Ummm if its something like anorexia or bulimia get help. The problem is probably in your mind
Forcing yourself to throw up is very dangerous. It is a sign of the potentially-deadly eating disorder, bulimia, and cannot be promoted by WikiAnswers.
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...
If the personal trainer is aware of the anorexia in his or her client, and continues to help them lose significant weight, they might be able to be held liable in the way that they are enabling the disorder and might be worsening the condition. If they are unaware of any probelm, then they cannot be...
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 asinsecure as they do with their bodies, but most eating disordersstart 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.
The only treatment that is going to benefit the person suffering, is one that deals directly with the underlying causes. For this reason, many treatments simply suppress a few symptoms. They do not effect cure. Measures of success have nothing to do with weight. Locking someone away and preventing...
Drink cold water at small sips at a time a breath slowly.
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...
That is a very touchy subject. Do you know for a fact she is anorexic? Or does she just look thin? If you are not sure, then do not say anything. Also, if you do not know her personally, it can be very awkward and uncomfortable and actually quite rude if you just approach her. Until you have more...
To lose weight, you need to diet and exercise. The amount of weight you would lose would depend on amny factors, such how how long / how instense you worked out, the calories you ate, how much you slept, and so on.
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. A 125 pound 13 year old does not...
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.
Slow down! chew slower and at least 20 times a mouthful, drink water with it SLOWLY! or it comes back up again
yes, they both work as the same. I take either one and they both do the job for me. It can depend on which "laxative" you are taking though. For instance Movicol and Sodium docusate are both "laxatives", one is a capule and one is a powder that dissolves in water. However they both work in...
There is no accurate way to know for sure, but it is know thataround 800,000 people (just under) may suffer with eating disordersin general. The statistic states that 40% have bulimia, 10% haveanorexia and the other 50% have EDNOS or an unspecified or unknowneating disorder. Adding some maths to...
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...
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.
Eating 800 calories a day is very dangerous. A man of that height and weight should be consuming about 2,000 to 2,200 calories a day. If they wished to lose weight, the best way would be to reduce the calories to around 1,600 to 1,800 calories a day and begin to exercise. Such a dramatic cut in...
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...
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.
It Depends If They Binge And Purge, Rather Than Purging Everything, I Purge Everything And Then Don't Eat For A Whole Day. And In Two Weeks I Lost 13 Pounds.
Maybe about .5 or 1 pound a week. Believe me there are easier, more effective ways.
That depends on the individual.

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...
Yes, but laxatives can be very dangerous and should seldom be used at all.

That's a really vague question since it depends on your weight, howmany calories you intake, how hard you are running, the distance ofthe run, the gradient of the run e.t.c
About 20% of anorexics will die from the disorder or directly from a complication that resulted for the eating disorder.
A person with bulimia may be thin, overweight, or have a normal weight. Also, bulimic behavior, such as throwing up, is often done in private because the person with bulimia feels shame or disgust. This makes it hard to know if someone has bulimia. But there are warning signs to look out for....
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...

That is a bad idea. You should just avoid junk food, eatmoderately-sized healthy meals, and get exercise. This will taketime; healthy weight loss is around 1-2 pounds per week.

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 colddue to this, and have very weak bones or osteoporosis. If a woman,they could lose their menstrual cycles too. Overall it is a veryserious disease.
