Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, are characterised by severe disturbances in an individual’s eating habits, and an obsession with weight and body shape. A person with an eating disorder typically becomes preoccupied with controlling their weight, which can lead them to make unhealthy choices about food. This can have an extremely detrimental effect on their physical and psychological wellbeing, and can even be fatal.
