Each Eating Disorder (ED) treats food differently. The person with an ED is bound to its approach to dealing with stress, anxiety, poor self image, etc. Food can become a part of a coping mechanism or a nemesis that the body may at times still crave, but the mind now identifies as a “poison” that must be avoided. The view that food is a source of energy and nutrition that al- lows us to grow, function and think is now gone. The concept of “appropriate portions” is distorted.
