Suffering from anorexia, bulimia or compulsive eating can be a lonely business.
There is often denial that there is a problem in the first place even though there is likely to be a change in appearance and clothes may well cease to fit.
There are likely to be feelings of isolation and unhappiness as well as low self esteem, discomfort with appearance, and detachment from the reality of how the body really appears.
Eating disorders can start from yo-yo dieting or comfort eating as a result of emotional issues that feel hard to deal with – hurt, rejection, sadness and anger.
Or, eating disorders can result from a changed situation, which challenges the immune system, such as adolescence, a BCG vaccination, marriage, divorce, stressful job, promotion etc.
The causes are usually multifactorial and multi layered.
Some weight issues are the result of bad habits or a lack of awareness concerning nutrition. In many cases though, there is an emotional component as well.
To be successful, the habit and the emotional driver need to be addressed.
