Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Eating Disorders...
Nene Anderson's insight:

This was a good article to get to know what PTSD is and how it leads to eating disorders. When you have PTSD you can resist food to feel like you're in control or you keep eating (binge eating) to find comfort and stuff down negative feelings. This is just used to hide your feelings and emotions, to try to make you feel better. This is a good article to read to get to know what PTSD and what is has to do with eating disorders. I found it very new, informative, interesting because I learned about PTSD and what it has to do with eating disorders, the effects it has on the people with eating disorders, etc..

Eating Disorders and Obesity

Eating Disorders and Obesity | Eating Disorders | Scoop.it
Is there a connection between eating disorders and obesity?
Nene Anderson's insight:

Yes, there is as Chief Medical Officer and Medical Director of the Denver Eating Recovery Center Ovidio Bermudez, MD,. tells us. Eating disorders can lead to obesity because if you're eating a lot because you think you are too skinny then that can lead to too much weight or fat which is sometimes not good for the heart. If you don't eat at all you can be under weight meaning you become too skinny and your heart can possibly fail because its not getting enough nutrients, there's not enough fat/weight on your body, etc.. I read this article because I knew I could learn something from it.

All of these diseases come with heart problems because their either starving their self or they have to much fat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.. It is just better to eat normally.

Eating disorders and health concerns go hand in hand. Many may not think about the greater effects on their bodies but eating disorders can damage your health in the long run. For example, both anorexia and bulimia have major affects on your heart.

How Eating Disorders Differ in Men

How Eating Disorders Differ in Men | Eating Disorders | Scoop.it
Eating disorders primarily affect women.
Nene Anderson's insight:

This article is stating the differences in women but mostly talking about men and their eating disorders. Women do this to focus in just weight loss but with the men they want to gain muscle and lose fat. They do this to either get bigger in an area, gain muscle, or they just want to be in a different weight class and be more competitive. To do this they just exercise but women on the other hand use laxatives and vomiting. I found this article very interesting and informative.

Eating disorders usually affect many women but its not just women, but also men. They get really competitive to bulk up more and become more strict on their diet, strict in an unhealthy way. Becoming obsessive over bulking up, this may lead to using steroids and a form of bulimia.

New evidence suggests eating disorders may be sparked by stress.
Nene Anderson's insight:

Lauren Feldman found that stress makes them eat more. This is because they turn to food for comfort and to wipe away their feelings and emotions. Drazenka Floyd on the other hand say that they tend to eat less. As she said "We know eating disorders are impacted by emotions, stress and anxiety ... If someone is depressed or experiencing negative emotions, they are less likely to eat. Or with bulimia, it has the opposite effect.".. This article was very interesting and different because it had more than one person opinion or facts.

Eating Disorders & Exercise in Men

Eating Disorders & Exercise In Men. There is a misconception that eating disorders are exclusive to females. Although eating disorders are not as common among men, they still occur.
Nene Anderson's insight:

This article was basically just about anorexia. Anorexia is a disease in which a person fears of gaining weight so they starve their self or eat little.  When this happens you lose muscle weight, fat, fuel for energy, and much more. Your body begins to look undernourished and really skinny. You see yourself as fat all the time even if you aren't fat. I read this article because it looked like it could add some more facts and information to what i'm looking up.

Alcohol Abuse, Eating Disorders Related?
Focusdailynews
Is alcohol abuse closely related to eating disorders?

Via in-recovery.com
Nene Anderson's insight:

This article was about the many ways that Alcohol Abuse and Eating Disorders are related. As stated "folks with genetic alcohol dependence, they will likely also be genetically predisposed to eating disorders or for folks with known eating disorders the likelihood of alcohol related issues are also stronger genetically related". People who have these issues usually turn to laxatives, making their self vomit, etc.. These are very serious problems to treat,, if known with them you should turn to professional in health care that deal with these sort of things. I chose this article because it looked like a strong topic to do research on.
