Is my Teen ‘Just Dieting’ or Developing an Eating Disorder?

by Iréné Celcer LCSW, MAChildhoodObesity

Dear Reader: This is Part I of a four-part series…

Julie just turned 15. This is the third night that she chimes in about her meat, “Mom, this is disgusting …and cruel too!“ She also declares,  “I am a vegetarian.”
You are not sure what to think.

You recall that eating disorders start by teens not eating meat.
On the fifth night that Julie eats only salad you are officially worried.
