Can you have an eating disorder without realizing it?

Cause I feel like my body's getting smaller. My boobs are smaller, my butts smaller, everyone's telling me I'm getting really skinny. But I never really made any decision to stop eating or anything. Heck, I'm pretty sure that I still do eat. What's going on with my bod?

Well, I hope you know if you eat or not....if you don't remember then there may be something other than an eating disorder going on.

Most people are aware that they have become obsessed with food (not eating it)...and do what they can to keep others from noticing their avoidance. So yes, I think you'd be very aware of having an eating disorder.

Ok, so if it's not an eating disorder... then what's going on with me? I know I've lost weight. My boss litterally forced 2 candy bars on me last night when I was on my break and told me that I'm wasting away... I seriously just want to know what's going on. It's freaking me out.

What is an eating disorder?

ANSWER #5 of 6

Eating disorders usually involve a lot more than what you've described here. Most people with eating disorders lose the weight because they're doing something intentionally to do so, such as restricting food, purging (throwing it up), or excessively exercising to compensate for the calories they've consumed. It's a disordered eating pattern, usually caused by extremely low self thoughts.

If you're eating normally and don't engage in activities that purposely make you lose weight, there's a very small chance that you do have an eating disorder. Going to a doctor to describe this problem, however, would be what's best for you. This way they can give you a professional diagnosis (which we obviously can't do here), and they can help you with whatever it is that's going on.

I wish you the best of luck with this. Take care.
