What are the different types of eating disorders?

Common eating disorders include:

Anorexia nervosa

Anorexia is characterized by eating too few calories, starving yourself, and often being underweight. You may have a fear of gaining weight or think you weigh too much, despite being very thin.

Bulimia nervosa

Patients with bulimia nervosa often force themselves to throw up after eating, particularly after eating a lot of calories or large meals. Or, they exercise intensely after eating to burn off the calories consumed. People with bulimia might have normal body weights.

Binge eating disorder

Binge eating disorder occurs when you eat excessive amounts of food. You might not be able to control your eating habits, consuming calories even after you’re uncomfortably full. You may be overweight or obese due to binge eating disorder. 


People struggling with pica have cravings for and eat non-food items, such as paint chips, dirt, starch, paper, eggshells, coffee grounds, or other things that aren’t safe for consumption.

Your We Are Hope specialist diagnoses the eating disorder you may have after weighing you, completing a physical exam, and discussing your medical history, lifestyle habits, and symptoms. During a mental health evaluation, they ask questions about your thoughts, mood, emotions, and behaviors.
