Eating disorders can develop during any stage in life but typically appear during teenage years or young adulthood. Disorders are either physical (irregular hormone functions, genetics) or psychological (low self-esteem, negative image). The cause can be contributed to disturbed family relations, traumas, cultural dictation, peer pressure (for example to perform well at school), stressful transitions in life or professions requiring thin bodies (modelling, ballet), etc. Most common forms of eating disorders are classified as Anorexia (unrealistic perception of the body, obsessive fear of weight gain), Binge Eating (compulsive overeating, risk of obesity) and Bulimia (binge eating in combination with vomiting and/or excessive exercise).
