Body Image & Eating Disorders

Is your teen struggling with body image and eating disorders?

At LifePath, we understand the complexities teens face regarding body image and eating disorders. In our world today, teens experience a bombardment of messaging around diet culture, bodies, and self-worth. It can feel overwhelming for a teen to navigate and build trust with their changing bodies while wading through these shame-based implicit and explicit messages. Our compassionate approach empowers teens to navigate these challenges, fostering a healthy relationship with their bodies.
Common Body Image and Eating Disorder Challenges with Teens
  • Excessive preoccupation with weight and appearance
  • Changes in eating habits, such as extreme dieting or binge eating
  • Frequent negative comments about their body
  • Isolation or withdrawal from social activities
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Secretive behavior around food
  • Exercising excessively or obsessively
  • Expressing fear of gaining weight
  • Physical symptoms like dizziness, fatigue, or hair loss
  • Avoidance of meals or specific food groups
