    I usually only eat 100 calories a day.

    I will feel horrible if I eat any more than that. It makes me happy when I don't eat. I really don't know why. I just love the feeling of my stomach being empty.

    At the moment I only go 24 hours without food. My mum makes me dinner and I have to eat it. Eating makes me feel sick and guilty. I'm always irritated and moody, but deep down I like being in control.

    about my eating habits and is a nutritionist. She's started me on this plan to help me "lose the weight while staying healthy" it includes me having to eat over a thousand calories daily, obviously not immediately. I want to. I just don't think I can.
