When it comes to eating disorders, there are probably two that immediately come to mind: Anorexia and bulimia. They’re the ones we see most on Very Special Episodes of our favorite TV shows, they’re the ones that experience the biggest crack downs when social media apps/sites censor their pro-ED communities, and they’re often thought of as the most severe eating disorders one can have. Hey, it’s important that we know as much as we can about them so we can know what to do if someone we know starts exhibiting symptoms. But believe it or not, they’re not the only eating disorders out there, not by a long shot.
Check out these eight eating disorders you didn’t know existed. Heads up, you’re witnessing these disorders on a daily basis–on your favorite YouTuber’s Snapchat stories, during your best friend’s birthday party–without even realizing it. Hell, you might have one of them yourself.
