You have taken the first step in moving from Recovery to Recovered

Working with Dani's Garden you will know from the beginning that you've embarked on a transformative journey from recovery to a state of wellness. Disordered Eating (DE) is characterized by irregular eating patterns that don't meet the criteria for an eating disorder diagnosis. These behaviors include restrictive food intake, limited food choices, feelings of loss of control, and negative emotions such as shame or guilt. While DE can be more difficult to detect due to its subtlety, it crucial to address it as it may escalate into an eating disorder if left untreated. An individual with an eating disorder may exhibit some disordered eating behaviors; however, not everyone disordered eating can be diagnosed with an eating disorder. 

Dani's Garden was established as a proactive measure against the progression to eating disorders, offer support in Preventive Care, Recovery and Support as a step-down program, and Recovery Maintenance. We work with children ages 3 and older with parents as well as teens and seniors. 

cOMMON dISORDERED EATING sTRUGGLES 

  • Hoarding and Food Insecurities: Individuals with food insecurities may develop disordered eating patterns as a response to uncertainty about their next meal. This can lead to hoarding food when it’s available, which may contribute to binge eating or other unhealthy eating behaviors.
  • Alcohol Abuse: Those struggling with alcohol abuse may also experience disordered eating. Alcohol can disrupt normal eating patterns and lead to poor nutrition. Additionally, some may use food to cope with the effects of alcohol, leading to binge eating or other disorders2.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnant individuals may experience changes in appetite and body image, which can lead to disordered eating. Concerns about weight gain during pregnancy might prompt restrictive eating or overeating.
  • Student-Athletes: The pressure to maintain a certain weight or body composition for performance can lead to disordered eating among student-athletes. Individuals may resort to restrictive dieting, excessive exercise, or adopt unhealthy eating behaviors to fulfill the requirements of their sport.
  • Military Personnel: Military personnel may face unique stressors that contribute to disordered eating, such as the need to meet strict physical requirements or cope with traumatic experiences. It has been observed that disordered eating is more prevalent in military populations than in the general public.
  • Pre and Post Weight Loss Surgery: Individuals who undergo weight loss surgery may have a history of disordered eating, and the surgery can sometimes exacerbate these issues. Post-surgery, patients may struggle with adapting to new eating patterns and may experience binge eating or other eating disorders.
  • Addictions: Addiction and disordered eating often co-occur. The compulsive behaviors associated with addiction can also manifest in eating habits, leading to disorders like binge eating or night eating syndrome.
  • Binge Eating: Binge eating disorder (BED) involves consuming large amounts of food in a short period and feeling a lack of control over eating. It’s a serious condition that can lead to obesity, depression, and other health issues.
  • Night Eating Syndrome: This disorder is characterized by consuming a significant portion of daily calories at night and waking up to eat.
