Is restricting your intake significantly, eating and then working out to burn as much as possible considered to be disordered eating? I always feel guilty when I do eat after a fast so I workout a lot :/

As soon as you let a bad relationship with food affect your eating habits then you are treading on dangerous ground, especially if you are still growing.

Whether or not you'd be diagnosed with an actual eating disorder or not would depend on other factors too, but the definition of an eating disorder is 'abnormal or disturbed eating habits' soo sounds like the situation you're describing.

Remember that to stay healthy you just need to keep a balanced diet and do some exercise everyday, starving your body only makes it weaker.

If you're really concerned about your diet talk to your doctor to work out a plan to help with food, please don't let this spiral out of control because eating disorders can turn into real life nightmares.

You're appearance does not define you or determine your worth. You are still precious to everyone because of who you are.

Stay healthy and safe
