Eating disorders are not a choice. No one chooses to lose all of their friends, because they cannot go anywhere that there will be food. — Jennifer Rollin MSW, LCSW-C
Will an online therapist really help you when it comes to healthy eating? For some, they don’t realize how important it is to eat healthily and how sometimes they need a little extra push to move away from those bad things. You mightn’t think there are any problems with your eating or how you see food but there might just be a few concerns to think about. Giving up fatty foods and foods with high sugar content isn’t easy because they’re addictive in a sense and sometimes you need help to overcome those cravings. However, if you change the way you eat will it make you live longer?
You Are What You Eat
Have you ever heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat’? Well, in a way that can be true because if you’re someone who constantly eats fatty foods and unhealthy snacks you are more at risk of being overweight and suffering from health complications. That isn’t to say if you eat nothing more than vegetables, you’ll never have to see a doctor but you often find people who eat healthy feel and look far healthier. It’s a strange thing to say but it can be true. You mightn’t think seeking the help of an online therapist would be necessary when it comes to eating healthy but it might especially if you have trouble avoiding bad foods.
The causes of eating disorders are complex and each person who suffers is unique. Symptoms emerge out of interaction among biological, psychological, relational, and environmental forces that converge in an imperfect union. — Judy Scheel Ph.D., L.C.S.W., CEDS
