What Equip treatment looks like for real patients
Kira is a 25-year-old woman with Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder (OSFED). She struggled with restricting, bingeing, and purging, but didn’t clinically fit into the more well-known eating disorder diagnoses. 
Stuck in a perfectionism cycleKira exercised compulsively every day. She also had very rigid rules about how much she should be eating, and was hard on herself when those rules weren’t met. This sometimes triggered a cycle of binge-eating, followed by purging, restricting, or excessive exercise.  
12 million
women in the US are affected by OSFED
Determined to make a changeKira was extremely motivated to stop bingeing when she signed up for Equip. She asked her mom to be involved, and the two committed to a learning process together. 
Breaking a larger pattern
While Kira was ready to overcome her binge-eating, she initially had a hard time recognizing that her restrictive diet and overexercising were contributing factors. She initially struggled to change her habits, and would fall back into bingeing whenever she felt she had failed. 
Making strides
With time and the support of her mom and Equip care team, Kira started to apply new skills and started to see a reduction of bingeing, which helped build up her self-confidence.
Living differently
Now Kira not only understands the cycle she was caught in, but also feels empowered to turn to the skills she has mastered to prevent it. She has cut back on her rigorous exercise routine and now enjoys new, joyful forms of movement and meditation.
