After many years I have finally realized that I have a borderline eating disorder. I guess I've know it for years but I've never really wanted to admit it. But I'm really scared now there are days where ill go without eating just water and many some candy The scary thing is that I don't miss the food I don't feel the hunger pains. It's not that I I'm think I'm fat I'm actually happy with how I look but there are days where just looking at food makes me nauseous it could be my favorite food in the world but just one bite makes me feel like throwing up or I'll just get full looking at the plate. At first I would just skip breakfast but its gotten to the point where days will pass without me touching a plate of food .I don't know what to do I've told my mother but she just brushed it off and won't take it seriously I seriously don't know what to do please can someone help me I've tried to eat more often but I just can't stomach the food and I'm really scared how can I deal with issue by myself ?

I'm suspecting your liver is weak so you're not detoxifying well enough. That will make you more sensitive to toxin odors in food or that environment (cigarette smoke, car exhaust). You'll have to give it the raw material to rebuild it. Avoid all excitotoxins (MSG, aspartame, saccharine) as they number your sense of taste and make it impossible to tell what your body wants you to eat. Treat emotional and other dyscomfort symptoms first before eating (depression, pain, etc). Start with some N-acetyl cystine and weak vitamin C solution to start your liver working better. Drink water with or without electrolytes. If your body is tired, sleep, feels like it needs air open a window, breathe and walk around, thirsty, sleep. Give it whatever it tells you too. Read a good book that covers superfoods like Joel Furhaman's Eat for Health and go shopping (clean chicken liver, kale, fish oil, etc). You'll need to eat dilute portions, dilute liquids and small portions. Pause when eating and eat what has the greatest appetite. Avoid saturated fat, trans fat, and olive oil. Nuts are good superfoods-they have a lot of minerals. Seeds and whole grains have a chemical called phytate that sticks to minerals so avoid them or never eat them with minerals. The best person to see is an integrative MD with experience in nutrition. Hard to tell you everything in a paragraph. As you get stronger food will taste better. Allow yourself to eat, it's the only way to get better. With all the environmental toxins fat is your body's way to reduce the toxin load, it dissolves in the fat so it won't hurt you. Don't let other people dictate what you look like. It's better to feel good and be a little chubby than a dead skinny corpse. Don't eat a lot of grains and starch in general. You want a nice low insulin diet with plenty of fiber. Good luck.0
