Question I'm okay...right? - December 8th 2010, 04:28 AM

I don't eat much. Maybe I'll have an apple in a day. I'm just never hungry though. I hate my figure. To an extreme extent. But I wouldn't do anything dangerous about it. I think I'm okay. But my friends always look at me weird when they're eating lunch and I'm not. My parents always try to push food on me and when I say I'm not hungry they tell me I don't need to lose weight. I'm not trying to starve myself and I'm a healthy person. But everyone always commenting on my eating habits is starting to confuse mr about them. Do I have something wrong me?

An apple a day would not be able to give you the proper nutrients or caloric intake to satisfy your daily requirements. If you truly are not hungry and it's not some sort of ED, then there may be several factors that are influencing it. It could be a physical issue where something is affecting your appetite such as an endocrine disorder and you would want to get that looked into. It could also be stress or depression-related.

If you have to ask if there's something wrong with you, chances are, there's something wrong. If you're only eating a small amount each day, then I would advise getting help sooner rather than later.

Take care.

How can I be sure if it's an eating disorder or not? I used to be pro Ana a few years ago but I got better before it wrecked me. So I know how the anorexic mindset feels and this isn't like that. I'm not (and I'm being completely honest) obsessed with what I do/don't eat. But even when I'm hungry I don't really eat. But I don't think about it...
