Not in and of itself, but fear of food and eating (and potentially gaining weight from eating such foods) can be a key sign to an eating disorder.

Fear of eating in front of other people can be a symptom of social anxiety disorder.



This isn't actually an Eating Disorder as such. It's a phobia called Citophobia (also Sitophobia or Sitiophobia).It doesn't mean the person doesn't want to eat, but that they are too terrified. An Eating Disorder where the sufferer does not eat is usually more related to the body, and therefore not a phobia.One can also have a fear of swallowing, where the food isn't an issue. This is called Phagophobia.
