Today’s society has changed a lot. Nowadays physical appearance is very important in one’s mind. Because of that people are starting more and more to give a lot of attention to dieting, food and calories. Normal behavior is rather difficult to tell apart from problems that may escalate in life threatening situations. People that have eating disorders will most certainly develop some ‘ symptoms’ . |
The early stages of any eating disorders are very hard to see and define. It is still unknown when a dieting becomes hazardous for people. The same thing applies in the case of weight lose: what is the line that separates normal weight loss from pathological situations. Preventing anorexia and bulimia is actually very hard considering that they are not that visible in a person until it has reached a very advanced stage. Still, as it is with all other diseases and illnesses, the sooner the problem is discovered and treated the better it is for the patient to properly recover and live the problems behind. If the situation is left untreated, solving the problem afterwards may prove to be very hard and of long affect.
There are a lot of signs that can show if someone is starting to develop a serious health problem. If a person begins skipping meals, taking only the smallest of portions, not eating in front of other people than assertive action must be taken. Developing strange ritualistic ways of eating and mixing strange food combinations are also great in indicators that something is wrong with the particular person. One of the weirdest thing that a person with an eating disorder can do is actually chew the food but spit it out right before swallowing. Another strange act that an anorexic will do is buy and cook food for the entire family, but will later on refuse to eat the food. Again, a very common sign of anorexia is the excuse to not to eat. Patients will most certainly always say that they are not hungry ore give nay other excuses just not to eat.
There are many more signs that can tell if a person is starting to develop an eating disorder. If a person becomes disgusted with foods that where an actual favorite, starts eating only a few ‘safe’ foods, becomes vegetarian but still not eat the necessary quantities of fats, oils and other vegetables that are a must in a vegetarian diet, certain actions must be taken in order to prevent the state of mind and health of the person in question. Boasting around about healthy foods and choosing to eat only low-fat food products and vegetables, are again clear indicators that something is wrong with that particular person.
Tricking other people in to thinking that there is nothing wrong with them by leaving signs that suggest that they have eaten is also a very common thing to do by anorexic people. The truth is that anorexic people will do almost anything to reach the weight that for them is perfect.
