Contact a hotline for eating disorder and body image issues in United States today

If you're unhappy with the way your body looks and it's affecting how you feel from day to day, you may be at risk for developing an eating disorder. Perhaps you're already experiencing eating problems. If you have any of the following symptoms, reach out to one of 22 hotlines in United States.

  • Cutting out certain foods or food groups all of a sudden.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Experiencing strong negative emotions when thinking about your body.
  • Regularly checking your body in the mirror for flaws.
  • Weighing yourself often, sometimes every day or even multiple times a day.
  • Bruising easily with bruises taking longer to fade.
  • Growth of a fine layer of hair on the body called lanugo.

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.

Taking the first step to talk to someone about what you're going through is hard but the sooner you get help, the sooner you may start to feel better. When you contact a helpline in United States, a trained helpline counselor will listen to your concerns and offer you the support you need.

For free and confidential support with eating and body image, consider contacting a hotline in United States today.
