lately, a lot of my friends have been telling me im anorexic, and I thought they were just joking, but its happened too much to just be coincedence.

im 5 foot 8, 120 pounds and I have a 27 inch waist. (im male btw)

Ive always thought of myself as fat, or at least quite chubby, and i diet a lot.

I just dont know whether to believe them or not...

Yes. You are. I suggest seeking proffesional help. This isn't something to joke about.

Anorexic is when you dont eat due to fear of being fat. Do you eat?

look at the size of the pants you are wearing, then look at someone else who wears that same size pant and realize you are that small.
It is hard to get over, and if you are that worried you are best to talk to a professional about it.


And it is not necessary not eating, it is only eating an orange all day, compulsive exercising, constanly weighing yourself, not eating andthing bad, which maybe a piece of meat that is lean cos in your head you will put on weight. Be careful if that is the case.


Otherwise you may have a really really fast metabolism, and arent having enough food to keep up with it so are losing it cos of that.

How old are you? when I was about 15-16 i had grown from about 5"2 to 5"8 and it made me look really lanky... if that's why, your weight will probably even out. You are anorexic if you think you're fat and starving yourself, not because other people tell you you are.

ur actual height and weight is fine, ur just skinny, like millions of ppl (including me: 6'1'' and 145pounds and a non existent waste). however dieting isnt really clever when ur skinny like tht (unless thts why ur skinny), and actually thinking ur chubby certainly isnt healthy. would seea doctor just for a chat anyway.

You are underweight. If you look at yourself in the mirror and see yourself as 'chubby", then you may have a problem. Either discipline yourself to eat more, of see a nutritionist or something. And don't diet ffs.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Yeah, you may be fooling yourself into thinking you aren't. You are definitely anorexic. Schedule a doctor's appointment now. But before that, don't change your eating habits suddenly, increase your intake a little bit, but not too much.

one meal a day thing? no wonder they think you're anorexic.

27 isn't ridiculously small but if you think you are fat at that yeah you have some sort of problem... i'm 6'4" and have a 28" waist but i eat shitloads, i just have a really fast metabolism. Depends how much you eat/how quickly you're body deals with it


Edit - yeah, one meal a day = you're anorexic, seriously eat more and you'll be much healthier

I don't know if it helps but I'm 5'9" and weigh just over 10 stone (140lbs I think) with a 30" waist.

Most nutrition guides suggest three to five meals per day, (depending on the size of the meal) in order to keep healthy metabolic processes.

Dude I am 5'8 and 120 pounds and I know I am skinny as hell. I eat 2 meals per day (don't have time for breakfast) and I eat a SHIT load of junk food. I work out to try to make myself bigger but it just doesn't work....I just have skinny genes I guess.

Edit: I just measured my waist because you guys made me curious and I got 29 inches.

But really it's cos she got fat!

I'm 6'1 and i only weigh 130, and im certainly not anorexic. There's a very real chance that you are, but don't go jumping to conclusions too quickly - your metabolism can do funny things when you're still in your teens. I recommend you just see a doctor about it, either way you'll get help.

Same.

6'2. Less than 9 stone. Can eat loads and I don't put on weight. Also do a fair bit of exercise, and still, underweight.

At least I'm gaining weight. Was at the point were, if I was in Africa, I'd get humanitarian aid.

I'm 5'9 and have a 28" Waist, but i'm definitely not anorexic, although I do only have two meals a day, for some reason i find it sickly eating in the morning.

If you look in the mirror and think you're chubby if you have a 27" Waist then my guess is you're anorexic, but im no doctor lol.

You might as well go to a doctor just to check it out dude, but even if you are I wouldn't get too worried, you obviously realise you may have a problem and that's meant to be the hardest part about these types of things isnt it?

Good luck x

Well get a doctors opinion all the same. They may be able to convince you you are thin.


EDIT: oh and everyone saying ' I eat like a horse but don't gain weight'... yeah, how old are you? its because you're growing upwards, not outwards. When you reach your full height you'll put on weight. Ever hear the expression lanky teenager?

Maybe you're a hypochondriac. Last week didn't you make a thread and you were wondering what was wrong with you and everyone said you had AIDS or Cancer and now, you're anorexic?

Oh, well shit there's your answer. Go to a doctor and tell him/her what's up and EAT.

I'm 18 and I am pretty sure I am close to my full height.
#37
For your height you should be at least 140 pounds (and even that's cutting it).

I don't think it's healthy for you to consider yourself chubby. Better to tackle the problem earlier than late.

If you're questioning yourself already, then you're half way there.

Good luck man!

you think your fat, you eat once a day, you almost faint due to starvation. sounds like a problem to me. instead of not eating, why dont you eat alot and go to the gym. therefore, you wont be unhealthy(skinny + underfed) you can be "athletic," which is thin but muscular. its a good way to go plus you are missing out on some delicious food out there.
