You can lose or gain weight. An eating disorder could be you don't eat at all or you eat too much, such as seeking food for comfort.

That would depend on what your eating disorder is, if it is that you are prone to overeating, it is going to be difficult to lose weight, on the other hand, if you have a eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia, you will lose weight.

Yes, however this is almost never recommended. Vomiting to lose weight is a serious eating disorder called Bulimia.

you lose it in a healthy way. you don't let it take over your life, and you don't get obsessed. you lose weight just to be healthy, not thin.

This doesn't sound like an eating disorder (unless the friend is bingeing/purging) . It sounds like depression. When someone is depressed, they often gain weight and don't have the energy to lose the weight that they want to.

Starving to lose weight is very dangerous. A person can lose weight rapidly, but it comes with a great health toll and can be fatal. It is also a sign of the eating disorder anorexia. Doing so, the weight is often regained very qickly once normal eating is restored. The best and proper way to lose weight would be with moderate diet and exercise.

Starvation is not a good weight loss tactic; you're better off eating healthy and exercising regularly. "Trying" to get an eating disorder is not the way to go.

It depends on the individual and the severity of the disorder. The more calories are restricted and the more exercise is done, the faster a person will lose weight.

Millions of people go on diets, as noted by the amount of Dieting Books, that are on the shelves of bookstores. The diet industry is getting rich because people want to lose weight.
