As food is not inherently good or bad, life is not conveniently black or white. Similarly, eating disorders range in severity and behavior. It is hard to pinpoint the moment when a diet turns into something compulsive, or when mindless snacking becomes a routine prescription for boredom. Eating disordered thinking happens across a spectrum from emotional and stress eating to chronic eating disorders. Whether or not you have a ‘diagnosable’ eating disorder is secondary. The fact that your thoughts and behaviors are interfering with your opportunity to have a fulfilling life is foremost.
