People who binge eat generally hate the way they look and have poor body image. They always feel that they should be eating less even if they can’t always do something about it. Horrible feelings of fatness means that even when they do eat they can’t enjoy it properly. Poor body image has many effects, from avoiding social situations, not taking care of yourself and not being able to enjoy a holiday. Compulsive eaters believe themselves to be fat even when they are not and they feel instantly fat after eating foods which are considered forbidden.
Orthorexia has no universal menu. Food ideologies come in every variety imaginable, can conflict greatly with one another, and are all susceptible to orthorexia. In general, orthorexics tend to fixate on certain foods or ingredients as bad or impure. As more and more Americans embrace alternative eating practices, it can be difficult to draw a line between a sensitive eater and an orthorexic. According to Dr. Bratman, however, orthorexics display the three hallmarks of eating disorders : social isolation, cycling through emotional extremes, and obsession.
The first ever systematic description of global disability arising in youth, published in 2011, found that among 10- to 24-year-olds nearly half of all disability (current and as estimated to continue) was due to mental and neurological conditions, including substance use disorders and conditions involving self-harm . Second to this were accidental injuries (mainly traffic collisions) accounting for 12 percent of disability, followed by communicable diseases at 10 percent. The disorders associated with most disability in high income countries were unipolar major depression (20%) and alcohol use disorder (11%). In the eastern Mediterranean region it was unipolar major depression (12%) and schizophrenia (7%), and in Africa it was unipolar major depression (7%) and bipolar disorder (5%).
