List of Eating Disorders we treat...
People with anorexia view themselves as overweight, even if they’re dangerously underweight. They monitor their weight, avoid eating certain types of foods, and severely restrict their calories.
People with bulimia eat large amounts of food in short periods of time, then force vomitting. They fear gaining weight despite being at a normal weight.
AR Food Intake Disorder
Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder is an eating disorder that causes people to under eat. This is either due to a lack of interest in food or distaste for how certain foods look, smell, or taste.
Rumination disorder can affect people at all stages of life. People with the condition generally vomit the food they’ve recently swallowed. Then, they chew it again and either swallow it or spit it out.
People with binge eating disorder regularly and uncontrollably consume large amounts of food in short periods of time. Unlike people with other eating disorders, they do not purge.
