Often but not always, but if it becomes a daily habit it could become an eating disorder.
There is no such medical name for it that I could find however everyone is calling it Scab Picking Disorder.
Yes, it can. Anorexia can cause a lot of issues to your vital organs. An irregular heartbeat is possible, which can lead to a lot of complications, one of which being a stroke.
It's functional. Something happened in there life to cause them to say, " i don't think i want to eat anymore, I'm not pretty enough, or I don't deseve to eat." You can alson argue that it is organic because if you are born with chemical imbalances, your brain may lose appetite quickly and tell you to stop eating. Overall, it can be organic or functional if you can give a good argument... I don't know how long ago you posted this but I hope it helps. =)
Do NOT starve yourself; this could be deadly!
Despite the lure of starving (or almost starving) yourself in order to lose a lot of weight in a short amount of time, this is absolutely not a healthy move in the long run. Such behavior can lead to serious disorders such as Bulimia Nervosa and Anorexia Nervosa, which, although they are referred to as "eating disorders," are, in fact, emotional disorders.

I could give you 100 good reasons not to starve yourself. Don't think that it won't happen to you, because it will. I thought that I could go on starving myself forever and never gain a pound. I rolled my eyes when anyone tried to warn me or anyone else. In the end, I got help and I'm much happier.
Please don't starve yourselves. I came so close to almost killing myself because of everything that I went through -- the dieting and then the binging. You will deprive yourself too much and your body will go crazy and eat everything in your house. Please try to hang in there. I know it's hard, but please just try to get help.
Try the healthy method and eat lots of fruit, drink heaps of water, and stay away from the chocolate. Also, partying on the weekends does not help if you require the usual hangover cure of Macca's the next day. Try eating a Caesar salad; i did that, and it felt great. Just please don't starve. You are beautiful and anyone who doesn't see this has the problem -- not you!
Lastly, water. It's so plain. But on those days where there's nothing to do, go jog or do sit-ups. After that, you will crave craving a tall glass of water and then get full on that. Trust me, it's so much healthier!
I don't care if you weigh 200 pounds or if you have a big nose or the worst acne. You are all beautiful. Don't change for anybody; if they can't accept you for you, then they are just not accepting of themselves! You are truly beautiful. That's why God made you who you are. :)
You can eat oatmeal anytime you want and as much as you want; it will fill you up and take away the hunger.
I know it's hard. I hate exercising and getting sweaty, and I still wonder if I should just try skipping meals again. But I know what the consequences will be. I don't want to look like some skinny model; I just don't want a fat stomach. But by starving yourself, and then eating normally, over and over again; or by purging, or constantly starving yourself, you're going to ruin your body even though it'll get thin. I'd rather be a little overweight than lose my entire life to an eating disorder.
In addition, Pilates is excellent for losing weight. You can learn some of the exercises from their infomercials.
And I don't have to tell you how good it feels to eat! I went on a crash diet. It sucked at first, and my stupid stomach wouldn't shut up! I was tired and hungry and I just wanted my favorite foods! But then I got used to it. I held my head higher every day. I was proud of myself for controlling my eating. I got better and better at it. And I got skinnier. You could see it in my face and everywhere else, although it wasn't THAT fast. But, one morning I woke up sick. I panicked. I vomited water. IT WAS AWFUL. But I KEPT GOING. I "stayed strong," and didn't "let myself go." Or so I told myself.
I found ways of not letting people know that I wasn't eating, such as making the dinner while my mum was on her walk and telling her I had already eaten; or dirtying plates to make it look like I had eaten. You get the idea. I kept on and on, until I started to lose less weight than before, but I kept going.
Then, I started to die. Seriously, die. My brain didn't work as well as it used to. I began to get weaker and weaker. I damaged my liver, my kidneys and my heart (emotionally as well as physically). I had been known for my quick wit and imagination. Then I was dying. I put my weight above EVERYTHING. Now I was dying. I couldn't be ME. I COULDN'T BE ME ANYMORE. I was sick and I needed help.
I began to eat. At first, I couldn't. I vomited it. I wanted to eat good food (junk food) but I managed to be strong and only eat fruit, vegetables and grains. I drank soy milk (no lactose). I began to come back to life. I still hated myself for eating at that stage. I thought to myself: "How weak. All that time, wasted. You stupid fat pig." But I began to pray. Although this might sound stupid to some of you, please hear me out.
I prayed: "What the hell am I doing. There ain't anyone listening. Are you going crazy, you...?" But I kept praying, what the hell? And my prayers got answered. I didn't know that would happen. I just didn't know what to do, so I simply prayed. And I got better. I figured how to be how I wanted. And I shared some of that with you before. And I found out that God actually exists. I thought he didn't, but he is there, so there! I am happy now! And I have someone who loves me! He always has, he said, and he always will -- even if I do something really bad. And he told me that it doesn't matter if I am the fattest girl in the UNIVERSE, he still loves me! This blew me away!
So anyway, I'm free, I'm me, I'm happy, I'm not depressed anymore. I am worth something and beautiful to someone, and I think that's all I needed.
In Western nations, women are viewed as more attractive or beautiful if they are thinner. There is also a strong correlation between media, successful women, fashion, and the need to be thin to succeed.
A person can avoid an eating disorder in a few ways. The most important is to have a healthy body image. Maintaing a healthy diet and active lifestyle are important. A person should not obsess over looks or appearances, and not take bullying or teasing to heart. Be proud of who you are as an individual and realize that dieting is not going to change that.
About 1 in every 250 people suffer from anorexia or anorexia-like disorders.
