That may not be easy, to say the least. Doctors are only human and once they learn that anorexics often do not tell the truth about what they eat, they may just assume that this is more of the same.
This might help: Before you go to your doctor, why don't you try eating a lot more calories. Perhaps you could try 1,000 extra calories. Make your total come to around 3,000 calories per day. Otherwise, your doctor may ask you to try this and you've wasted a visit. If you do it on your own, and it doesn't work, then it's a safe bet that he should be looking for some type of physical malfunction. And if he doesn't have any ideas about what to look for, then it's time to try another doctor.
There are doctors who specialize in digestive disorders. There have been cases where food doesn't get absorbed properly. This type of doctor is called a Gastroenerologist. You might mention it to your doctor and see what he says.
