In recent years the help available to people suffering with eating disorders has improved drastically, but there is still a great deal of misunderstanding surrounding the topic. Many people assume that eating disorders are a cry for attention, or that it is all about wanting to look good, but in reality, eating disorders are far more than that. There are three main eating disorders:
- Anorexia Nervosa, the fear of gaining weight or becoming fat
- Bulimia Nervosa, the act of binge eating then purging or vomiting
- Binge Eating Disorder, eating until uncomfortably full in one sitting.
