Craig Holiday’s Interview With Michelle Myers
There are warning signs to be aware of regarding anorexia.

  1.  When weight drops below 85%-90% of the normal weight recommended for your height.  (Also children and teens should be gaining weight as they grow and mature.  Even if you don’t notice rapid weight loss during adolescence, lack of weight gain could be a warning sign as well.
  2. Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat.  (Pay attention to how they behave around people with weight problems.  Most people will not come out and admit a fear of being fat, but you can learn a lot by seeing how they treat people who are overweight.)
  3. Constantly thinking about food.  (Calorie counting, spending abnormal amounts of time reading books and magazines about nutrition, planning all meals in advance, refusing to eat anything without knowing exactly what is in it, spending so much time talking and thinking about food, but never branching out and eating anything out of their set routine.)
  4. Menstrual cycle disappears.  (Body fat is not high enough for their body to ovulate.  If a woman couples anorexic behavior with obsessive exercise, loss of menstrual cycle may occur before reaching a dangerous weight due to their high activity level.)
  5. Distorted perception of body image.  (Complaining about certain body parts or the way their clothes fit, comparing themselves to others, insisting that they need to lose weight, etc.)
