Self-Assessment

If you are wondering if you or someone you know might be suffering from an eating disorder, consider the following.

Do I:

? Obsess about food or meals
? Pre-occupy myself with negative perceptions of body image
? Avoid eating near others
? Eat less than most people or overeat impulsively at times
? Count calories or monitor portion sizes excessively
? Compensate for eating by 'purging' (e.g., vomiting, laxatives, diets or diet pills, overexercising)
? Have mood swings or get irritated easily
? Feel judged or monitored by others
? Lose or gain significant amounts of weight frequently
? Use food or lack of food to cope or numb out emotions

If you answered 'yes' to three or more of the above questions, you may have an unhealthy eating issue or eating disorder.
