How can you tell if someone has an eating disorder?

It’s impossible to tell if someone has an eating disorder just by looking at them. However, there are a number of warning signs that can indicate that someone has an eating disorder. Some common signs include eating very little or not at all, intense fear of weight gain, obsessively counting calories or grams of food, excessive exercise, regularly vomiting or using laxatives, and mood swings or changes in behavior. If you notice that someone you know seems to be struggling with their eating habits, it is important to reach out for help.
