          Dr. Phil To Guest: ‘Do You Think Your Relationship With Food, Your Interaction With Food, Is Healthy Or Unhealthy?’


          January 23, 2019

          Maddie adamantly denies her family’s claim that she is anorexic. The 5’10” 18-year-old says she wants to reach her goal of getting below 100 lbs., even though she admits she has no energy.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is Dr. Phil your only hope?

          “Do you think your relationship with food, your interaction with food, is healthy or unhealthy?” Dr. Phil asks the teen on Wednesday’s episode.

          “Unhealthy,” replies Maddie, who says it gives her anxiety. “I know I have distorted thoughts toward food,” she admits.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews a list of five traits or personality characteristics of people who are at high risk of eating disorders.

          The list includes perfectionism, inflexibility, rule dependency, excessive doubt or caution, and a drive for order or symmetry. When he asks Maddie a series of questions about her personality characteristics, does she say any of the traits apply to her?
