In three days, no. You have to be doing it awhile to be anorexic, at least a few months. Not that I'm saying you should, don't. It sucks."I'd say if you were not eating for the sake of losing weight you might be on your WAY to having one." As the person at the bottom said.


No doubt there is SOMETHING wrong. Perhaps it would be good for you to seek professional help if for no other reason to find out the cause of your aversion to food.


Yes, this is called anorexia nervosa. It is an eating disorder where a person is terribly afraid of becoming fat, overweight, or obese. The very sight of food can make them nauseous and disgusted. It is the 1st step leading to anorexia.

AnswerYou probably have anorexia. If you've been starving yourself, i suggest you seek medical help. New Answer

No that is NOT an eating disorder. Anorexia Nervosa has other symptoms like , 15% underweight [ 17.5 bmi ] fear of gaining weight, no period.

I'd say if you were not eating for the sake of losing weight you might be on your WAY to having one.

Should you see a doctor about your binge eating disorder?

Eating disorders, such as binge eating disorder, have the potential to do harm to your body. If you feel your eating disorder is out of control, it is appropriate to see a doctor, specifically a psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders. This is important because while binge eating disorder itself does not pose the risk of grievous harm to the body other than weight gain, it is often caused by the more serious problem of anxiety or depression. Also, binge eating disorder can quickly escalate to bulimia, which is very harmful to the body and can result in death. However, if you are not comfortable with seeing a medical professional for your binge eating disorder, there are some support groups both online and in community centers that can help you overcome your eating disorder. This is a viable option if you have strong motivation to end your eating disorder, if your eating disorder is not overly out of control, and you have the personal strength to better yourself.
