Facts
She was the smallest kid in her grade but she thought that her thighs and stomach were huge. By the age of eight, she started worrying about weight. When she was 12, she ate high carb. and high fat food and also refused meat. At age 16, she stopped eating. She lost seven pounds in a week and soon weighed 88 lbs. In the end, she was hospitalized for depression and anorexia.
Binge Eating: when a person eats a lot of food in a short period of time
85% tend to be female
64% are at the normal weight range
Usually at a younger age - as young as 6
The people usually know that their patterns are irregular
If she was happy, she ate. If she was sad, she ate. Sometimes she would just go to the fridge and stare at it until she found something she wanted, and ate it. At night, she would sneak food to her room, and ate it. It took her 30 years to control her eating habits. Now, she leads a healthy life style.
Bulimia: the act of overeating and then purposely throwing it up or taking laxatives
She was really into diving and had to maintain a weight of 100 lbs. This meant losing 23 pounds. For an active girl like her, this was too low. She lost the 23 lbs, but in doing so, she became obsessed with calories. Only eating an apple would cause her to want to throw it up, so she would. It ruined her life and diving career.
