More than 10 million females and one million males suffer from eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder. Eating disorders frequently appear during the teen years or young adulthood but may also develop during childhood or later in life. Sufferers often exhibit warning signs and symptoms such as obsessions with food, weight and appearance. These obsessions can be strong enough to disrupt an individual’s daily activities, relationships and physical health.
