Psychologists say that it's about more than just food... the root cause for some people is control and of course, societal pressure

After being diagnosed with anorexia, they put me on medication that made me gain so much weight... then I developed bulimia. I'm still battling with finding a balance, 7 years later

I've had disturbing eating habits when I was younger. I was so self conscious I wanted to fit in with the skinny girls. I'd constantly starve myself and my parents got so worried that had me see a psychologist. I'm just really thankful my parents really helped me out. I've learned to eat healthy and love myself more.

Most women have that urge to feel skinny but I just had to stop myself or else I would die. I had to seek help and I felt so ashamed admitting it. My family were always there for me and helped me go through everything.

Eating disorders are purely psychological, not physical. Therefore, when attempting to overcome it, one must acknowledge that, and not simply try and overcome the physical element of it. It is a physical side-effect, of a larger, psychological problem, that needs to be addressed, and overcome as a whole. Otherwise, it will just leak into other aspects of your life, and it won't be long before you return to it.
