Eating disorders are characterized by severe disturbances in eating behavior. The practice of an eating disorder

can be viewed as a survival mechanism. Just as an alcoholic uses alcohol to cope, a person with an eating

disorder can use eating, purging or restricting to deal with their problems. Some of the underlying issues that are

associated with an eating disorder include low self-esteem, depression, feelings of loss of control, feelings of

worthlessness, identity concerns, family communication problems and an inability to cope with emotions. The

practice of an eating disorder may be an expression of something that the eating disordered individual has found

no other way of expressing. Eating disorders are usually divided into three categories: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia

Nervosa and Compulsive Overeating.
