Can anyone tell me why my step daughter sneaks food all the time. She spends the summmer with her father and I but she also does this at home. We have told her that she doesn't have to sneak food but she still does it. I need help to understand this. Thanks,Peggy

Chances are this is because you're restriting her eating habits.

My daughter does it for control. I do it for control. Unfortunately, we're at opposite sides of the scale. I can be classified as "underweight" and she could be classified as "overweight". I realize that I control myself by food--or lack of it. My daughter does the opposite. Give her control of something...a pet, food choices, etc. Your child has to make the decision before it will work. We're just starting on this path since my daughter has decided it's time for her.

sometimes people who have ED's such as overeating, or bulimia, ect, are emmbaressed to eat in front of people.
