  •   However bleak the picture painted in this article so far, remember that the majority of Anorexia Nervosa suffers do not succumb to the illness and help is at hand for all. There are a number of treatments available to sufferers. Medical care especially for those with severe anorexia is available along with psychotherapy. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is proving very affective in tackling helpful thoughts and behaviour that are at the core of the eating disorder. Recognizing triggers and developing coping strategies that patients can use to help take control of their anorexia can be very effective.

  •   This obsession or focus on constant monitoring of calories and weighing themselves helps them block out unwanted feelings and emotions. So it can be seen as a symptom of possible mental health problems, especially around self-esteem or what I prefer to refer to as self-acceptance.

      This need for control doesn't help them as they live in denial and refuse to seek help basically because they don't feel they deserve the attention and most feel they don't deserve to eat: this tying into problems with self-acceptance.

  •   Put all of this into a training plan and you are well on your way to losing weight. Remember, restrict your calorie intake and exercise in the gym at least 3 times a week, performing cardiovascular exercises and resistance or weight training and you have the essentials of a successful weight loss program in place.

  •   Weight training or resistance training if you like, is also very effective at burning calories. One might wonder just how this can be considering that cardiovascular exercises are so effective at burning calories and yet so to is weight training. As physical exercise goes, they are at opposite ends of the spectrum. The secret behind weight training is that it speeds up your bodies metabolism, which helps the body burn up calories faster. Weight training also tones your muscles and more importantly for men, builds size and shape, so that when you do shed those unwanted pounds, a fit shapely form is waiting to be 'unwrapped'.

  •   But what exercises should I perform? One of the most effective forms of exercise is cardiovascular training. Cardio burns calories fast. What needs to be achieved is a level of exercise that will burn off your daily calorie intake. All training beyond this point would then work at burning off fat stored. Exercises such as aerobics and circuit training are very effective at burning up calories and fat.

  •   Eating correctly is the first step to losing weight. When it comes to eating, the most important thing you must do is count calories. The more you restrict your calorie intake, the faster you will see results. Excess calories are turned into fat, so eating less of them makes sense. We also burn off calories when we exercise, so the more calories we take in, the more exercise we will need to perform if we want to lose the weight.

  •   OCD does not affect the individual alone but also creates a large burden on those who live with an OCD sufferer. With the help of a psychiatrist or other mental health professional, OCD can be treated successfully. A treatment plan using drugs as well as behaviour therapy is often the most successful route to take.

  •   A high level of anxiety is associated with compulsive rituals. Compulsions actions or rituals that are performed by the sufferer in an attempt to alleviate the obsessional thoughts of OCD which they often find intrusive or distressing. Often the link between the compulsive actions and the scenario or situation they are intending to prevent, or keep themselves or others safe from, does not make any sense and is not realistic, such as not stepping on cracks in the side-walk for fear of falling through them.

  •   Behaviour therapy is very effective for treating OCD and works to help reduce the compulsive behaviour of the person. It is important to note that just because someone shows traits of perfectionism or fixation does not necessarily indicate a diagnosis of OCD. Symptoms would need to disrupt the daily life of the sufferer such as spending a number of hours each day involved in performing rituals or repetitive actions such as washing of hands.

  •   Unfortunately no clear cause that leads to a person developing OCD. There is however help for those that have OCD. Research points to a class of medication called serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SRIs) and selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) that can help to reduce the symptoms of OCD. Once taken, weaning the person off the medication as relapse often occurs when a patient suddenly stops taking their medication.
