The Truth About Eating Disorders People Often Overlook

  The Truth About Eating Disorders People Often Overlook A woman explains the common misconceptions people have when they hear the words "eating disorder." She explains what she wants people to know instead. When someone hears the words eating disorder, they often think of anorexia or bulimia. What they usually don’t think of is binge eating disorder, diabulima, pica, EDNOS (eating disorder not otherwise specified), night eating syndrome, or any of the other types of eating disorders that exist. When someone hears the words eating disorder, they often think of a girl and not a boy.

Just doing this will briefly familiarize you with all of the words on the list. It is quite likely you will run into a word you do not know how to pronounce. However, if you really want to win a spelling bee , you already have the interest in words so you should definitely give them a try.
