Article Revival: Healthy Dieting vs Disordered Eating - February 26th 2019, 01:36 PM

Healthy Dieting vs Disordered Eating



This article discusses the fact that there is a fine line between healthy dieting and disordered eating. This article discusses some of the ways to recognize if you are partaking in healthy dieting or disordered eating. If you are able to distinguish between healthy dieting and disordered eating it can help you determine if you might need to seek help with disordered eating. It's not always easy to know when you need the help but this article might be a great starting place.

I think that there were a lot of helpful things in this article and I think I would have benefited from reading it back when I was coming to terms with my own issues with eating. It took years for me to acknowledge that I had an eating disorder and the first step to recognizing it was acknowledging that some of my eating habits were disordered. It took a while after that for me to acknowledge that I did, in fact, have an eating disorder but I will always acknowledge that identifying my own disordered eating habits is one of the things that helped me get to a place where I could accept treatment.

Did you find this article helpful?

Do you or someone you know struggle with eating, or have you struggled with it in the past?

Have you used any helpful resources that you think might help others?

Is there anything you would like to see added to the article?

I follow a few people on instagram that are really helpful including Pixie Turner and Laura Thomas, they are nondiet nutritionists who regularly write stuff that's very helpful. Also I listen to the Love Food podcast.

I also agree that there's a really fine line between healthy eating and disordered eating -- sometimes people use "healthy" eating or even vegan diets and the likes to mask their eating disorder, but because it's so normalized not to eat dairy or whatever, its' easy to get away with with. I can also speak from experience that it is really hard to move into a healthy relationship with food if you're still using "heathy eating" as a crutch; like it's hard to go out to a restaurant without feeling guilty even if it's only once or twice a month when you're "supposed" to be eating healthy, we're not "supposed" to be doing anything; no harm will come to me if I eat a big bowl of cheesy pasta and dessert in a restaurant once a month and I don't feel like my fixation on healthy eating was good for my recovery from bulimia, which is why I love people like Pixie Turner because people like her have helped me remove some of the guilt from having that restaurant food or that cupcake while still still consuming mostly healthy food.

I thought the article was good and so far, I seem to be within the healthy parameters. I have read about people who struggle with disordered eating and can't imagine what it's like, though I can imagine how can sometimes be easy to slip into unhealthy attitudes.

This I agree with a lot. Such 'diets' and fads can really seem to blur the lines between healthy and disordered eating.
