What is disordered eating?

Disordered eating is a broad term that describes a range of irregular eating habits and behaviours. That can include the diagnosis of eating disorders such as overeating, anorexia nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and bulimia.

These behaviours can impact your physical and mental health. Know that, while disordered eating is a serious issue, everyone deserves to have support as they work to overcome it.

Eating disorder therapists and counsellors offer effective and proven treatment options. You don’t have to feel like disordered eating is too difficult or complex to address. With the support of therapy for eating disorders, you can make positive changes related to food and eating.

Symptoms of disordered eating

Symptoms of disordered eating can include frequent dieting, a feeling of lost control around food and eating, and anxiety surrounding eating. Other symptoms include overeating and rigid eating rituals.

These symptoms can affect you physically, as well as emotionally, socially, and professionally. Disordered eating can become a serious issue, but you can find effective treatment.

If some of these symptoms sound familiar, remember that help is available. You have the power to access support from a counsellor, social worker, or psychotherapist registered in Canada. Eating disorder help in Canada is available to you.

How can disordered eating be addressed?

If you’re struggling with disordered eating, we recommend speaking with a doctor or mental health professional. They can help establish a recovery and treatment plan.

Specialized disordered eating counselling can lead to a lasting and positive change. For example, counselling for bulimia and anorexia takes the unique nature of those conditions into account, supporting more specific treatment options.

Common types of therapy for disorder eating include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Medication and nutrition counselling from registered dieticians are also common — and are often a valuable asset.

People with eating disorders sometimes feel trapped or ashamed. That’s a totally normal reaction — just remember that you do have options to find compassionate support. A professional counsellor can help you find a way to move forward, addressing eating disorder issues and building healthy new habits.
