  • I don't have an eating disorder, I like my food too much! I could never starve myself.

  • I have food Issues, not so much a disorder. it started when I was around 16 probably.. it was not for any "reason" I was always thin I guess and that's when I started drinking and gained "beer weight" and that's when I started throwing up when I ate.. not ALL the time and not all of the food of the day or anything.. but I did/do binge eat / night eat and still struggle with this battle.I am 32 now. it totally affected my self esteem.. no parental issues, had a great childhood - just started self destructing due to my genetic disposition of depression from a chemical imbalance...

  • I eat too much, especially too much of the bad kinds of foods like sweets. I consider it to be like an eating disorder because it's an emotional thing for me. I think my eating habits are linked to depression. There were issues in my family growing up, particularly abuse. I don't have any sexual issues. There have been issues in my marriage that have contributed to my depression and over eating. I don't think mine has anything to do with models or clothing. But then maybe most people wouldn't consider overeating as an eating disorder.

  • I have an eating disorder. I'm an over-eater. I can try to put the blame off on any number of people or things I want but, the fact still remains that it's MY hand going to MY mouth.

  • I do not have a eating disorder. I know my limit when it comes to eating food.

  • I have an eating disorder. I don't receive any help for it, but it just stems from my irrational fear of being fat. I am not any where near fat, nor have I ever been fat, not even when I was pregnant. I exercise a ton, I do not eat a whole lot (900 calories a day), if I ever go over, I throw up. It do not happen often, maybe once or twice a month, but it happens. I do not blame anyone or anything for my choice

  • No, I like food, but I also like fitting into my pants.
