Eating Disorder Information Directory

Updated on March 12, 2011

Eating disorders are becoming ever more prevalent, but remain a taboo subject in most circles.  It can be hard to find accurate, relevant information when you or someone you love is suffering from an eating disorder.  Gathering from both my studies in psychology and my personal struggle, I've put together some resources below, including pieces on often-overlooked disorders like EDNOS and Night Eating Syndrome, as well as the more commonly known diseases of anorexia and bulimia.

If you are looking for information on something in particular and don't see it here, let me a comment or contact me through my profile, and I will address it in a later piece.

      I'd like to know what happens to most anorexics years after they quit. I did it in the 50's and 60's. I have never felt hungry in my life and only eat because I am diabetic. I had very abnormal weight gain when I quit smoking and have been obese since I quit smoking in 1980. I gained the weight not because I was eating but because I stopped eating for fear of gaining. Any studies on this?

      The most effective and long-lasting treatment for an eating disorder is some form of psychotherapy or counseling, coupled with careful attention to medical and nutritional needs. Ideally, this treatment should be tailored to the individual and will vary according to both the severity of the disorder and the patient's individual problems, needs, and strengths.
