Almost certainly yes. A disorder means a lack of order.

Eating regularly and healthily is order, starving by choice is disorder. It's as simple as that.

If you are making yourself throw up, then you probably do have an eating disorder (eating disorder does not necessarily mean starving yourself), if it is coming up on its own something else might be wrong and you should go see your doctor.


It could be considered that, but what you're saying you should probably see a doctor for. It's called binge eating and is a disorder. I hope I helped!

Eating disorder where you starve yourself.


Starving yourself to lose weight is never a good idea. That is a sign of the dangerous and potentially deadly eating disorder known as anorexia nervosa. Starving will also lead to almost-immediate weight gain as soon as you return to normal eating again. Instead, proper dieting and exercise is always the best way to lose weight and to keep the weight off.

WikiAnswers does not encourage behavior which can be part of or lead to an eating disorder.



While the initial behaviors defining eating disorders such as starving oneself, excess food consumption, and purging are voluntary behaviors, it only becomes an eating disorder when the person has little control over these actions and develops anxieties about their bodies, their weight, and food. However, after developing an eating disorder and recognizing it, if the person does not seek help or try to end the behavior when resources are available they are choosing to live with or fully embracing their eating disorder. At that point they have chosen their eating disorder as their lifestyle.


the reason is many girls struggle with their looks just like I do. It is probably harder to starve yourself than to purge.

What do you mean "to starve yourselft to get sick"???? do you mean how long does it take for it to be an eating disorder? How long it takes to be 'too skinny'? How long it takes to make you vomit? Despite my conufusion, all questions need answering, so I will do my best:If you mean "for it to be an eating disorder", here is the answer:it becomees an eating disorder when you just keep on starving yourself exessively to loose weight because no matter what anyone says, you see yourself as a fat girl even thought you are pencil thin. that's when its an eating disorder.If you mean "for you to be 'too skinny' ",it is relatively the same as before: as soon as you get into the mind-set that you are fat even though everyone says you're "loosing weight too fast" or "your getting too thin", and as soon as your weight is much more below a healthy weight, you are too skinny. you would be able to tell, trust me.I you mean "to vomit", here is the answer: it is somewhat difficult to answer this one, but I'll try. First of all, not everyone vomits when they are starving themselves, only about 16% of all people do. If you try to make yourself vomit while starving yourself using gag reflex, ipecac, mustard seed oil with salt, or some other crazy mechonism , that is very dangerous. Inducing vomiting to loose weight is called bulimia, and is serious. Just so you know, starving yourself too loose weight is called anorexia. A combination of the two can end up deadly.Even though your question confused me, I did my best on it. Hope it helps.


Well it just means that you are not eating very bad and sugary stuff like candy.
