Am I anorexic ?

my friends think I have anorexia just because at school I don't eat lunch. I told my very best friend about my eating habits, and she thinks so too. I allow myself 400 cal a day, which is a good amount I think. yes, I have been doing it to lose weight and I've lost 4 pounds. I don't think Im anorexic though. btw: I'm 13 and my bmi is 12.9.I think I am too big though and would like to lose 6 more pounds. thx, and please don't be rude. this is serious. x

I can relate, I also don't eat lunch at school. I don't really do it to lose weight, I do it because I'm afraid of gaining weight, so I try to eat less. I'm not sure if I am anorexic or not, so I don't want to judge you or say you are/aren't. Good luck.

400 calories is not enough. But I wouldn't say you're anorexic, I would say you eat very unhealthy. I even skip lunch and breakfast sometimes, and I'm definitely not anorexic. But it does sound like you should eat more. And by the way, you're picture looks alot like Brooke from Dance Moms!

Depends if u are eating breakfast and dinner, or at least two to three meals a day. if not, then maybe u should tell someone that u think u have a problem. I know this could be embarrassing, but just take ur parents/guardian and tell her that u haven't been eating muh and u think u r overweight. im sure u r not over weight, because if u were than u would be in a much bigger issue or problem than u just explained. do not take any offense to these people who are answering, they r either really trying to help or trying tp make u feel bad or be funny. one thing to keep in ur mind is that u should never ever not tell people about these things, people that u trust, because anorexia is a big deal and no one should think of themselves in such a bad manner, u r who u r, u were made to be this way. (PS u don't want to be a twig, that's way less attractive. im not just saying that, boys like curves)

Hon, here's the deal. Set aside the fact that you may or may not have anorexia at the moment, and realize that you are depriving your body of vital nutrients eating only 400 cal a day. That is HORRIBLE for your health. This calculator should show you the calories you need to be having daily and such:

That aside, please just eat healthily (green/black tea with honey, water, fruits, veggies, whole grain. Y'know.) and exercise to lose weight. You may have anorexia or maybe you're just trying to lose a certain amount of weight and will stop once you reach the weight you want. Either way, what you're doing now isn't good for your body. Lose weight in a healthy manner, and you'll get even better results.
Good luck! :)

400 calories a day? Why would you think this is healthy? You sound like a smart girl...one who is trying to get attention from your friends, in a pretty awful way.

I'm not trying to get attention..why would you think that.

I used to be the same way in school and at that age... Looking back i wish i had eaten more calories throughout the day at that age. because food is fuel and it actually speeds up your metobolism. You have only lost 4 lbs because your metobolism is actually slowing down and your body is using muscle as fuel.(Which is VERY bad) Try snacking 5-6 times a day.

Yes you are anorexic and the way you are eating isn't good. You need to talk with your doctor about the recommended daily calorie intake you need because 400 calories per day is not a good number to be dieting. I can only imagine what you eat for breakfast and dinner if your even eating one or the other. What your doing to yourself is serious. Please seek help from your doctor immediately.

dieting isn't anorexia. I don't eat lunch at school either, but for a different reason, but you should let yourself eat more calories. if u wanna lose weight, exercise and just do portion control, don't just pretty much stop eating, because that's super unhealthy
