In brief: Trying to be healthy

Often, the development of an ED is insidious.
Just trying to eat more healthy, lose a few pounds. Then it kicks in. Eating disorders are pretty easy to reverse when caught early- once they become entrenched it is much more difficult. If you feel it coming on, don't wait. If you think you might be getting one, you are probably getting one.
