Eating disorders are very common. They are usually the result of someone being dissatisfied with their appearance or being too fat or just a general bad mood. A person who suffers from a disorder will usually eat when they are sad, depressed, bored, tired, anxious, or just plain bored. They will usually eat a large breakfast, so they are not really hungry.
If you ever have to deal with someone like that it’s always a good idea to trust your instincts. You can call up the local school nurse and ask her if she could check on her or let them know that you had an issue with the EAT. The nurse is going to check the EAT report for you and if she finds out to her dismay that the patient has an eating disorder she is going to refer you to a psychiatrist. It would be in her best interest to refer you to someone who is a registered and practicing psychiatrist. It may be worth seeing a psychiatrist about your mental health issue and you may learn some valuable life skills as well.
If you don’t want to go to a psychiatrist but you trust your doctor enough to tell him about your concerns, then there is another option available. You can go online to search quality evaluator guidelines. There are several places where you can search for guidelines. One place is by state. Just type in your state and the guidelines that should come up will be what you need.
Another place to search is online forums. There are several forums dedicated to people who struggle with bulimia or binge eating disorders. There you can get information about eating disorders and what others have done to treat them. You may find some great tips that will help you when you decide to eat less.
Some people suggest that you eat more frequently throughout the day. They say this helps you burn more calories. Others say eat every three hours. It may take some experimentation to figure out what works for you. Just remember to eat less at night so you don’t over indulge in food.
Regardless, of what you do, just make sure you don’t eat more than you need. Eat until you are full. That may be different for different people but it is good advice for those struggling with binging episodes. The more you control your eating the better off you will be.
