Is this an eating disorder?

Postby Forgotten » Wed Jul 18, 2012 2:34 am

When I'm upset or stressed.....I tend to eat too much and later pass out.....
and when I'm angry......I get a nose bleed and tend to crave sugar and salt......
I usually crave salt and water but never sugar. I hate sugar.
My doctors say I'm "healthy"
I'm not over weight.....I'm actually losing weight.

When I was 10, I used to starve myself because of the comments I get from people around me. Like,"Hey Fatty!" or "you're fat, and ugly."
I admit. I was very chubby back then. Then, middle school started. I was 4.11 and I weigh 60 pounds. I eat as much as I did when I was in middle school. people say I eat too little. but, I can't eat anymore than that amount.

What do I do?

As long as the doctor says your healthy, your fine.

Everyone enjoys food differently, even if you use it as a coping mechanism, as long as you don't do it so much it's damaging your body, it's ok.

I think Chef_Jess is somewhat right.

But since you recognize your eating behavior as a potential disorder you should perhaps consider to eat healthier in general.

We don't know much about your eating routines but I've also had my fair share of ups and downs regarding food so I know from experience that these minor issues can be solved.

I started eating vegetarian and began working out - that helped a lot. Especially when I stopped eating cheese all the time :P

Well, what really causes of eating disorders are complex and not yet fully understood. Eating disorders are estimated to affect 5-10 million females and 1 million males in the United States. Although not yet classified as separate disorder, binge eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States affecting 3.5% of females and 2% of males according to a study by Harvard affiliated McLean Hospital.
