It seems to me that in modern society the relationship with food has become a complex one with more and more people no longer enjoying food as a normal source of pleasure and nutrition. 

Many people have ‘disordered eating patterns’ or recognise themselves as emotional eaters which could fall into the category ‘Eating Disorder – not otherwise specified’.

ED-NOS covers those eating behaviours that are not clinical recognised Eating Disorders such as Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating, but include situations where the patient may do some of the following things:

-          Consume food and then exercise extensively or obsessively to burn off the calories they have eaten. 

-          Obsesses about the nutritional content of food so as to remove groups of food from their diet because they are too high in fat or carbohydrates for instances.   

-          Restrict or miss meals so that they can over consume later with either food or alcohol or both and so compensating for the extra calorie intake.

These eating patterns can lead to health issues that are not outwardly apparent as the clients will look fit and healthy and yet they could be doing harmful damage internally to their bodies.
