Eating Disorder vs. Disordered Eating: What’s the Difference?

What is disordered eating?

Disordered eating is behaviour, thoughts and even emotions that revolve around food and unhealthy eating patterns, as well as excessive worries about one’s body image.

Unfortunately, disordered eating is relatively common and becoming increasingly more so.

What is the difference between disordered eating and an eating disorder?

Without a doubt, there is a difference between disordered eating and an eating disorder. Essentially, an eating disorder is a severe form of disordered eating.

Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder are just three examples of eating disorders. For more information, visit National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC).

To be diagnosed with an eating disorder specific criteria, including physical and psychological associations, need to be met.

Disordered eating examples

  • regular and excessive restricting of food (simply not eating enough)
  • on-and-off dieting (yo-yo dieting)
  • prolonged fasting (fasting that is too long and/or unhealthy, skipping meals)
  • anxiety associated with eating
  • compulsive eating habits
  • loss of self-control
  • guilt and shame associated with eating certain foods
  • binge eating episodes
  • chronic weight fluctuations
  • obsessing about food, body weight and/or shape
  • ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder)
  • orthorexia (unhealthy focus on eating in a healthy way)
  • emotional eating or eating for comfort and to cope with unpleasant feelings (anger, sadness, anxiety et al.)
  • overexercising
  • and more
