Subtle signs of eating disorders

The first signs of an eating disorder can be really subtle. You have to pay attention. Those signs can be your daughter is skipping meals, she's not finishing her food, she says she's full, her clothes are hanging loose, she's wearing an extra sweatshirt. When you ask her, usually these girls have a lot of excuses as to why they are not eating or why they are wearing an extra sweatshirt. It is really important not to ignore these early warning signs. The longer these patterns exist and become entrenched, the harder the eating disorder is to treat. You really want to nip this one in the butt.
