The continuum of adolescent behavior addressed by the term “disordered eating” is complex. For decades the term has been more commonly associated with the severe end of the spectrum of eating-disordered behavior represented in the psychiatric diagnoses of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. This is largely connected to the historical perspective that conceptualized the behavior in terms of “disease” and paid little or no attention to the milder symptoms of the full-range continuum of eating behavior (Lucas, 1981). It is important, however, to recognize that disordered eating is itself a risk-taking behavior with a wide spectrum, including various types of unhealthy restricted food intake such as dieting and many patterns of binging behavior.
