Any disorder of eating that has to do with incorrect perception of the person's body image may be termed an eating disorder. Example of eating disorders include Anorexia nervosa, Bulemia, Binge eating to name a few.

According to the National Eating Disorders Association, the average American model is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 117 pounds while the average American weighs 140 lbs. The media plays a big role in projecting the ultra thin models as being ideal leading to significant distortion in the body image of many.

Eating disorders are more than just a problem with food as those with eating disorders use food as a means to feel in control of other feelings that may otherwise seem overwhelming. A person suffering from anorexia nervosa may start starving in order to feel more in control of their life, reduce tension, anger, and anxiety. On the other hand, those suffering from Bulima might resort to purging and other behaviors to prevent weight gain are ways for people with bulimia.
