This session outlines major changes with regard to well-known eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorders. ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) is a newly identified eating disorder characterized by extreme picky eating and recognized as potentially life-threatening. Other newly identified disorders such as orthorexia (when healthy eating becomes an obsession) and exercise addiction will also be discussed. The session will equip you to identify these disorders and understand the role of the dietitian in their treatment.”
