Is it an eating disorder?
If you’re concerned that you or a loved one may be struggling with an eating disorder, this assessment is a good place to start. If you’ve observed several of the behaviors below, we recommend a professional diagnosis.
  • Starting a new diet, including an interest in “healthy,” “clean,” “low-carb,” or other rule-based eating approaches
  • Avoiding certain food groups, either for health/diet reasons or due to taste/texture preference
  • Absence during family meals, or avoiding situations that include eating in a group
  • Inflexibility about what, when, or how much to eat
  • Fixation on food’s calorie content
  • Visiting the bathroom or showering immediately after meals
  • A new interest in cooking without eating the food
  • Rigidity around certain ingredients, brands, food preparations, or utensils
  • A longer list of foods they will not eat than they will eat
  • A long history of “picky” eating that has gotten worse over time
  • Struggling to eat or eat enough food
  • Frequent stomach pain or other gastrointestinal complaints
