Is obesity an eating disorder?


What exactly is an eating disorder?  Of course there is a clinical definition but anorexia, bulimia and binge eating are all seen ultimately as an inappropriate response to the environment or situation we live in.  Could we say the same for obesity?  And if we did, what does this mean for helping people overcome it?   Perhaps we’re looking at it from too narrow a viewpoint.  Then perhaps lifestyle medicine, coaching and helping people grow emotionally and intuitively is also part of the picture.  What are your thoughts?  Please write below.
