Re: [Special guest] Butterfly Foundation- How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

Thanks so much @Chris-Butterfly, learnt so many things today and that link that you gave approaching someone you care about has some really great tips on how to talk to someone we are worried about.

 

Re: [Special guest] Butterfly Foundation- How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

@Ben-RO It can be a tough topic to talk about with anyone. However I think important to know that there is support out there for people who might be concerned. There are a lot of understanding professionals with experience in the area of eating concerns and body image. At Butterfly we have great counsellors as well experienced too who you can contact on 1800 33 4673 or at the Butterfly Foundation website

Re: [Special guest] Butterfly Foundation- How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

What’s okay and what’s not okay? Is it okay to go on a diet or work out a lot? Is it okay to not like something about your body?

 

I'm going to be absolutely honest with this and say that I struggle to know these things myself. Like is it better to slowly ease yourself into a better lifestyle (food wise) or just change it all at once?


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [Special guest] Butterfly Foundation- How do you know if you have an eating disorder?

Interesting question @stonepixie and a tough one. It can certainly be tough to change everything at once. Often taking things in steps can be really helpful and less daunting!
