See PCP first.: See your pcp first and eliminate other reasons for being underweight, like hormone tests including thyroid tests and if you have a true eating disorder he can then refer you to a psychiatrist, endocrinologist or gastroenterologist.

Why ?: How much you think is the normal weight for your..Age ? How much you actually weight? To not feel hungry most times does not necessarily mean you have an eating disorder. Any other symptoms of eating disorders? Consult a dr and clarify this, please; it will not hurt.
