There are many types of eating disorders but the most prevalent ones are know to be anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder (BED). Nutritional nervosa, which is characterised by obsessing over nutrition also seems to be gaining importance with the rise of clean eating. As with any other disorder, a person does not need to be officially diagnosed with an eating disorder for them to be suffering from it’s symptoms. One may present with traits of an eating disorder but not meet official diagnostic criteria of one. Apart from the behaviour related directly to the condition itself, eating disorders are often accompanied by anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive traits.
