Get help for eating disorder and body image problems from a helpline in Alaska, United States.

Being hyper-critical of your body may mean that you have a negative body image. Having a negative body image can escalate into disordered eating. If you're experiencing eating or body image problems, there are 1 free helplines available in Alaska, United States. You may benefit from helpline support if you notice these symptoms:

  • 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.

Eating disorders can be all-consuming. When you become preoccupied with controlling your weight and what you eat, other important aspects of life can fall by the wayside. It can be an extremely isolating experience.

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 think you might need support with disordered eating or body image today, consider contacting a helpline in Alaska, United States for free, confidential help.
