If someone was meeting up with me, I'd want to be treated like a normal person regardless of my issues. As for meals, when it comes time to eat something I guess you should mention it to her. How long are you going to be with her? If you are staying together for a couple of days, then obviously you will have to eat at some point during that time. I think the best bet is to encourage her to eat, but not be overly pushy about it.

Have you tried talking to her about this? See what she has to say, see how things like meals will be handled while y'all are staying together.

I'd talk to her. Like Amanda Kate said, if I had an eating disorder, I'd want to be treated like any person who doesn't have one.

There is an article with it on here :]

I'd ask her if she wanted to eat and suggest that she joins you - but do not force her
