  • I think I have anorxia
    I am overweight
    I mean my weight is 75 kg
    When I eat more I puke it
    I feel dizzyness
    I always feeling sleepy

  • The majority of this video talks about signs and symptoms and about 10 seconds on treatment! I need help identifying treatment. Where to get it, how, to guide a young adult towards it and how to implement it. We know an anorexic needs to eat, but how????

  • BMI calculators are bullshit, because they dont count the muscle mass, also reducing food intake is often called “caloric deficit” which without it is impossible to lose weight

  • I think i have anorexia because i don’t have my period for 2 months, i also take just 700 calories per day and have a 45min workout. i do it excessive workout and super restrictive diet. What should i do to stop this on my own? pls help me

  • I have been on and off again with anorexia physically, but it’s always been with me mentally. I am 24, and it all started my first day of Kindergarten (had a classmate who was morbidly obese, and I swore I wasn’t going to be like her). I’m pretty sure the “brain damage” and behavioral issues I have gained from these are irreparable.:(

  • I got diagnosed with atypical anorexia. I feel so invalid like because I’m not underweight even though I constantly restrict my intake. I struggle with this every single day but no one takes me serious because of my weight. This makes me feel like I have to lose more weight before I can get help

  • How I got it was my friend suggested a fast we could do for fun and I did it for a week and suddenly got obsessed with it now I practically starve my self like if my mum asks me if I have had anything to eat I Will say yes when I haven’t the longest I have gone is 2 weeks do u think I have it ( I also am dropping weight but I think I’m fat)

  • My BMI is 15.26, but I’m healthy xD My weight is 40kg and my height is 1.62m (2.62m when multiplied by itself). I’m not anorexic, I’m just a picky eater xD.

  • so i’m like really skinny and underweight and i have a lot of the symptoms but i still dont really know if i have it. so can someone help me out. Its the same thing with anxiety like i have everything that someone with anxiety has but Im not technically diagnosed with it.

  • Anorexia is when people do not eat food for many many years even if they still have an obsessed weight and are overweight and cannot loose weight. the anorexic only drink water and cannot loose weight because of anorexic disease and lack of food! for example a lady is 50stones and she does not eat for three years and she did not loose any weight and is just living alone without family or wedding! The lady needs better exercise routines and better fruits less protein!

  • 6 years ago I started to develop bulimia, I gained a lot of weight from that but I couldn’t stop it and nobody would actually care enough to discuss it, last year someone told me I could lose 20kg so I’ll be more pretty and it got so stuck in my head my bulimia switched to anorexia. I started to buy my own food, not eat with my family, at first eat only 600cal a day and now I’m down to 300, even better if I’m under…I lost those 20kg in not even a year and even while I was in high stress I gained only 5kg and now lost them all in two weeks…I’m feeling bad 24/7, fainting, feeling like I’m gonna puke even tho nothing is in my body, I look all day long at my body to make sure I’m not so disgusting but everytime I look I feel worse and feel like I shouldn’t eat anymore. I used to be overweighted and now I’m in a normal weight, which is why people usually compliment me for losing so fast cause they think I’m healthy now. The truth is that my weight doesn’t say anything about it I’m healthy or not, I don’t eat and if I lost 5kg in two weeks in another month I’ll be underweight, and nobody will care again cause for them anorexia is only for skeletons that are dying and not people who just suddenly lose a lot of weight

  • I disagree with this on so many levels. Anorexia is “about” your body, but it’s also ABOUT your relationship with food. Your weight doesn’t define whether or not you have anorexia. Sometimes it’s about control, too.

    Not all anorexics are skinny
    Not all anorexics work out
    Not all anorexics hate their bodies
    All anorexics are valid.

    I’m well aware y’all are gonna roast me, or this comment is just gonna go unseen, but I had to throw my opinion out there. Take it as you will.

  • Remember that not eating for a long time and then you eat a little after few days can cause gas/ air in your stomach which will make your stomach big

    Not sure if it’s true but I heard it somewhere

  • Please never use the term “women” to describe those who menstruate, or females in general. Not all women menstruate (or have the organs to menstruate), and some men menstruate (and have the organs to do so). Using women to describe females is cisnormative and transphobic.

  • The thing a lot of ignorant people get stuck on is that just because you’re diagnosed with Anorexia, doesn’t mean you gotta be thin and bones to be diagnosed with it. You can still have plenty of fat on you but still be Anorexic because of the symptoms.

  • is there anybody else going through what i am going through because i feel i am the only one. i began to starve myself and i developed an underactive thyroid that somehow made me gain weight. i barely even eat anything, just fruit and vegetables if they’re on my plate. i hate everything i literally am cursed this happens to nobody else but me. i weigh more than what i used to when i dont even eat shit anymore. i am so unlucky and i don’t even understand how this is scientifically possible. i don’t even get hungry but i have 100-400 calories every day. what is wrong with my body?

  • I don’t know if I have anorexia because I don’t like my weight and I try to stay under 2000 calories but I try to not eat a lot just mainly drink water everyone says I’m “thin/skinny” but I think I’m so fat but I don’t cut my food into tiny pieces I just don’t know I’m 12 about to be 13 and I weight 106.5 I’m also 5’4 to me I want to lose more weight if anyone can will you give me your thought just don’t be mean��❤️��
