Anorexia/Bulimia: Symptoms 1

There are a lot of symptoms that are associated with anorexia and bulimia. It may be extremely difficult for some to know exactly what they should look for. There are a few things that you can look for that you may not have known before. The obvious symptom that everyone knows to look for is a person having a dramatic drop in their weight in an extremely short period of time. Now when this happens, it may be very hard to tell because when a person realizes they are losing weight or that they “might” lose weight, they want to hide it from everyone. This is so that no one can tell they have a problem with eating. Wearing clothes that are way too big for them or maybe bagging can be something to look for. It can be very hard to tell, but try looking at their face and around their neck if you can. These are key areas that show significant weight loss.
