FAQs about eating disorders

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can you be vegan and have an eating disorder?

    It is possible to have an eating disorder while being vegan. For the majority, becoming vegan is an effort to end animal cruelty and suffering. To cut back on their calorie and food intake, which might result in eating disorders, some people may turn to veganism. You are encouraged to consider the reasons behind your decision to adopt a vegan lifestyle and determine whether they are connected to any disordered eating behaviours or ideas by an eating disorder dietician.

  • What is orthorexia?

    The abnormal attention on eating healthy that characterizes orthorexia is an obsessive fixation on the quality rather than the number of one’s meals. The “ideal diet” can be attained by engaging in behaviors like tracking macros or any form of manipulation or exclusion. For more details on this subject, see my post Vegan Orthorexia: Everything you need to Know.

  • Is veganism a form of orthorexia?

    Being vegan comes from a place of compassion for animals and personal responsibility for sustainability, thus it is not a type of orthorexia. Having said that, veganism can be employed as a disguise by people with orthorexia to use the diet as a means of making their disease acceptable in society. Veganism does not cause orthorexia itself, but it can encourage the condition.

    If you are battling with vegan orthorexia, recovery is possible. An eating disorder dietician will assist you on your path and help you change your connection to food.

  • What is bulimia nervosa?

    Bulimia nervosa (BN) is a type of eating disorder that can be fatal in which sufferers secretly binge by overeating and losing control of their eating. Purging episodes follow to get rid of the extra calories in a harmful way.

  • What is the root of all eating disorders?

    Eating disorders have numerous causes that are not all fully understood. We do, however, know that eating disorders may have biological, psychological, social, or even genetic reasons where the disorder runs in the family.

  • What is anorexia nervosa?

    The most prevalent eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, is characterised by unusually low body weight, a strong fear of gaining weight, and an incorrect perception of one’s weight.

  • What are three signs that someone may have an eating disorder?

    Significant weight loss, refusal to consume certain meals, such as carbohydrates or fats, avoidance of mealtimes and eating in front of others are all indicators of an eating disorder. If you think you might have an eating disorder, an eating disorder dietitian can help you identify these symptoms and support you as you overcome them.

  • What are the risk factors for eating disorders?

    A family history of mental illness or type 1 diabetes, personality qualities like perfectionism and poor self-worth, and pressure from family and loved ones to lose weight are some risk factors for developing an eating disorder.

  • How do you reverse eating disorders?

    With the assistance of medical specialists such as eating disorder dietitians, doctors, and therapists, as well as with the support of family and caretakers, eating disorders can be reversed. You will be able to improve your connection with food, your body, and your mind through this slow but incredibly rewarding process.

  • Can I be vegan in recovery?

    It depends. It’s crucial to think carefully about your decision to follow a vegan diet. You can entirely recover from your eating disorder on a vegan diet if you’re doing it only to help animals and the environment. However, an eating disorder dietitian would advise putting veganism on hold while you recover if you became vegan in order to reduce your calorie intake, lose weight, or alter your appearance.

  • What is the difference between eating disorders and disordered eating?

    Between eating disorders and disordered eating, there are a few essential distinctions to be made, with symptom severity and degree being the main factor. A complex illness known as an eating disorder is defined by improper eating patterns that harm one’s health and capacity to operate. Yet, a variety of irregular eating behaviours that do not always fit the diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder are referred to as disordered eating.

  • What are 3 examples of disordered eating behaviors?

    There are many examples of disordered eating habits, but a few are as follows:

    • Dieting frequently and worrying about certain foods.
    • The embarrassment and remorse that comes from eating.
    • Making up for consuming junk food eaten by exercising, restricting one’s diet, eating, fasting, or purging.

    Working with a nutritionist for eating disorders might help you break disordered eating patterns before they develop into an eating disorder.

  • Does an eating disorder just go away?

    Unfortunately, eating disorders rarely disappear on their own. Eating disorders can seriously impede your ability to function, which means that they can quickly get out of hand and harm both your physical and mental health. Yet, receiving therapy for eating disorders from a nutritionist and assistance from qualified healthcare professionals can help you lead a healthy and joyful life.

  • What treatment can I get for an eating disorder?

    An assessment is typically the first step in eating disorder treatment. The National Eating Disorders Association offers a self-screening form that might help you decide whether you might benefit from an intervention if you are unsure about starting treatment.

    Furthermore, your healthcare practitioner in a treatment facility needs a skilled evaluation for an accurate diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, your case may require partial or total hospitalisation, an inpatient stay, or therapy. It is crucial to understand that every situation is unique, and that the course of treatment will change accordingly.

    Nutritional education is an essential component of effective eating disorder treatment. An individual will receive nutritional support from an eating disorder dietician as they work to normalise their relationship with food.

  • What is a vegan binge eating disorder?

    The recurring episodes of overeating (often quickly and to the point of discomfort), feeling out of control while doing so, and experiencing humiliation, distress, or guilt afterward are the hallmarks of binge eating disorder.

    For additional information, see my post Vegan Binge Eating Disorders: Causes & Techniques for Prevention.

  • Can veganism cause binge eating?

    Binge eating cannot be induced by veganism. There are numerous variables at play with eating disorders, including binge eating disorders. A person’s relationship with food, personality, genetic and biological makeup, and social milieu are some of these variables. There are many individual differences in the reasons. You can discover the cause of your binge eating and rebuild your relationship with food with the aid of a nutritionist who specializes in binge eating.

  • Can being vegan cause gut issues?

    Being high in fibre, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory foods including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes, a vegan diet can help your gut health. The high fibre content, however, can also result in gas, bloating, and stomach cramps. If you have these symptoms, it is advised that you speak with a vegan nutritionist to determine the underlying cause.
