Feb. 18, 2013 - PRLog -- In an annual campaign to bring public attention to the critical needs of people with eating disorders and their families, thousands of people come together in communities across the country, including CNS Healthcare,with activities to raise awareness about body image and bring national attention to the severity of eating disorders, which are bio-psycho-social illnesses with potentially devastating, sometimes life-threatening, consequences. While there is hope and recovery is possible – particularly with early intervention – many people suffer from the long-term effects of these illnesses. Awareness of the signs is a good start to determining if you might have an eating disorder. Following are things to watch for. However, it is always best to seek an assessment by a professional.

1. Drastic weight loss.

2. Preoccupation with counting calories.

3. The need to weigh yourself several times a day.

4. Excessive exercise.

5. Binge eating or purging.

6. Food rituals, like taking tiny bites, skipping food groups or re-arranging food on the plate.

7. Avoiding meals or only wanting to eat alone.

8. Taking laxatives or diuretics.

9. Smoking to curb appetite.

10. Persistent view of yourself as fat that worsens despite weight loss.
