Exercise is vital for your body’s health but it can be harmful to your health when it is abused. If family or friends have expressed a concern to you about excessive exercise, or you see exercise as a means to an end and use exercise to compensate for food intake, then you may be at risk of an exercise or eating disorder. Take this survey to see where you fall compared to the norm for exercise relationships.
