I'm not sure if I have an eating disorder or not, I hate putting on weight, I feel terrible if i gain any so I don't eat as much. I quit eating breakfast ( I just can't eat in the mornings ) I do eat lunch but my portions have gotten smaller and dinner has too. I get busy and forget I'm hungry and I try to do whatever to distract myself lately. I've been super stressed and just ..... Idk... either way, I'm afraid to put on any weight because I am very afraid of becoming obese. I'm not saying I want an eating disorder but I just don't wanna eat as much anymore :(

Eating disorders tend to be much more severe- they don't consider what I have an eating disorder, and it's almost landed me in the hospital/an early grave in general several times before. I've had to call in sick from work due to binges gone horribly wrong.

HOWEVER, this doesn't mean you don't have a problem. I would watch yourself, your mood and your habits for a while. IF YOU STOP EATING, OR IT GETS WORSE, PLEASE GET MEDICAL HELP.

Update : I've gotten worse :( I've shrunk down my portions in food. I don't eat breakfast, I eat lunch, a small lunch and I have a small dinner and I eat a small snack at about 12 am. I've actually lost some weight and I'm continuing to drop :( I'm depressed and I don't feel like eating either.

First, how much are you eating per meal? Also how much do you weigh? That could help us tell if it is a disorder or not

Dude, for real....you need to eat more. Your 15 and 87lbs. You don't need to downsize your portions...you need to upsize. In my opinion that's almost unhealthy for you. You should at least be 100lbs. Don't be afraid of becoming obese.. You should put on a little bit more weight. 87sounds extremely low.

The double digit weight is the real concern here, unless you're like below 5'2 it's not okay. I mean it's definitely a difficult thing to deal with but you don't actually need to loose anything. My advice is bump up your portions (with a lot of protein) and start working out to build muscle mass, you'll be at a healthier weight, look more healthy, and because you're working out there won't really be a risk of obesity (not that you're anywhere close to at risk). It's a hard thing to do but just try to gradually switch to a healthier way of life

Best advice.


At your size, you would have to be like 215 pounds to be obese. You don't need to worry about becoming overweight any time soon.

Its not all that low and honestly, if you saw me on the street, you wouldn't think I'm 87 pounds, I'm hollow in a way if that makes any sense and I was 70 pounds most last year so this is an improvement but I refuse to let myself get fat, that's just a big fear I have

Raised said than done, I can't exactly just go to a gym and even if I wanted to gain weight, my metabolism would just burn it all up :/ if I drink some of those juice I have, it makes it sky rocket and I've been drinking a lot of that , I'm not 87 pounds atm but if I eat, I'll go back up.

Best advice.

Yeah..gaining weight can be quite embarrasing and worrying for a guy who has been skinny all his life. I went thro the same.
When I was 13/14 I was stick skinny. I had a small girlish face, puny body, 6pak abs, limbs were virtual sticks ..by 16 puberty hit & within lyk 1.5 yrs my waist gone from 25 in to 36, face has plumped up, , I've developed a bubble butt too....and I have gone from 48 kg to 65 kg at 5 foot 11......... nw I have a small tummy roll, cannot run etc like when I was skinny, and have sm man-boobies....But my GF who has been with me since I used to be skinny really comforted me....she eased my stress by joking abt my tummy, appreciating my enjoy my "skinny-fat", plumpy body to my skinny body I used to have........she loves to rub my lil belly (esp after during/after a hearty meal) if I am slow to finish my portion....., She cannot keep her hands off my butt and lovess to tease about mw weight gain......she does nt mind me gaining a bit more.!!!!

Still I am not totall comfortable with not being skinny...I feel very self conscious and revealed whn I change for sports & whn hanging out on a warm day undressed, or whn take an impromptu dip in da pool/fountain in my undies with frnds / family.. I try to keep a tank top on now.

I am looking at your picture now, you're as skinny as a rake. You really don't need to lose any weight.

You probably don't meet all the diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder, just because the criteria tend to be very strict. However, you definitely have a problem, which could evolve into a diagnosable eating disorder. That, combined with your already low weight, is cause for concern. You need to get professional help.

I'm very aware that I'm thin and about a year ago i worried that i had some disorder because i just was never hungry and didn't like eating. that feeling just mysteriously went away over a few months and now i feel like i eat normally. I suppose it's easy to have some kind of eating problem but only if it gets serious is it really a "disorder"
