Dieting is not the only cause of eating disorders. I've had an eating disorder since I was a teenager and didnt start dieting until my mid 20s. But Ivan safely say that the more I dieted the more I binges and the more I gained. Other people have different experiences though, some people here never binges until well after they started dieting. In all cases dieting perpetuates more binging.
