The holidays can be a hard time of year for many people, but they can be especially treacherous for people with eating disorders and their loved ones. The winter holidays are largely centered on food, and the additional stress from friends and family can make the season a mine field.

Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to make the holidays as painless as possible for those with eating disorders and their friends and family. The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa created a list of things you can do to prepare yourself for the upcoming Thanksgiving dinners and family get-togethers.

If you think you or someone you know is living with an eating disorder, please call (888) 298-4673. We can answer any questions you have and see if treatment is the right path for you or your loved one.
