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...
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.
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...
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...

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...
Yes. That would be known as either a distored eating habit or an eating disorder known as compulsive over-eating / binge eating.

Eat healthy foods and excercise. Stay away from fried things and things that are creamy or particularly fattening.
Anorexia is a diseased that is where a person does not eat food. Diseases that happen when a person does not eat food include organ failure, liver disorders (janudice, for example), and malnourishment.

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.
Eat healthy foods and excercise. Stay away from fried things and things that are creamy or particularly fattening.
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).
They will be losing nutrients (essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins, ect.) and weight.
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.
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.

Anorexia was first diagnosed and recognized as an actual medical disorder in the 1880s.
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...

Anorexia is most common between the ages of 12 and 28.
Some people believe they should be, but others believe that they provide much-needed support for those who are on the sites. The argument goes either way. As of now, freedom of speech and press allow them to still operate.
The best place to get help is with professionals. This includes medical doctors, therapists, and support groups or people to talk to.

There is no exact answer for that. Anorexia first began to appear in medical textbooks as a disorder / disease in England and France in the mid-1800s.
