Default I don't know. Advice please.

Ok so when I was still with my ex, for the last year or so of our relationship, she kept telling me I have an eating disorder. I didn't believe her but now that she is gone I know why she was saying it.
I weighed 11.5 stone 2 years ago, I am now down to 7.5 stone and my weight is decreasing all the time.
Although I know something is wrong and I am very underweight ( For a male of 22 years ) I still think that I look big and not skinny. Along with this I just generally don't like to eat. I eat 2 Sandwiches and 2 chocolate bars Sunday through Thursday night while I am at work, but only because I work with my Dad and I have no other choice.
After I eat anything I feel disgusting, I hate myself even more than I did before I ate.

The thing is, I have noone close enough to me anymore that I can talk to about anything.

So my question is, what do I do? When it gets to the weekend I don't eat a single thing. What do I do?

Do you just not feel like eating? Are you not hungry?

You need to try and force food into you...and good food that will give you more energy. Even if you don't feel like eating, a good substitute is a protein shake. But make sure you get the right protein shake, not one that assists you in losing weight, there are weight gainers out there. They also give you some good nutrition. You should go to a health food store or sport nutrition store and talk to them about it if you think you could do this?

See a nutritionist and have them work out what your body needs to be healthy and make a plan to stick to that healthy intake. I couldn't eat anything after losing my dad and did this, it really did help, i forced food down at certain times but it helps your metabolism and helps your mentally to get into a sort of rhythm. Hope this helps, Good luck.

Thank you both for the advice.

It's both that I can't eat and don't want to. It's so hard to physically put food into my body, and like I said, I feel horrible after I eat anything.

I will try to eat if it will help, I need to get better. I really do.