For a girl / woman to have her period, it requires energy (calories) of the body. It also can result in a (minor amount of) blood loss, but there are also many nutrients that are lost with the uterine lining that were there to potentially support a growing fetus. Anorexics place their bodies in a state where the body naturally does not want to "waste" calories or vital nutrients, usually that it is lacking due to poor nutrition / starvation, on "un-needed" bodily functions. It must continue to breathe and pump blood and filter the kidneys, but having a period is not essential. Starvation can also cause hormone problems, which can lead to disrupted or stopped periods.
According to Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 21st ed. Anorexia is the loss of appetite. Anorexia nervosa is a subcategory and describes a psychological disorder.
Functional anorexia means that the person has anorexic tendencies and/or thoughts, but is mentally and physically stable. Many recovering anorexics are functional anorexics.
An anorexic will nto put on weight any faster than a regular person would. It may seem that they gain weight faster, but that is only due to the fact that their body is in a pattern of starvation, so it will try to store any extra food that it can. As soon as a healthy state is reached, weight gain will continue as it would normally for a person.
There are many possible causes of an eating disorder such as anorexia. There is no one reason. Often, many causes join together and lead to the eating disorder. Some common causes are....
* Peer pressure / social pressures
* Media influences
* Low self-esteem
* Dieting gone too far
* Influence / imitation of a family member / friend with an eating disroder
* BDD (Body Dismorphic Disorder)
Some theories exist stating that there may be a genetic or internal cause or link, but nothing in this has been conclusively studied.
You really don't want that, anorexia is a killer disease. It's not like you can choose to turn it off once you've gotten fashionably thin.
Anyone can potentially become anorexic. Those who are more likely are....
*Between the ages of 12 and 26
*Those who live in the Western Hemisphere of the world
*Alcoholic / Drug Addict
*Those who suffer from low self-esteem, depression, BDD (Body Dismorphic Disorder), low self body image, ect.
*Friends who suffer from similar eating disorder
*White / Caucasian
*From an upper- or middle-class family

Not at all. What you consider "emo" is actually just scene or scene kids. Emo is a sub-genre of music that has long died out and has been bastardized by the mainstream media to anything that is a man who is feminine by wearing tight pants, eye liner, and sings about his girlfriend (or boyfriend) breaking up with him.
Your body goes into crisis mode Your health is seriously compromised
You may form a habit of using this ill-advised weight-loss method
Doctors and dieticians recommend losing weight gradually, allowing a whole month for every 4 to 8 pounds you want to lose. Do not starve yourself, or skip meals, or try throwing up.
Here's a program for the period in which you want to lose weight:
Try to get plenty of moderate aerobic exercise (intense exercise may damage your joints). It isn't essential to join a gym; you can do sit-ups, pushups, dumbbell-lifting, jumping-jacks, and many other basic exercises at home. Walk as much as possible. Bicycling and swimming are good too. Even for people who are not trying to lose weight, being active helps your digestion, your circulation, and other body processes.
Even more important than exercise, is avoiding junk foods and sweetened drinks such as soda. Try to avoid refined flour and pasta, processed foods, fried foods, and fatty cuts of meat. Preferably consume no added sugar, and as little added salt as possible.
Our great-grandparents didn't have the epidemic of obesity we see today, because they had a less-sedentary lifestyle, a much more natural diet, and they ate reasonably-sized portions.
Eat 3 not-large-portioned meals per day; do not skip breakfast; and avoid sugary snacks. If you want a snack, try (for example) an apple or a handful of unsalted nuts.
Limit your calories (best to consult a doctor or nutritionist concerning the amount), and weigh yourself at the same time each day, 2-3 times per week. If you see your weight diminishing at a safe, reasonable rate (1-2 pounds/week), keep it up.
Once you've reached your goal, increase your calorie intake somewhat, so that you can maintain your present weight. And you can then have small amounts of sweetened foods or junk food on occasion (if at all), along with your regular healthy foods. But keep checking your weight 2-3 times/week.
Avoid crash-diets, fad diets, diet pills, etc. These may be harmful, and need not be considered by people who have adopted an otherwise healthy diet.
Don't concentrate on specific foods so much as on a balanced, healthy diet plus exercise.
Healthy nutrition means eating what your body needs, while ingesting as few harmful things as possible. It has also been described as getting enough of each of the major food categories, in healthy forms (grains, fruits, vegetables, protein, dairy, etc.; plus plenty of water).
In general, an example of a healthy starting point could be a menu of whole-grain foods and bread, a good amount of vegetables, legumes, some fruits and nuts, fish, lean meats in not-large amounts, and some dairy. However, this may need adjusting according to one's lifestyle, age, health, weight and other factors at the outset; and also later, as one sees what works for him/her in particular.
Also...whenever you feel queasy, nauseous, constipated or otherwise not completely well, try to remember what you've eaten over the last several hours or the last day. This is one factor in adjusting one's food habits.
After the 50-Day-Plan on the ABC diet, most will go to their own restrctive diets or will just begin the 50-Day-Plan again. The ABC diet is extremely dangerous and unhealthy, though, and is not recommended to be followed.
Fast but you will probably die.
The best way to relieve this is to gargel with salt water, it will dry out the phlegm. On the other hand, why would you want to??? As inconvenient as it may seem, these are the processes that your body is using to overcome the sickness. Nobody likes diarrhea, right? That, however, is the body's way of flushing out toxins or poisons from the body in the quickest way posible. This situation is no different. The body is merely trying to rid itself of that which burdens it...in any way possible. The harder you fight your body's infinite wisdom, the harder you make it for yourself.
