Video Description

"Eating Disorders can range from a mild preoccupation with food to a life threatening disorder. No matter where you are on that spectrum, it is a debilitating and exhausting and I want to encourage you to not settle for partial freedom.

In this video, I share 8 signs that you or someone you love may struggle with an eating disorder.

1-Constant preoccupation with food.
2-Feelings of guilt, shame or failure after you eat.
3-Excessive counting of calorie/fat/carb intake…
4-When the # on the scale has power over your mood. It can set you off into a binge or starvation mode.
5-Skip meals or restrict intake when you know you will eat in public. Need to be in control of what you eat.
6-All or nothing thinking. Good vs bad food.
7-Use of laxatives, excessive exercise…
8-Desire to be around food, but not allow yourself to enjoy it.

You are beautiful… don’t forget it.
