Road to Recovery from Eating Disorders

Road to Recovery from Eating Disorders | Eating disorder | Scoop.it
By JESSICA BAKER Published: May 30, 2014 A new research study, which is a collaboration between the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders, Duke University, and Principal Investigator Dr. An...
Catherine chng's insight:

It mentioned the new research study that examines the recovery process of people suffering from eating disorders, and the importance of focusing on the psychological component rather than physical. There are many misconceptions people have about eating disorder (ED) where they often just linked it to anorexia. Individuals suffering from ED faces problem dealing with their physical (i.e. weight) and psychological (i.e. body and their image, food, eating) aspects. 


I feel that Intuitive Eating (IE) can be used as a way to promote full recovery as IE tackles on the psychological aspects about food and eating. Individuals who suffer from ED can be guided through how to engage in IE in order to permit themselves to take in food through our body's innate hunger cues.

Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works – Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch

Intuitive Eating: A Revolutionary Program that Works – Evelyn Tribole & Elyse Resch | Eating disorder | Scoop.it

IntuBy MARGARET SALA Published: 18 July 2014 In our society, the pursuit of finding the perfect diet (whether to achieve thinness or for health reasons) never seems to end. From low fat to paleo to glu...

Catherine chng's insight:

Intuitive Eating (IE) is a book that advocates rejecting the dieting mentality, which is commonly observed in our society now. The main idea of IE is to allow us to rely on our body's innate hunger and satiety cues to determine when, how much to eat and what we want to eat.

 

As observed, there is a vast number of dieting programs, tips and companies around in an attempt to help people achieve their desire weight. As mentioned in the article, constant dieting can erode our natural instinct of hunger cues which is bad for our body in the long run. When we start "controlling" or force our body about what to and what not to consume (dieting), we are spoiling our body system. For example; you might tend to consume more carbohydrate (rice/bread etc) because your body is receiving the signals that you need more energy) However, if you try to limit this intake forcefully, in the long run your body "loses" that ability. This is essential to help people with eating disorders rebuild a healthy body image and make peace with food.

Catherine chng's insight:

This articles illustrate many examples from our daily life about how the society view individuals by their weight. People who are bigger in size has the tendency to be portrayed in the negative light such as lazy while people who are thin are more likely to be represented in a positive way. It is implying that media is the main culprit through its examples. 

 

I can strongly relate to this article as it contextualise the examples in a way that we can easily observe in our society, which I am guilty of as well. This is a dangerous phenomenon as we should not allow media to dictate our value based on the "ideal" size we should have.
