How Eating Disorders Develop in Women
The definition of an eating disorder is the over-consumption or under-consumption of food in extreme fashion. Eating disorders are very common, especially in young women. They are often the cause of serious physical and psychological health issues. Oftentimes people with eating disorders begin by eating less or with more moderation, and a certain event or course of events causes their eating irregularity to become extreme. The sufferer then loses control and an eating disorder will often manifest itself.

Most eating disorders are developed in adolescence or when a person is in their younger adult years. However, it’s also possible to develop an eating disorder at a younger or older age. Women account for the vast majority of people with eating disorders. Much like other psychological issues, eating disorders can result in secondary psychiatric or biological disorders including substance abuse, depression or anxiety.
