When weight problems become more complicated because eating disorders are involved, and vise-versa

Not all overweight people develop eating disorders like bulimia or compulsive eating. But these disorders are frequent, mostly for overweight persons who impose deprivations on themselves or who set in place prohibitions to control their weight.

Undertaking diets favor cognitive restraint, with loss of eating control which can itself lead to weight gains. This is clearly a vicious circle!

When eating disorders are present, their treatment is a matter of priority before making any effort to lose weight. In such cases, diet methods are bound to failure and will worsen bulimia and other compulsive behavior.
