    I've not suffered from an eating disorder and I don't think I ever will because I have a simple but positive philosophy about the human body. With the exceptions of the extremes (obesity and malnutrition), I think peoples should be encouraged to love and accept their own bodies, and believe in their own beauty. We don't all need to look like the Hollywood standard.

    I have to maintain some discipline about my weight since I am a swimmer. So I can't exactly pig out and consume large quantities of fast food, chocolate & ice-cream. However, I wouldn't say that I suffer from an ED. I see a nutritionist who weighs me and gives me advice on how to eat healthy and balance my diet. Starving yourself or purging as an athlete/performer is not a good idea and not worth it. It only works in the short term, in the long run it puts a strain on the body and one becomes too weak to perform. There is a fine line between eating discipline and an ED, unfortunately too many girls my age step over that line... the photoshopped beauty image and the fact that trainers are pushing for a perfect image doesn't really help either...

    Not an ED per se, although I became obsessive about my weight as a teenager. The ideal just like today ultra thin, and a lot of girls my age obsessed about dieting. Fortunately, I stopped before it developed into something more serious, like anorexia. The wake up call was when I started losing my periods and my hair became thin and brittle. Another girl I knew developed a different kind of ED, orthorexia, something that plagues the modern world: an ED characterised by an excessive preoccupation with "healthy" or "clean eating". Her diet ended up consisting of mostly smoothies, green salads, "superpowder" supplements and the like. Quite deceitful and easy to fall into, unfortunately.

    I voted yes to three options.

    Anorexia

    Bulimia

    Compulsive overeating

    I don't know what "ED-nos" is.

    ED-nos is short for eating disorder not otherwise specified and includes EDs that don't meet the typical diagnostic criteria for anorexia, bulimia or compulsive eating disorder. It also includes atypical forms of the formerly specified. For example, an anorexic whose weight still falls in the normal range, an anorexic without irregular periods, someone who purges but doesn't binge, someone who combines anorexia with bulimia, chewers and spitters, night eaters, etc.

    Same with me. I don't like extremes, so I wouldn't allow myself to become so far down the line that I'm either bone skinny or morbidly obese. Although I've seen eating disorders in action in my family (my sister-in-law, wrote about it earlier in this thread). In the meantime she's gotten cured and had a baby, but had to go to therapy especially during and after the pregnancy, when she obsessed about getting fat.

    I like food but I don't have an obsessive relationship with it. Food is essential and can be pleasurable but not to the point you become a degenerate hedonist who resorts to it for comfort. I do like my chocolate and icecream during that time of the month, but they don't replace the company of my husband or children.
