It depends... Why do they think you have an eating disorder? Have you been loosing wheight lately? If you lost wheight and are under your ideal wheight, there is something wrong with your diet or with your organism and you should seek medical help. If you just lost a little wheight and think your family is being paranoid about it, talk openly to them, show articles explaining what is an eating disorder... I am sure they would understand. Just be sincere to yourself and opened to recognize if you have any kind of problem... Eating disorders can be deadly if not treated!
