Missing a few meals here and there isn’t necessarily a problem, especially for busy college students. However, if the pattern becomes intentional, obsessive or disruptive, a closer look may be in order. Treatment works best with early detection. The sooner a person acknowledges the problem and seeks help, the sooner and easier the recovery can be.

There are many resources about eating issues, both on- and off-campus.
