ignore it! keep busy, do something, keep moving, even if you feel hungry, think of it as the fact you're feeling lighter!! If you have an eating disorder you need to seek professional help as soon as possible. You can't keep yourself from being hungry. There is no magic pill or method to erase the feeling of hunger. Hunger is your body's way of telling you that it needs food and it needs it soon. Should you choose not to eat your body will start to metabolize the fat cells. Once those are gone the body will start digesting vital organs and other parts of the body. Evenutally, you will die.

How can an eating disorder affect your friendship?

If you have an eating disorder, you may or may not confide in your friends about it. If you do, you may have strained friendships. Your friends may feel torn between telling someone out of concern for you & wanting to keep it a secret because they're afraid you will be angry or hate them if they tell. If you have an eating disorder & do not confide in your friends about the disorder, you may end up alienating yourself from your friends. You may stop hanging out with their friends to avoid the chance of being offered food & having to come up with excuses of why you aren't hungry. Eventually, you may lose your friends because they get tired of being blown off.

Is overeating classed as an eating disorder?

YES it is considered an eating disorder. Overeating is as bad for you as under eating. If you over eat your body can function up to its full potential due to the systems shutting down or they are unable to keep up with everything dumped in the body. It depends on what you consider over eating, though. If what this person is doing is eating an obscene (to you) amount of food such as fruits, vegetables, etc. then that would not be considered over eating unless they are suffering from a specific condition of which there are far too many to mention in this one post.

What causes a pouch from a gastric bypass to stretch and what can be done to correct it?

The pouch stretches if someone overeats. You have to listen to your stomach (or your pouch) and stop eating when you're no longer hungry. If you keep eating when you're not hungry or when you're full, the pouch will stretch. If this has occurred, talk to your doctor about options. They may put you on a liquid diet until your stomach tightens back up.

Maybe the food you're eating isn't agreeing with you and you could be allergic to something. You could have an eating disorder if you don't eat enough or eat too much.

Ayraayra: There are also several medical conditions that could lead to this including; Celiac disease, in which the body can't tolerate gluten, or any kind of intestinal blockage, if this continues I would recommend going to the doctor and having them refer you to a specialist.
