Do diets promote eating disorders? The Federal Center for Health Education (BzgA) in Cologne has indicated in a press release that regular diets can lead to an eating disorder.

The Federal Center for Health Education (BzgA) in Cologne has indicated in a press release that regular diets can lead to an eating disorder. For this purpose, the BzgA has launched the new Internet portal According to the BzgA, the portal is intended to provide support and information to those affected and their families. It should be noted that with the onset of spring in winter, many people often want to get rid of accumulated kilos in a very short time. This could lead to a cycle of "starvation, loss of control, binge eating, new diet and starvation again" and serious eating disorders.

Especially girls in puberty are, according to Professor Dr. Elisabeth Pott, the director of the BzgA, is prone to this type of cycle. From a naturopathic point of view, parents are asked to support the children in accepting their own individual body. Because the pressure, especially on young people who grapple with their bodies during puberty, is growing in our society. The trend towards general ideals of beauty and judging people purely according to their body mass has long been viewed as questionable in naturopathy and should be defused by a relaxed and individuality-accepting approach to the body and the social environment of the young people concerned.
