Daughter

Hello,
I wondered what is happening to my daughter.
Last summer she was 160 cm tall and weighed 52 kg, she really hated that, always screaming that she is fat. After Christmas she got IBS. She can't eat loot of foods because her stomach hurts. The foods she could only eat were oatmeal, almond milk, buckwheat, less fat cheese, cucumbers, egg whites, yogurt, blueberries, and buttermilk. Later on she was able to eat salads, gluten, tomatoes, and milk. In June 2015, she finally recovered and could eat all food except potatoes. She lost loot of weight and was only 39 kg. In June she started to eat sweets,she can't stop. She waked up at night so nobody saw her and ate cakes, ice cream, candies, and etc.In begging of September she start to overeat foods, like chips, pizza, hummus, crackers, cheese, and everything she saw. Now she is 52 and hates her self, she want to lose weight and be 46 kg. Yesterday she overeat again, and today she didn't eat anything. She didn't eat lunch and breakfast. She sits in her room and read a book. When I asked her if she is hungry, she said that she is not. What could I do? Just leave her alone. I am afraid of that she don't eat anything.

Thanks, for reading.

It sounds like she has an eating disorder. You should try talking to her about it. Tell her she's not in trouble but you are concerned. Don't be judgmental or embarrass her, just listen to her. If there is a problem ask if she wants to talk to a professional, and give her the option to go by herself or with you, whichever she'd prefer. Letting her decide can make her feel more in control and more likely to open up to you about what she's going through.

She didn't want to talk to doctors. All she said is that  she can't stop eat sweets and that she wants to lose 5 kg in a week and be 46-47 kg. I don't think that it is possible. She started to be very active, she runs everyday for 10-20 minutes, rides bike, make aerobics, and lift weight (3 pounds).

Yesterday I saw her eating buttermilk with buckwheat and 3 hours later berry blend. Today she didn't eat breakfast. I asked her why you didn't eat and she said, "Sorry, mom. I am not hungry maybe later." Another strange thing she is doing is that she takes something from fridge, but don't eat it. She closes her eyes, smells it and put back. My sister said that maybe she is growing up. Her son didn't eat anything, too for about a week. They took him to doctor, but they said nothing. After week passed he was 5 cm taller and his appetite comes back.

Thanks.
