Struggling with eating and body image concerns? Contact a helpline in Puerto Rico for support.

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 1 hotlines in Puerto Rico.

  • Trying to control your body weight/shape by vomiting, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise.
  • Shifting food around on your plate so it looks like you’ve eaten more than you have.
  • Fear of gaining weight and becoming larger.
  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • 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."
  • Dizziness and potentially fainting.
  • Distorted body image: thinking you’re overweight when you’re a normal weight or underweight.

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.

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 Puerto Rico, a trained helpline counselor will listen to your concerns and offer you the support you need.

If you think you might need support with disordered eating or body image today, consider contacting a helpline in Puerto Rico for free, confidential help.
