Hi all, don't know if I'm posting in the right section but I have a query. What does it mean if a person doesn't want to strave but prefers to go long periods without eating or feel better for not eating? is this is a sign of an ed or just someone who's body conscious when it comes to their weight?
It does sound like a control issue of some sort. I have a friend like this, he only eats certain foods and go up to 3 days on just cups of tea. He's been that way for 20+ years, and has a 28 inch waist. We've spoke about it several times and it never makes a difference to him. He knows its odd to eat this way but its just how he is
Ah okay because my understanding of an ed was someone who doesn't want to eat at all if possible but this isn't like that. If a person does have those habits of only eating certain foods and going for long periods without eating, when do you know if they need or help or not? Or isit something that can't be diagnosed?
