Eating disorder vs. Disordered eating

If individuals don't fit the clinical description of an eating disorder, they may be wrapped up in disordered eating. Disordered eating means that a person's attitudes about food, weight and body size and shape may be causing them to have very strict eating and exercise habits that jeopardize their health, happiness and safety.

Disordered eating may begin as a way to lose a few pounds or get in shape, but these behaviors can quickly spin out of control, can become obsessions and may even become a full-blown eating disorder.
