This question is a bit “loaded”. Is she an athlete? Does she have a diet with lots of fruits, veggies and lean meats? Is her weight stable, increasing or decreasing? Is she concerned with her weight? Does she come from an affluent type A family? Does she have body image distortion? Is she interested in calorie counting and why? Is there a concerning family history? These answers will help!
