Diet Or Eating Disorder?
Eating disorders are usually complex and their treatment requires a considerable effort. But with a little help you can get rid of them. Anorexia, bulimia and binge-eating disorder or compulsive eating are diseases of the mind, body and spirit and, therefore, all these categories of dysfunctions must be addressed separately for the treatment to be effective. Some people think that removing bad eating habits and correcting symptoms leads to a total cure. However, eating disorder treatments are more complex than usually people think.
Types of eating disorders
There are three types of eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimina nervosa and eating disorders of unspecified type. Binge-eating disorder or compulsive eating is placed in the last category. The person with anorexia will lose weight at least 15% of normal body weight, restrict eating and experience amenorrhea (in women). Binge eating disorder is very similar to bulimia, but bulimia is characterized by recurrent excessive eating followed by compensatory behaviors. In contrast, binge-eating disorder sometimes alternates restrictive eating, without the characteristic behaviors of bulimia: vomiting, excessive exercise, abuse of laxatives, diuretics or diet pill use. There is nothing unusual for someone with anorexia or bulimia to progress to binge-eating disorder at some point or someone with these problems to become anorexic.
Eating Disorders Causes
The most powerful trigger that underlies eating disorders are weight loss diets. Those who have never followed any diet, nad never kept track of meals taken, are less likely to develop an eating disorder and are more likely to maintain normal body weight.
How foods are consumed turns them into good or bad foods.
Diets affect the metabolism and making it a habit to follow weight loss regimes, could lead to obesity induced by diet. Metabolism will slow down in order to adapt to low food consumption. When you return to a normal diet, you will win back any lost weight, and sometimes even more. Researchers have already proven that more than 95% of people who are dieting, gained back about every pound they lost. Studies show that yoyo effect is one of the most harmful for the body, compared with a slight overweight status. The human body strives to achieve ideal weight, which in reality is not that right, but the person wants to achieve it. Family history, culture and race are the most important factors for size and body shape. Attempts to change what was scheduled in the building of a people may be unnecessary and unrealistic.
