On this website young people talk about their experiences of living with, and recovering from, an eating disorder. Their experiences include different degrees of disordered eating, anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, EDNOS (Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified), binge eating and ED-DMT1 (‘diabulimia’). We interviewed 10 men and 29 women for this project. Tell others about this site, download a printable flyer
This website includes people describing their experiences of behaviour and thought patterns at the time when they were ill. Some people might find reading about these experiences distressing and we have included trigger warnings where necessary. All the material on this website is intended to support a better understanding of why these unhelpful behaviours in eating disorders happen, how to get help for them and to support genuine recovery from eating disorders. The site does not contain any triggering visual material, mention of weights, BMIs or calorie amounts.
