In brief: Many things
There is a gentic component at times, traumas of all kinds can precipitate it, especially sexual abuse and even supposedly well meaning teasing as a child can hurt to the point that an eating disorder will develop.
Women are more likely to develop eating disorders. Eating disorders that occur post-partum are fairly common as well. Learning the cause and getting help asap is imperitive to recovery.
