The Key to a Healthy Relationship with Food in Burleson TX

Healthy Relationship with Food in Burleson, TX

eating disorder counseling burlesonFood — it’s central to our very being. It’s a topic of casual conversation and how we pass time with friends and family. Unfortunately, food can also bring feelings of shame and anxiety for many people. If you or a loved one are constantly yo-yo dieting, tightly controlling what you eat or engaging in otherwise unhealthy behavior related to food, you should know that counseling for eating disorders in Burleson can help you reframe your relationship with food so you can reclaim your healthy lifestyle once again.

Why Do Eating Disorders Develop?

The simple truth about eating disorders is this: it’s really not about the food. Counseling is a way to address the underlying issues that cause you to rely on food as a source of comfort, control or self-validation. And with the best counseling, this growth is contained in a safe, non-judgmental environment that helps you learn how to gain control and have a healthy relationship with food.

Recognizing an Eating Disorder

A brief description of a few of the most common eating disorders is detailed below. If you suspect that you or someone you love are suffering from one of these or another type of disordered eating, please seek help as soon as possible.

  • Anorexia nervosa: The condition in which food intake is severely limited, often to the point of starvation.
  • Bulimia nervosa: A cycle of binging and purging (forced vomiting).
  • Binge Eating Disorder: When a person eats a large amount of food in a short period of time and does not purge afterward.

While these conditions have specific criteria for diagnosis, you don’t have to have every symptom to benefit from counseling for eating disorders. Whatever it is that’s causing your issues with food, we can work on the underlying issues to help you enjoy life once again.
