Eating Disorders Survey

More Survey Results

photo used under a creative commons license Since most of the individuals taking this survey probably have an Eating Disorder (ED), the results are not surprising. One interesting finding is how many people are afraid to handle food (nearly 15%). Another is the high percentage of people who obsess about food and or have food cravings (71%) Given what we know about MSG, that it is highly addicting, obsessive thoughts and food cravings would make sense.

Survey Results: 38.5% of eating disorder victims have also been diagnosed with ADD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Some of the responses are pretty interesting. I’ve found that many of my patients, as well as many responders to my survey have also been diagnosed with ADD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).  According to my survey, 38.5% of eating disorder victims have also been diagnosed with ADD or OCD. These mental illnesses can be the trigger or the result of an eating disorder. Thus, treatment for the eating disorder must also include treatment of contributing illnesses. Here are the current, detailed results from my survey. If ...

Survey Results – The Positive Effects of Residential Treatment For Eating Disorders Are Minimal!

Over half of the respondents said that minimal changes resulted from residential treatment, and that, “my relationship with food did not improve during or after treatment and I still have the same symptoms.” Finally, a whopping 70% (combining the last four categories) stated that their eating disorder either worsened or that they developed another eating disorder after receiving residential treatment!

Survey Results – Interesting Results Regarding Shopping Behavior

photo used under a creative commons license Here are the current, detailed results from my survey regarding shopping behavior. Notice that over half (52%) of the respondents specifically buy “binge” food and that only 31.5% buy healthy food all the time. What’s also interesting is that only 7% of respondents buy fast foods or processed foods. These numbers are generated primarily by the eating disordered population. However, in the general public the truth remains that our nation consumes 41% more processed foods than fresh foods! How much fast food or processed foods is your body consuming?

MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE: POISON THE BODY TO BETTER THE TASTE!

photo used under a creative commons license “I’ve been treating eating disorders (ED’s) and obesity for nearly 25 years and have always had good outcomes.  My rate of success improved dramatically, however, when I discovered the critical role that processed food plays in causing as well as in preventing recovery from Anorexia, Bulimia, Bulimarexia, (a combination of the two) Binge Eating Disorder (BED,) Emotional Eating and Obesity. To this end, I find it of great importance to provide both my patients and readers with relevant nutrition information to aid in their recovery.
