“Food is a basic human need and eating is a necessary human function. We need food to live. Because food and eating is everywhere, it makes it all that much harder to struggle with an eating disorder. Unlike when someone has an unhealthy relationship with drugs or alcohol and abstinence from the chemical substance places the disease into remission, food cannot be avoided. We see food every day and everywhere; in the grocery store, walking down the street, driving in your car, at work, at social events, during holidays and celebrations. Clients will often say things like, “food is a huge part of our day…that’s three times a day when I have to face a struggle!”
