Eating Disorders by Understanding the Problems
This page is dedicated to those who deal with issues
of size, body shape and self-worth. If you feel as though the span
of your hips and the size of your clothes outweigh the content of
your thoughts and the value of your character, I offer you this
homepage as a token of friendship and personal understanding. If
you're tired of being told that happiness, sexiness and usefulness
expire after size 14, then don't just get mad . . . Get Fed-up!

(Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified) or "Sub-Clinical" eating
disorders. While we

our primary interest is in shedding light on the staggering number
of people who struggle with non-extreme types of disordered eating,
such as chronic dieting, exercise obsessions and compulsive over
Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who are willing
to recover from the disease of food addiction. Sharing our
experience, strength, and hope with others allows us to recover from
this disease, ONE DAY AT A TIME.
FAA program is based on the belief that food addiction is a
bio-chemical disease. By following a food plan devoid of all
addictive substances, we can recover. These substances include
sugar, flour, and wheat in all their forms. They also include fats
and any other high-carbohydrate, refined, processed foods that cause
us problems individually.
primary purpose is to stay abstinent and to help other food addicts
achieve abstinence. We invite you to join us on the road to recovery
and suggest you attend six meetings before you decide you don't need
our help. You need to know that withdrawal is a necessary part of
recovery. We can get better if we continue to follow our food plan,
work the tools of the program, and ask for help!
The incidence of binge/compulsive eating is prevalent in our
culture. The physical consequences may include high blood pressure,
elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, stress on the pancreas
(secondary diabetes), dental and digestive problems. The
psychological features include depression, anxiety and anger; fear;
low self-esteem; hypersensitivity to criticism and approval;
powerlessness; numbness; social preoccupation with food, weight, and
appearance; social withdrawal and isolation. Secrecy is the result
of the shame and guilt experienced. The Binge/Compulsive Eating
Individual Program reduces the shame, guilt and isolation, enhancing

workshop explores taste, creating an awareness of the interplay of

InnerSolutions is a counseling service dedicated to helping people heal from food, weight and body issues.
At InnerSolutions, we base our philosophy on our personal
experiences of overcoming weight problems and the knowledge that
diets do not work. Diets promote deprivation and as a result they
provoke eating binges. Diets are built on the assumption that people
cannot trust their own bodies to tell them what to eat and therefore
need to have someone else prescribe, and sometimes provide, their
food for them.

Acceptance Association (ISAA) is to promote SIZE ACCEPTANCE and

form of size discrimination and bigotry--that against fat children
and adults; ISAA will strive to defend the human rights of members
affected by other forms of size discrimination as well.

which places people at a disadvantage simply because of their size.
ISAA defines SIZE ACCEPTANCE as acceptance of self and others
without regard to weight or body size.

Eating Disorder Information Centre (Canada)
The National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) is a
Toronto-based, non-profit organization, established in 1985 to provide
information and resources on eating disorders and weight
preoccupation. NEDIC began as a result of the concerted efforts of a
group of health-care providers. Based on a national needs-assessment
undertaken in 1983 by the Health League of Canada, a proposal was made
for initial funding of an information centre which would focus on
eating disorders and socio-cultural factors influencing the
health-related behaviour of women.
NEDIC has a
non-dieting, client-centered, feminist philosophy. In essence, this
means that NEDIC workers will not refer clients to diet centers or
services which advocate restrictive eating patterns as a solution to
food and weight preoccupation or other problems. The philosophy held
by NEDIC is that dieting is intrinsically harmful to the individual in
that, in addition to potential physiological harm, it perpetuates the
illusory cultural notion that imposing control over one's body-size
will create control and efficacy in one's life.NEDIC promotes healthy
lifestyles, which includes both healthy eating and appropriate,
enjoyable exercise. Being client-centered dictates that staff strive
to provide all available information and guidance regarding available
services, treatment modalities, and alternatives in a manner which
empowers the client to make informed choices. The feminist philosophy
of NEDIC includes the unequivocal belief in the equal value of all
human beings and their right to equivalent civil rights. This position
underpins the methodical attempts that NEDIC makes to illuminate the
socio-cultural aspects of eating problems. An additional aspect of
this is to raise awareness of fat-prejudice and the myths and
stereotypes which perpetuate irrational and damaging responses for all
persons, thin or fat. It also informs the work that NEDIC staff do to
locate women's and men's food and weight issues within the contexts of
their lives rather than as individual pathologies.
Eating Disorder Organization
The National Eating Disorders Association came
into being in 2001, when Eating Disorders Awareness & Prevention (EDAP)
joined forces with the American Anorexia Bulimia Association (AABA) to
create the largest eating disorders prevention and advocacy
organization in the world. The merger was the most recent in a series
of alliances that has also included the National Eating Disorder
Organization (NEDO) and Anorexia Nervosa & Related Disorders (ANRED).
Each organization has contributed years of valuable experience, unique
programming, and the commitment of the field’s most renowned
clinicians, educators and researchers to create a unified force in the
fight against eating disorders.
Eating Disorder Screening Program
Free & anonymous program offering the opportunity to get
information, take a written self test, meet with a health
professional & get a referral for further evaluation.
The National Eating Disorders Screening Program
materials focus on the three main types of eating disorders – anorexia
nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. The goal of the
program is to both raise the level of awareness about eating disorders
and to encourage people who may be suffering from eating disorders to
seek further help and treatment. Participating sites are encouraged to
network with community groups and other internal departments, thereby
creating liaisons which can continue to be utilized throughout the
year. In this way, NEDSP serves as a catalyst for ongoing outreach
about eating disorders and other illnesses.
New Realities Eating Disorders Recovery Centre is a centre for
recovery from eating disorders including binge eating, compulsive
overeating, bulimia and anorexia. At the centre we are interested in
