World of Eating Disorders: What is OSFED?

Hi.  I’m Jan Ashby jan-ashby and I once wrote an article for my HealthyKids site that touched on anorexia.  Today I want to share a post about “OSFED” – which you may or may not know about.  It’s an acronym for Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders.

Would you believe it is actually more common than bulimia or anorexia nervosa?

I selected this smart article as it does have some good diagrams (see #3 and #4 ). And it has an app you can use to record your thoughts & feelings about food – this is under #8, near bottom of the page.

It is a good show; I’ve watched and enjoyed it, and it scored a HIT among  adults 18 to 49.  Airing on Friday night it was a highly rated broadcast show, and then it moved to Tuesdays.
