This doesn’t mean the people who are advertising foods that are bad for your health with false facts aren’t apart of it but they are only a piece of the problem. By teaching our generation about moderation and to be conscious of our eating choices is a way to get this “epidemic” fixed.
This is bound to reduce their depression (even eliminate it altogether as a constant feature of their mental life). This is bound to ameliorate other facets of their personality disorders. Here is the chain: controlling eating disorders=controlling my life=I am worthy, I have self-confidence, self esteem and self-worth=I have a challenge, an interest, an enemy to subjugate=I am strong=I can socialize=I feel better (I am a success) etc. When a patient has a personality disorder and an eating disorder, I see no point in concentrating at first on anything but his eating disorder. Personality Disorders are intricate and intractable.
Even though the United States has over 10 million people suffering from an eating disorder, only about 10% are actually diagnosed and receive proper treatment. The eating disorders that will be mentioned bellow, are extremely complex because of the fact that these disorders not only affect the mental health of the patient, but also the immune, digestive, skeletal and cardiovascular systems. There are three main types of eating disorders, and in this paper I will explain what they are and how they affect an individual. The first and most common is called binge eating disorder. This is when an individual will eat excessive amounts of food in a limited time without purging afterwards.
In today's modern society we live in an image conscious culture, that encourage individuals to improve their image and this particularly goes towards women. Eating disorder is any of a range of psychological disorders characterized by abnormal or disturbed eating habits like anorexia nervosa could be an example. Even though countless individuals would profit from eating a bit less then what we consume and staying in shape more often in order to improve our health and fitness, simply watching what you eat is really not consider an eating disorder. Eating disorders are hypothetically life-threatening illnesses which are instantaneously mental and physical in nature. They are categorized by a range of unusual and particularly harmful eating habits of individuals that are supplemented and motivated by unhealthy beliefs, insights, and outlooks concerning eating, weight, and body shape.
Eating disorders are a huge deal, not just in the United States but everywhere around the world. Many symptoms of eating disorders do not show but there are some pretty obvious ones. If anyone is seen with any kind of eating disorder symptoms they must each help immediately. Eating disorders can get out of hand quickly and before someone knows it, they will be dealing with health deterioration and possibly on the verge of death. The world needs to get out their and help the people suffering with eating disorders, help them realize that they are perfect just the way they are.
Demographic, stress and general health were addressed in the study however because of other factors self-esteem, depression and weight could have also been accessed. Future research should focus on creating a measure that will access other factors such as depression and self-esteem which will help researchers gain better understanding of factors that can affect eating disorders. In addition focus on having a population that is more gender equal and larger will also be beneficial in obtaining better quality results. Conclusion The aim of this study was to determine how stress effects disordered eating based on gender. From the results we concluded that there was not significance between males and females and how much food they consume when stressed.
According to a case study published in International Journal of Eating Disorders, “individuals with eating disorders use symptoms such as restrictive eating and binge/purge behaviors to experience temporary relief from the feeling of shame” (717). Their research proves how shame plays a direct role with eating pathology. When these individuals received help, their eating disorders were more controlled. These individuals feel as though they have nothing else to turn to. If this shame and stigma were to be removed from their condition, they would feel like it is easier for them to get help.
These results and those of other studies indicate that a BMI of 22.5–24.99 kg/m2, not the broad “overweight” category of 25–29.99 kg/m2, was associated with the most favorable mortality risk because of bad eating habits” (Joshy). Essentially meaning, that mortality’s among people who weigh 25-29.99 kg coexist with their eating habits among fast food chains leading to overweight deaths. While a journalist for the American Journal of Public Health states, “Our findings are consistent with these studies for obesity with all-cause mortality (grades II and III) and CVD-specific mortality (rega... ... middle of paper ... ...up to 14% among youths. On average, SSB consumption contributes 295 kilocalories per day among those who drink at least 1 SSB per day29 and contributes 33% of the added sugars in our diet” (Kass). While an American Health journalist says, “A 2012 national survey showed that 62% of Americans somewhat or strongly opposed SSB taxes, with 37% of fast food chains strongly opposed… Cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers are strongly associated with obesity, which accounted for an estimated $147 billion in national medical spending in 2008, Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) are gaining policy attention as a result of reported links between their consumption and weight gain, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes.
Once more people choose to live a happy and healthful life, the decrease of obesity will begin to show. The solution to solving the issue of obesity in America can be possible by: eating healthier foods, getting proper exercise, and setting boundaries on what fast-food industries can sell to customers. People need to get up and get moving for the problem of obesity and its trail of nasty effects will consume the healthy way of life everyone knows today.
