Teenage Eating Disorders In Understandable Terms
I Want To Be Like HER!!!
disorders are eating disorders found commonly among young people of ages 13-19years. At this age we tend to be impressionable and many a time want to be like
our peers or some celebrity.
More teens get self conscious as they are suddenly aware of their
body shapes and sizes.
If you are like me, as a teenager, you want to be like mum…
Or like dad….
Or you just want to be opposite of them…
If mum is battling with weight problems,
Then you want to be forever thin.Miss World From Miss Campus!
As a student, you wish you could be nominated
"Miss High School"
"Mr. High School"
These titles are certainly
great to bear.
Only, as long as they don't
demand a price too costly.I Want The Gold Medal
The temptation to compete
favorably at some sports or events in school could lure teenagers into teenage eating disorders.
Teenagers have been found victims of Anorexia.
Here, they avoid eating, or at best eat very little, all in a bid to keep lean and shapely.
The danger is, this is started innocently.
Then, there's a snap point where the victim loses appetite for food
and is happy about it.
A trim figure is achieved at the expense of health.

Teenagers also are victims of Bulimia Nervosa.
Here, they eat and vomit.
Or eat and take self-prescribed laxative to get a purge. This
is in order to get rid of already consumed foods.
Another one is Binge.
It is a form of continuous eating with brief breaks.
Like having an insatiable appetite.
The result is usually overweight for some victims, and
health breakdown for others.
Another form of this is Binge drinking.
The teenage victim drinks and drinks to get drunk.
It may be in order to celebrate or to escape taking responsibility.
There's also the unwanted problem of academic
underachievement for teen victims of these disorders.
