Females make up the greater percentage of those affected by eating disorders; however, males are not immune to the disorder. Males can also fall victim to Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Compulsive Overeating.
Eating disorders are not caused by a single known cause. In fact, the majority of the individuals struggling with this disorder have developed it after numerous factors paved the way. These issues surrounding weight, diet, and body image can prove highly dangerous to the physical and mental health of an individual. Because poor body image is at the core of those struggling with eating disorders, it is no surprise that this disorder is associated with depression.
The treatment's success is proportional to the timing of problem diagnosis. The more time that elapses after harmful habits have developed and become routine, the greater the difficulty is to break the unhealthy patterns. Eating disorders are responsible for tremendous damage to both the body and mind, and the longer it is left untreated the greater the danger. If you feel that you or a loved one may be struggling with an eating disorder, it is imperative to seek immediate attention.
This book will give the listener further insight into this female and male issue. From what an eating disorder is to where it stems from, pregnancy concerns, and treatment; this book will not only inform but offer helpful insight for professional help.
