  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • Mood swings due to hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiences.
  • Trying to control your body weight/shape by vomiting, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise.
  • Comparing your body shape and/or weight to others.
  • Poor circulation that causes cold hands and feet.
  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.
