As somebody with very little knowledge on eating disorders, and no family history of eating disorders, i could do with some advice.

To give some back story, my boyfriend broke up with me early October after 3 years being together. It was very out of the blue, and like most people, i took it very badly. I lost all appetite and didn't maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Since then, i have lost nearly 2 stone and gone from a size 10/12 to an 8. I start to feel stressed and even guilty if i eat more than one meal a day, and subconsciously have been drinking a lot more fluid to subside hunger. I was never particularly unhappy with how i looked, but i feel myself looking in the mirror more frequently and weighing myself obsessively. I know what I'm doing to myself, but it's like a mental block in my head telling me what i should/ shouldn't eat. Because i've always loved all food! Is this something I should have concern for , thankyou in advance x

It sounds like your weight loss was what is known as the Heartache diet but you’ve gone a step further, you need to see your GP and tell them how you are feeling. 💐
