For Immediate Release
It is predicted that more than three-quarters of all women between the ages of 25 and 54 make diet and weight-loss resolutions each year, according to a nationwide survey sponsored by Gardenburger Inc. Nearly nine out of ten respondents reported only occasional or no success, while almost half lost little or actually gained weight instead, the survey found.
Deb P., a CEDRIC Centre client puts it this way, "I didn’t realize I had an actual eating disorder, I just thought I had no will power and liked food too much. My work with The CEDRIC Centre has made it possible for me stop sticking a band-aid on the problem with constant diets, and start taking myself, and my needs, seriously."
The CEDRIC Centre, (Community Eating Disorder and Related Issues Counselling), specializes in the treatment of clinical eating disorders, sub-clinical disordered eating patterns, and related issues such as anxiety, depression, and distorted body image. Their counselors provide bodywork, group, and individual counselling, as well as community outreach presentations for schools, educators, and health professionals. All of The CEDRIC Centre’s counsellors have long standing recovery from an eating disorder, and are proud to have facilitated the recovery of hundreds of men and women in Victoria , BC and beyond.
