How Much Have Your Learned About Disordered Eating?

Disordered eating can be a tricky concept - it's not officially classified by the DSM-VI but it's still a struggle that many college students face. Establishing a dialogue on the topic can encourage people to look at their own eating habits and determine if they truly have a good relationship with food or not. We pass on myths and negative messages about eating from generation to generation and it's about time for it to stop.

Between what we learn from our parents, the media, the internet and our peers, our concepts of nutrition and what is "healthy" are often incorrect. Dieting and food restriction have become altogether too normalized and it's time for the public perception of that to change and for there to be an emphasis on intuitive eating.
