Red Flags for Anorexia nervosa

There are some things that you will need to watch out in your friends and in your relatives. If you find this in them, you really need to look into the possibility of the person suffering Anorexia nervosa.

You should also look into how long they take their food. Some would go the distance of slicing everything when the food is already tender. Others, still, goes to the extent of spitting the food and pretend that it is way too hard.

When you see your friend complaining that they are fat when they are already half your size, you have to check if it is you who is too fat or her who is already very thin.
