The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected not just our physical health but also our mental health and lifestyles. So it is of no surprise that our eating habits might have changed, with most people gaining a few extra pounds. But what about those who were already suffering from eating disorders? What effect did locking down during the pandemic have on individuals who have toxic relationships with food?
Nowadays, there is more awareness among citizens on eating disorders and their devastating effects on our health through social media, blogs and helplines. According to research, teenagers and women are more prone to such psychological disorders, with a lifetime prevalence of 3.8%, compared to the 1.7% observed in men (approximately half as prevalent).
