Anorexia is a serious, life-threatening disorder. Individuals with anorexia tend to care intensely about meeting societal expectations and view themselves as overweight even when their weight is dangerously low. The goals with anorexia are to gently encourage the individual to see that they have a problem, to see themselves as they really are, and to develop realistic expectations and behaviors. Calorie logs and rewards can be used to track and encourage a healthy caloric intake. Overweight individuals have typically learned to use food to comfort themselves. The goals with overweight individuals are to help the individual identify their true needs and to get those needs met in healthy ways.
