Eating Disorders

An eating disorder is a kind of mental illness which distorts a person's healthy relationship with food and body image.  They are not 'lifestyle choices', but serious and sometimes fatal illnesses associated with disturbances in eating behaviors and thoughts.  The most common eating disorders in the United States are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and compulsive eating disorder.

The resources on the right are arranged by type: eBooks, journal articles, videos, and websites. They all relate to eating disorders in some way, though individual resources may cover more focused specializations.
