Male Eating Disorder Tampa FL

Fight for Life

Anyone can develop an eating disorder. But as a man, you’re faced with additional stigmas—which can make reaching out for help harder. We offer compassion inpatient care to reshape your relationship with your body and mind, so you can move forward with your life.

How Male Eating Disorders Differ

About one in every three people struggling with an eating disorder is male. Men with anorexia may become more prompted or anxious to work out and men may engage in food rituals that look strange to others. Men with bulimia are more likely to compensate for binge eating with intense exercise than other purging behaviors. Sadly, males suffering from eating disorders may also be more likely to engage in suicidal behaviors than females. While behaviors differ slightly, the underlying cause of the condition is generally the same: men suffering from eating disorders turn to restricting food in order to regain a sense of control over their lives. Identifying and treating the root cause is critical to finally overcoming the eating disorder.
