Eating Disorders Recovery

Nutrition Therapy plays an important role in the multidisciplinary approach to combat EDs
  • Eating Disorders are a range of psychological disorders characterised by disturbed eating habits.
  • One is diagnosed to have an Eating disorder by a metal health professional if he/she meets certain criteria described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
  • Examples of common EDs are Anorexia Nervosa; Binge Eating Disorder (BED); Bulemia Nervosa; Otherwise Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED); Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID) etc.
  • Other serious food and behaviour concerns: Orthorexia (obsession with eating “healthy”), Compulsive Exercising, Diabulemia etc.
  • Once diagnosed, the client requires a team of healthcare professionals, including an ED sensitised nutritionist for collaborative care and treatment.

EDs aren't just "diets gone wrong"
  • An ED is an extremely serious mental illness
  • If untreated it could cause:
    • severe electrolyte imbalances ​
    • intestinal distress
    • weight flunctuations
    • Severe protein energy malnutrition
    • brain damage, multi-organ failure etc.

Eating Disorders Recovery
Specialised nutrition management required for every step of recovery
  • Every Eating Disorder needs to be managed in its own unique way.
  • At The Nutrition Project we recognise the seriousness of EDs as well as the role of a nutritionist to facilitate progress.
  • We employ a nutrition-focused evidence-based CBT-E approach as directed by the ED unit at University of Oxford (CREDO).

EDs don't have a look. You do not have to wait until you look a certain way, or feel “sick enough” before reaching out for help
