This Seminar adds to the previous Lancet Seminar about eating disorders, published in 2003, with an emphasis on the biological contributions to illness onset and maintenance. The diagnostic criteria are in the process of review, and the probable four new categories are: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, and eating disorder not otherwise specified. These categories will also be broader than they were previously, which will affect the population prevalence; the present… 
Psychopharmacological Options in the Multidisciplinary and Multidimensional Treatment of Eating Disorders
TLDR
Although EDs are relatively frequent psychiatric disorders in the general population, especially in adolescent and juvenile age groups, evidence based on the scientific evidence of the efficacy of the pharmacological treatment of EDAs remains modest.
Changes in eating disorder characteristics over the years
TLDR
No differences were found between the three cohorts except for depression, which increased over the years, and specific characteristics of eating disorder pathology did not change across time.
Eating disorders - early identification in general practice.
TLDR
An approach to diagnosis is outlined together with an update on evidence based treatments and general practitioners are uniquely placed to recognise early onset eating disorders, offer intervention and help coordinate and monitor treatment.

TLDR
The association between insecure attachment and eating disorder severity is likely mediated by affect dysregulation and perfectionism.
A review of cognitive neuropsychiatry in the taxonomy of eating disorders: State, trait, or genetic?
TLDR
Evidence of difficulties in set shifting, weak central coherence, emotional processing difficulties, and altered reward sensitivity is presented for people both in the acute and recovered phase of the illness.
Psychodynamic treatment of eating disorders: an attachment-informed approach
Abstract Eating disorders are highly burdensome mental illnesses that are not well understood and whose treatments result in small to moderate positive outcomes. Although many practitioners use
Impact of bipolar disorder on eating disorders severity in real-life settings.
TLDR
The association between ED and BD increases ED severity for most of these core features and negatively impacts daily functioning, and highlights issues about the validity of screening tools to detect BD in patients with ED.
Systematic Review: Overlap Between Eating, Autism Spectrum, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
While there is growing evidence of clinical overlaps between the three disorders, it remains difficult to determine whether overlapping characteristics are due to common comorbidities or are instead primarily associated with EDs and neurodevelopmental disorders.
How eating affects mood
TLDR
Based on the present hypothesis, eating disorders are not the result of a primary mental disorder and the notion suggests that the patients should be treated by learning to eat an appropriate amount of food at an appropriate rate.
A comprehensive review of psychodynamic treatments for eating disorders
TLDR
The body of literature on psychodynamic treatments is sparse and sometimes methodologically questionable; nevertheless, current data provide support to the effectiveness of these interventions, particularly for AN.

Eating disorders
TLDR
Treatment of anorexia nervosa and atypical eating disorders has received remarkably little research attention and a specific form of cognitive behaviour therapy is the most effective treatment, although few patients seem to receive it in practice.
Psychological treatment of eating disorders.
TLDR
Current conceptual and clinical innovations designed to improve on existing therapeutic efficacy and the problems of increasing the dissemination of evidence-based treatments that are unavailable in most clinical service settings are discussed.
Comorbidity of eating disorders with bipolar disorder and treatment implications.
TLDR
Pharmacologic treatment approaches to patients with BD and a co-occurring eating disorder require examination of the possible adverse effects of the treatment of each syndrome on the other and attempts to manage both syndromes with agents that might be beneficial to both.

Anxiety in the eating disorders: understanding the overlap.
TLDR
It appears that women with eating disorders have higher rates of anxiety disorders than normal controls, and safety behaviours and cognitive avoidance strategies are suggested as potential mechanisms linking the disorders.
Cognitive behaviour therapy for eating disorders: a "transdiagnostic" theory and treatment.
TLDR
A new transdiagnostic theory of the maintenance of the full range of eating disorders is proposed, a theory which embraces a broader range of maintaining mechanisms than the current theory concerning bulimia nervosa.
Outcomes of eating disorders: a systematic review of the literature.
TLDR
The strength of the bodies of literature was moderate for factors associated with AN and BN outcomes and weak for BED, and little to no data was available to compare results based on sociodemographic characteristics.
Thinking afresh about the classification of eating disorders
The DSM-IV scheme for classifying eating disorders1 has certain fundamental flaws. Most prominent among them is the fact that the supposedly “residual” diagnostic category, eating disorder not

TLDR
