Could I have an Eating Disorder? Women Over 50

in Interesting

Think anorexia, bulimia and bingeing only occur in teens and young adults? Think again…

This article really peaked my interest, as I fell into this category a couple of years ago; I'm over 50 and was diagnosed with Anorexia. Reported on AARP The Magazine’s website they included a 53-year-old mother of two who suffered from Bulimia Nervosa. Also, is the disturbing number of middle-aged adults suffering from life-threatening eating disorders.

5 Signs You May Have an Eating Disorder

1. You make yourself vomit because you feel uncomfortably full.

2. You worry that you have lost control over how much you eat.

3. You’ve lost more than 14 pounds in a three-month period.

4. You believe yourself to be fat when others think you are too thin.

5. Thinking about food dominates your life.
