What is an Eating Disorder
Orthorexia nervosa (also known as orthorexia) is a term used to describe people who have developed a fixation with healthy or righteous eating. It has also been referred to as a mental disorder.
Night eating syndrome, or NES, is an emerging eating disorder, which primarily characterizes an ongoing, persistent pattern of late-night binge eating. NES was originally described by Dr Albert Stunkard in 1955and is currently proposed for inclusion in the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Also known as compulsive exercise, athletica nervosa, obligatory exercise, and exercise addiction, anorexia is a potentially life-threatening condition. The person with anorexia athletica no longer enjoys exercising, but feels obligated to do so. Treatment is usually required for this and other forms of anorexia because the condition is very difficult to overcome and worsens over time.
Over Exercise or exercise addiction is over-involvment in physical activity. It is not a matter of trying to perform at one's personal best or trying to achieve a certain level of fitness. If an exercise addict is unable to get to exercise for a time, they work out even more intensely the next time they get the opportunity to do so, as if they must not possibly miss getting their maximum amount of physical exertion; essentially they're practicing obligatory exercise.
