How do I know if I have an eating disorder? 7 Behaviors and 4 Signs from your San Jose Eating Disorder Therapist.
There are 7 common behaviors and 4 common psychological-emotional signs that are tell-tale clues of disordered eating.
If you are able to spot these signs in your self or a loved one, the key is to not judge yourself or speak as though this is a terrible problem.
Paradoxically, we are less likely to seek or accept help if we see ourselves facing a terrible problem.
Instead what you want to do is normalize.
Say to yourself or loved one that many people have this disorder and that we live in a culture that promotes disordered eating habits.
It doesn’t mean you screwed up or that you’re a bad parent.
It doesn’t mean things are hopeless either.

You or your loved one can too.
