Default I think my gf has an eating disorder

so my gf "forgets" to eat a lot and she has a very negative view of herself, especially her body. all she wants to do is lose weight. she does still eat but her attitude towards eating is very unhealthy and I'm worried about her. I'm worried that her goal weight will just keep getting lower and it will never be enough. the other day she even threw up her food. I try my best to encourage her to eat and be there for her but I don't know what else to do. any advice would be much appreciated.

That's hard, if see is not evening listening you, how come she will listen to you. Better show her some fatal cases that let to serious damaged to body due to doing all this. this might help.

Hi AMK64. Sorry you have such a difficult situation to deal with. If you think that hearing about a famous person that died because of their eating disorder you may want to mention Karen Carpenter Karen Carpenter and Anorexia: How a Musical Legend Died
