Re: anorexic people

If you are suspecting that you're suffering from an eating disorder here are some signs: you're preoccupied with food, calories, have a distorted body image (think you're very fat when in fact you're normal or thin), don't eat enough, purge or binge.

If you suspect someone else is suffering from an eating disorder, it's more difficult to tell: the person could be losing/gaining a lot of weight quickly, the person is afraid to eat in front of people, calculates calories, expresses thought about dislike of their body.

Well, to read your question, tells me you are concerned for someone.

To answer your question from a recovering anorexic point of view - it is a daily fight!

1). Avoidance of foods types and calorie counting ;
2). Avoidant of social gathering with fear of food being present ;
3). Wearing of baggy clothing to hide thinness ;
4). Mood swings ;
5). Lying and deception surrounding food and fear of getting caught out ;
6). Exclusion from people in general ;
7). Excessive exercising. ;
8). Some use diet pills etc ;
9). Difficulty holding relationships due to severity of disorder.

Just some things to look out for.
Hope this helps you

In small proportions we just beauties see, in small measures life my perfect be!
