It is estimated that 10 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder, with millions more having significant stress or anxiety over weight related issues. Eating disorders cover a range of illnesses, from anorexia nervosa (a person being dangerously underweight and still believing they're overweight), bulimia nervosa (a normal weight person who tries to control binge eating by purging food after they've eaten it) and binge-eating disorder (eating large amounts of food due to stress or anxiety) among others.
