Many people have gone on diets or tried to lose weight. However, for those with eating disorders, weight loss efforts have severe consequences. They lose weight by fasting, purging and/or exercising excessively. They become so preoccupied with their body image and eating habits that they may develop serious health problems, or even die.
Although eating disorders are more common in females, it can also happen to males, and it usually starts during adolescence or early adult life.
There are two main types of eating disorders: Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa.
