You can reshape your relationship with food and your body.

Eating disorders and body image issues aren’t as simple as wanting to lose weight or look a certain way.

Also, people who struggle with body image and food may not present with the same symptoms or challenges.

Struggles with food and body image are often expressions of another underlying cause or co-morbid condition, such as depression, trauma, poor self-esteem, or anxiety.

Additionally, messages from social media, the entertainment industry, and peers can contribute to trying to achieve unrealistic body ideals.

As a result, you may find yourself:

  • Over-exercising
  • Restricting your food intake
  • Binge eating
  • Adopting rigid meals or eating rituals
  • Frequently checking your body for perceived flaws
  • Not wanting to eat in public

The struggle to achieve unrealistic body ideals and both eating and exercise habits can leave you feeling exhausted, inadequate, and dissatisfied with yourself and your body.

But you can move beyond your eating and body image issues and learn to love and accept yourself as you are. And you don’t have to do it alone.

Online therapy for eating disorders can help you develop a healthy relationship with yourself and your body.

So you feel positive about yourself, who you are, and live life the way you want.

“The quality I value most in a health care practitioner is their ability to listen. Zack has a unique talent to appreciate a person’s story with empathy and understanding. What he does for in the office goes a long way for you outside the office. Highly recommend him!!”
