SCOPE Tip of the Week

About Eating Disorders

Sarah has always struggled with her eating, but things have gotten even worse lately. She doesn’t join her friends when they go out to dinner. She spends time thinking about food and how she would feel pressured to eat around her friends. Sarah has reduced her eating to under 500 calories a day, works out at the fitness center for several hours daily and has recently begun taking laxatives to help speed up her weight loss.

The scenario described above is both common and troubling. College students are particularly prone to eating disorders as the mean age of onset of eating disorders is during the traditional college-aged years.

For more on eating disorders, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
