Myth - Eating disorders are just dieting that has gone too far


While dieting may be a behavior associated with some eating disorders, these disorders are complex mental health conditions with underlying psychological, physiological, and environmental factors. They involve disturbances in eating behaviors, body image perception, and often coexist with other mental health issues. Eating disorders are serious illnesses that require professional treatment and support, and they should not be trivialized or dismissed as extreme forms of dieting. #EatingDisordersAwarenessWeek
