Food is more than just it’s nutrients and it’s calorie value. Food is nourishment, it is social, it is enjoyable and it creates memories
Health trends and diets will continue to appear and continue to be taken to the extreme, and the disordered eating patterns that ensue should never be overlooked as a ‘phase’. They are not normal and they should never be accepted as normal.
Knowledge is power, and we hope that by highlighting this sensitive issue we can create some awareness and in turn bring about some really beneficial discussion. If you yourself have been feeling some of these symptoms, sometimes it can make all the difference in being able to have a name for it and a plan of action for the next step to treatment.
There is no shame in asking for help, we all deserve to enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures – eating and enjoying food!
