Diet & Nutrition : How to Tell if Someone Is Anorexic

August 17, 2019


This is Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami
Beach, Florida. In this clip, we’re going to talk about how you can tell if someone
is anorexic. Now, first, anorexia nervosa refers to an eating disorder, and it’s when
somebody basically severely limits their caloric intake and usually it involves a major cutback
of all protein and of essential fatty acids or fats in the diet. As far as identifying
anorexics, I have been working with anorexics for many years and have also had friends who
have been anorexic, so I’ve really gotten to see the up close and personal. And one
thing that you’ll always notice about anorexics is that they are very, very intelligent, typically,
and they typically are very, very in tune with every single thing that they’re eating.
So people who have kind of an obsession with food. Other factors are that most anorexics
will eat small, small quantities and sort of graze throughout the day on a little bit
of food so it actually does look like they’re eating, yet when you add it all together,
it’s not very much. Another thing about anorexics is that often they get on their… on their
body, they get this layer of hair that almost looks like fur, and it actually stands out
on the edge of their skin in order to help create another layer of insulation that they
miss from their healthy fats. So if you have someone that may be anorexic in your life,
it’s definitely important that you zero in and work with a nutritionist to help them
in the best way that you can. This has been Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.

  1. My best friend is very skinny, the problem is she still eats candy and stuff like that. She also eats her meals but they are half of an average portion. She definately is intelligent, and she epilates her arms (which now seems very suspicious lol).

    She says she wants to stay the way she is (not get skinnier), and I'm not sure if I should do anything or not.
