... "just" about food or weight, there are always underlying issues!
A lot of very skinny (naturally) people develop eating disorders as a reaction to stress or other problems, so it is hardly about their weight, as they are skinny anyway.
A lot of EDs go back on childhood issues, like abuse or your family situation(especially in families where problems are kept silent, strict families, with "perfect little girls", divorces...)etc.
Are you in therapy?
