Social Rants By Billy Delmar

Eating disorders are very popular among teenage girls and women in their college years. It’s also become more popular among boys. These disorders should never be taken lightly. It can lead to severe healthy conditions and even reach the point of threatening one’s life. How do you know what you or someone that you know may have an eating disorder? Here are 5 signs to tell:

  1. From fit to baggy clothes

You’ll see your fashion style change from wearing fit to baggy clothes. When you get too skinny, your clothes will be too big for your body. Also, because you’re already too conscious with the changes in your body, you’ll prefer to wear baggy than tight clothes. You may even start borrowing clothes from other family members.

  1. Eating secretly

A person who has an eating disorder doesn’t eat the entire day. He or she prefers to eat late at night when no one else is watching. If you’ve been doing this, then you should be alarmed. Also, if you suspect that someone you know is bulimic, check the fridge before you sleep and re-check it in the morning to see if lots of foods are already missing.

  1. Irregular eating schedule

Someone who has an eating disorder has an irregular eating schedule. It’s so different from everyone else’s schedule. If you find yourself not eating at the usual times, you may have an eating disorder. If someone you know eats ahead of everyone or prefers to eat an hour after everybody finishes their meal, you have to know why.

  1. Lack of energy

People with eating disorders are too tired to do pretty much everything. They only become energetic when it’s time to hit the gym. It seems that the gym is the only thing that can energize them. Again, it’s because of their desire to lose more weight. Feel the same way? You may have an eating disorder too.

  1. Love to criticize others

Do you love to criticize others for the food they’re eating? It’s a sign that you have an eating disorder. Someone with an eating disorder is too conscious with the food they eat, and they can’t help but criticize others who eat too much and those who eat unhealthy food.

They may mean that you or someone else has an eating disorder. It’s important to seek help right away. You just can’t ignore the condition. Remember that you can always lose weight and have a great figure without starving yourself, binging and throwing up, or taking laxatives. These disorders can be dangerous. Instead of having a healthy body, you might just put your life into jeopardy.
