Chronic Dieting and Exercising

Bridgewater, N.J. (July 24, 2013) – Researchers believe that chronic dieting and exercising plays a pivotal role in the upkeep of Anorexia Nervosa.

Chronic dieting and exercising is usually the first step to developing an eating disorder. Typically, those who suffer from an eating disorder will begin to exercise vigorously after each meal in hopes to burn off the calories that were just digested. However, dieting as soon as you are done eating only reduces the calories intake by 50%. As we are eating our body automatically starts to collect and digest the calories.

The health effects of chronic exercising are:

  • Dehydration

  • Osteoporosis

  • Arthritis

  • Loss of menstrual cycle

  • Heart problems

  • Reproductive problems
