shaped my life to a certain degre ... Read on »
