Struggling with eating and body image concerns? Contact a helpline in Quebec, Canada for support.

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. If you experience any of these symptoms, consider getting support from one of 2 hotlines in Quebec, Canada.

  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Distorted body image: thinking you’re overweight when you’re a normal weight or underweight.
  • Withdrawal from social activities, especially ones that involve food and eating.
  • Experiencing strong negative emotions when thinking about your body.
  • Feeling guilty, ashamed, and disgusted after eating too much or after eating the “wrong” foods.
  • Being overly cautious of food portion size, especially about eating "too much."
  • Growth of a fine layer of hair on the body called lanugo.

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.
