Bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are two of the eight eating disorder diagnoses.
Eating disorder prevention programs reduce the prevalence of eating disorder risk factors,
such as those delineated in the dual pathway model: pressure to be thin, thin ideal
internalization, body dissatisfaction, negative affect, and dieting behavior. The Orthodox
community is similar to the rest of society in that it is not immune to eating disorders. There
have been studies of a culturally adapted dissonance-based eating disorder prevention
program for the Orthodox community. More research needs to be done to better understand
the role and need of such a program in the Orthodox community.
