Ummm if its something like anorexia or bulimia get help. The problem is probably in your mind
i think that the ppl that are most likely to get an eating disorder are the ppl that just want to go on a diet and loose a few pounds. they are like well i wont eat as much and i will loose a few, but after they loose a few pounds they are like hey i feel good maybe i can loose a few more. well once...
soap is good to eat ? u would die if u eat soap dove is good like boo
Yes they can. It's heartbreaking that so many young girls feel as  insecure as they do with their bodies, but most eating disorders  start around middle school (12-13) years.
it depend on what your mothers is like but a good mother should be helpful and supportive
I'm sorry, but WikiAnswers is a site to help people. Suggesting a website that contains infortmation about purging, a dangerous habit that can lead to eating disorders like bulimia and many health complications, would not be in a peron's best interest.
A good way to do this would be to open up by saying that you have some off eating habits that you are worried about. Say you want to get rid of them before they become worse and before something more drastic (like a full-blown eating disorder) occurs. Simply, but clearly, explain what you do, your...
  If you feel as if you might be developing it, get help early on. Otherwise, keep a healthy, balanced diet and your weight should stay at a healthy place and there will be no need to feel fat. The biggest thing though, is be prepared to get help the second you realize you are slipping in.
Bulimic activity increases as anxiety increases. Bullying has a very negative affect on the bulimic subject. It helps to think of bingeing and purging as simply symptoms of a much deeper issue. It is an issue that can manifest itself in a multitude of ways, usually when the sufferer is at their most...
  Woah, woah, woah. Firstly, anorexia nervosa is a serious psychological disease. One just doesn't "become anore[t]ic" on a whim, nor should one attempt to dangerously restrict calories for the purposes of losing weight. It's dangerous and further more, ineffective....
Virtually anyone can become anorexic. Mostly, anorexia occurs in young women (usually teens to early 20s) who come from well-off or middle-class families.
There is no accurate way to know for sure, but it is know that  around 800,000 people (just under) may suffer with eating disorders  in general. The statistic states that 40% have bulimia, 10% have  anorexia and the other 50% have EDNOS or an unspecified or unknown  eating disorder. Adding some...
Anorexic is the noun used to describe someone with anorexia nervosa. And anyone can have it. Anyone suffering from anxiety, delusions, abuse, or trauma is subject to this nasty mind disease. Anorexia is simply the medical term for loss of appetite, and isn't a disease but a symptom to be taken into...
Yes. Bulimia will mess up your stomach, throat, mouth, and parts of the rest of your body. Some bulimics will not be able to have children.
Bulimia is serious. Throwing up rots your stomach and throat. Your gums will practically fall off, you will experience hair loss, it is a possibility that you will not be able to have children, and it is possible that your esophogas can explode, which will cause death.
There is no exact date that this was first recorded on. There are, however, writings that date back to early Greek and Roman times of people throwing up after meals.
Anorexia and bulimia can happen for many reasons. In most cases, the disorder stems from a few problems. Some factors that can trigger eating disorders are...*Depression*Social Pressure, peer pressure, media influence, ect.*Low self-esteem*Low self-image*Bullying / teasing (often about weight)...
if u don't mind sharing, I can tell u right here wether u do or don't. I'm guessing u already know though, if u really want to see someone. There are definitely ways of contacting people who can help without your mom finding out about anything

Anorexia Nervosa is a devastating disorder whose name was first established by Sir William Gull in 1873 and is of Greek origin: a (a, prefix of negation), n (v, link between two vowels) and orexis (appetite), thus meaning a lack of desire to eat.

  Binge Eating is actually very similar to bulimia. The root of this is usually psychological. Some attitudes are that it leads the person into depression. On the physicial side you see weight gain and fatigue. Read more here: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/binge-eating-disorder/DS00608 ...
To be honest, if you are starving yourself and having no  carbohydrates due to this, you'll enter into a state of ketosis  where your body starts burning fat as it doesn't have anything else  to burn.   But as you probably guessed, starving yourself will only put your  body into starvation...
While it might be a sign of a compulsive eating habit, it could just be a common routine a person has established to make life easier and mroe convienent, so it is not a definite sign of an eating disorder.
Most laxatives do work, but only to some extent. Usually, they help the body release stored waste and water. The weight lost is not actual weight. Also, laxatives can be very dangerous. They can cause permanent damage and even death. They should only be used in dire cases, and even then only all...
About 20% of anorexics will die from the disorder or directly from a complication that resulted for the eating disorder.
Don't be anorexic. Whoever this is, is right. I am actually struggling with it, just eat a little, cut back on calories, exercise a lot, eat low cal food, or do what I said, eat only a little. Don't starve yourself, that's not what I suggest, you will be sad and miserable, seeing the people around...

