Disordered eating refers to a continuum of eating behaviors that can be linked to managing overwhelming emotions or to negative beliefs about ourselves, food, or our body image. Not every person with disordered eating behaviors or a negative view of their body has a diagnosable eating disorder (i.e., anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating disorder), but they may eat or not eat due to stress, use food to find comfort or to establish a sense of control, or have rigid or strange food rules or rituals that affect their health, relationships, and overall functioning.

People with AD/HD (ADD) can be predominantly inattentive or hyperactive, or they can have signs of both inattentiveness and hyperactivity.

Regardless of how positive stress can be, it can take a toll on a person's overall functioning.
