What is an eating disorder?
Eating disorders are abnormal patterns of eating and exercising that severely interfere with your everyday life.
For example, you might eat extremely small amounts of food or eat in an uncontrolled way.
You might also be worried about food, body weight and appearance.
The most common eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) is another eating disorder that occurs mainly in children.
All eating disorders can occur in both males and females of any age.
With treatment, most people with an eating disorder make a good recovery.
