Ohio Psychological Association Partners with Columbus State Community College for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week
Date:3/2/2013

f you think a loved one may have an eating disorder, Dr. Lewis says to look for signs, including:
  •     Drastic weight loss.
  •     Preoccupation with counting calories.
  •     The need to weigh yourself several times a day.
  •     Excessive exercise.
  •     Binge eating or purging.
  •     Food rituals, like taking tiny bites, skipping food groups or re-arranging food on the plate.
  •     Avoiding meals or only wanting to eat alone.
  •     Taking laxatives or diuretics.
  •     Smoking to curb appetite.
  •     Persistent view of yourself as fat that worsens despite weight loss.

OPA and NEDA encourage individuals to get the conversation started in every community by pledging to do just one thing to raise awareness and provide critical information on eating disorders and related issues.
