Contact a hotline for eating disorder and body image issues in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada today

If you can't stop criticizing your body or if you're using extreme measures to try to control the way your body looks, you may have a problem. Eating disorders often start this way.

  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.
  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • Trying to control your body weight/shape by vomiting, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise.
  • Feeling uncomfortable eating in front of others.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Weighing yourself often, sometimes every day or even multiple times a day.

You may feel so ashamed of your body and your eating habits that you want to hide away and disengage from the world. It may be hard to open up about how you're feeling because you may think that you'll be misunderstood.

It can be hard to deal with the feelings of shame and guilt that so often accompany negative body image and disordered eating. Admitting that you've lost control and that you need help may feel harder than keeping your problems to yourself.

If you feel like you might need support with your body image or eating disorders, try reaching out to a hotline in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It's free and confidential.
