AED Guidebook for Nutrition Treatment of Eating Disorders

About this resource

This publication, created by the Academy for Eating Disorders Nutrition Working Group, contains basic information regarding elements of nutrition care for individuals with eating disorders.

The guideline is intended as a resource to clinicians who are providing nutritional interventions as part of a multi-disciplinary team or are otherwise
involved in the care of these individuals. It is not intended to be a comprehensive nutrition therapy guide. The information provided is based on available research and current best practices.

The basic goal of nutrition therapy in the treatment of all EDs diagnoses is achievement of normal eating behaviors meeting nutritional needs in a regular, balanced, sustainable way without fearful, negative, and distorted thoughts about food, body, and self.
