Exercise and eating and weight disorders: a topical collection
Historically, physical activity has been discouraged in the context of eating disorder treatment, and has only recently become a focus of clinical research. Subsequently, we understand little about the etiology of driven exercise as a pernicious symptom, or how to effectively manage and integrate activity into eating disorder treatment and recovery. The topical collection Physical Activity and Eating and Weight Disorders is intended to improve understanding of physical activity within transdiagnostic eating pathology, highlighting the study of mechanisms that initiate and maintain this symptom. The collection will also feature the integration of activity into eating disorder prevention and intervention efforts.
