Eating disorders can sometimes start with a person’s desire to lose weight that somehow, spirals out of control,and picking up on the warning signs is often not easy.

Binge eating is actually one of the most common eating disorders and one of the most difficult to spot. Binge eaters may begin to withdraw socially or avoid family members. Anorexics and bulimics may do the same, and when it comes to getting help, typically, they won’t ask for it.

So, if you think someone in your family may be battling an eating disorder, taking them to their family physician is a good place to start.
