Quoting Jacob Feagley:
Hello,

I am a 17 year old, 5'5 male and I weigh around 92 pounds. I eat only slightly less than the average person my height and age. Am I considered anorexic, severely underweight, or just underweight?

You are underweight. Anorexia is an eating disorder, not what they call people who are underweight. If you starve yourself because you believe you are fat, you may be anorexic. If you are worried about developing anorexia or (if you have anorexia), speak to your GP.

Hi,

I'm 18 yrs currently... I'm 5ft 1 and im 129 currently... I've weighed more in the past 3 -4 months.. im actually happy that I've gotten it down. I did before not like how my body was but now I'm happy but I'm not on a diet or anything. Just watching what I eat. Less sugar could be a reason. But I think it could be because of coffee cause I use to drink a lot of it before now its rare.... but I feel great, but I still wanna know what should I start changing and what should I start eating more of? I'm happy with my weight tho... thanks... plus I joined the army so that's why im getting my weight down.