As they are such complex mental illnesses, there will be an awful  lot of contributing factors, however 3 very common reasons may be:   1. A need for control.   2. A dieter who fell into unhealthy thinking and behaviours against  their will.   3. If someone already had disordered eating ...
Yes, you can lose weight by only eating soup. Although it is only a  quick-fix, some people go on the cabbage soup diet for a few days  to lose weight quickly. Long term however, it is not a healthy  option.
no but it will make your child skinny or not be able to live inside you because if you dont eat enough the baby will die inside your stomach :(
Meat with out fat is good for your health. Eating the same will not increase your weight unless you eat too much quantity.
There is no such medical name for it that I could find however  everyone is calling it Scab Picking Disorder.
It is rumored, but not totally confirmed that Nicole Nichie has anorexia.

I have had anorexia. It is not fun AT ALL. You would think that it would be worth it, to be skinny, but it isn't. I went into a short coma for a day or two because of anorexia.

No. In fact, anorexia treatment is often very wrong and hurtful towards the individual. While it may lower the effects of the eating disorder, it often does nothing to cure them in the long run. 60% to 80% of anorexics will relapse at some point (on varying levels).

I think that you need to express how you feel to your friend. Tell her that you're worried. If this doesn't help, I suggest that you ask a parent, guardian, or other close, responsible grownup for further help.
Bulimics touch their uvula, in the back of the throat, that piece of flesh that you can see when you open your mouth. The natural reflex is to throw up.
It is not just extreme weight loss that comes with anorexia,  anorexics may also lose their hair, get bad circulation, feel cold  due to this, and have very weak bones or osteoporosis. If a woman,  they could lose their menstrual cycles too. Overall it is a very  serious disease.
It varies for each person, but the general pattern is starting the day off planning to "eat right", which is usually an extreme diet, losing control at some point and binge eating thousands of calories for several minutes, then vomiting or using laxatives to rid the body of calories consumed during...
Immediate physical symptoms are tht it may cause some stomach aches and a bit of trouble sleeping if you eat too much at dinner time. It might be hard to walk after you eat; sometimes, drinking a glass of water might help the food go down faster.   Continually overeating can lead to an increased...
I found that simply by eating more and more at each meal, I startedto crave a greater amount of food each time, so my recommendationis to just start eating a ton, and slowly work your way up.

They can't make you but I think we both know that you really should (my sister suffered from anorexia only a year ago and has only been Okay for about 3 months).

Anorexia and bulimia often stem from deeper-lying reasons. They iften are means of control or a "safety blanket" of sorts to hide other problems. This can be to disguise personal, family, or problems with friends. Eating disorders are often diets-gone-too-far, or ways to make up for teasing and...

That can be a very difficult situation. Before you say anything, you really do need to know for certain that they have anorexia, borderline, or some other form of an eating disorder. If they do not, and you accoust them about it, they can be really hurt and offended, as rightfully they should.If you...

    Yes, bulimia can cause infertility. You may lose your period if you have bulimia and never get it back. This would obviously cause you to become infertile.  
Yes, it could, but it's not very likely. It would probably begin  with giving you lots of other health complications in specific  parts of your body, but if it went untreated for some time, it  could develop into something much more serious.   It's not extremely likely to happen, but it's not...

Yes. Anorexia is a documented and accepted disease / disorder.
When no food comes up anymore, or you see blood. But pruging is VERY dangerous and should never be done in the first place.

the cure rate is 3% of those diagnosed with anorexia .this is the rate for 2009.but sadly 20% will die even though they received help or not.86%of these who die were diagnosed before the age of 20.I know this id sad but this is real life
It depends on the person. Some anorexics become very thing within a few weeks. WHile many will eventually gain most of the weight back, and then some, as they go on with life, some do remain thin.
It will help because you can give up calorie counting. But if you  must count, then you should probably stick to plans. I think the  best thing to do is to just wait until you're hungry and your  intuition will help you out.
How do you know if you're anorexic? You maintain a weight that is 15% less that what it should be. Also the psychological factors. Control, compulsiveness, rituals, if this sounds like you or someone you know then go to a medical doctor. most of the time, you know if you have an eating disorder but...
