BUFFALO JEWISH REVIEW
What is an eating disorder?
Learning to live well with an eating disorder can be a challenge. While the symptoms of eating disorders revolve around eating, they are more about coping with feelings than they are about food. Overcoming an eating disorder involves rediscovering who you are beyond your eating habits, weight, and body image. If you have an eating disorder, you may believe that body image is the key to being happy, or that if you can control what you eat, you’ll be able to control your life. But the truth is that happiness, confidence, and self-empowerment come from accepting yourself for who you truly are—and that’s only possible with recovery.
