My parents are convinced I eat too less and they force me to eat too much,especially rice.They wont let me switch to brown rice either.My dad doesnt even want me to lose weight and my mom thinks Ive an ED.Its beginning to get to me and it doesnt help that my parents mock my fitness goals! What do I do?

I'm sure you've already tried talking to them and telling them it's important to you. So now try talking to your doctor and having a sit down with the four of you about what should and shouldn't be done. Good luck

They cant make you eat anything unless you like 4 years old or less

Agreeing with Lisa that anything faced with an abrupt change do cause ripples and is also not welcomed by body too. So if u already have been eating pretty well, don't simply Gol on a diet. Rather start replacing ur food with healthy alternatives such as fruits, curd etc. Then slowly reduce the intake based on ur plan and consenting sm1 who can tell the right amount of food for you. Secondly. I know the Indian parents (and all my foreigner friends who have watched Russell Peters would also understand :-)), if you have been an obedient child so far,...

Being a parent, I can tell you that they know more than you think they do. 

I bet if you were to honestly log in your foods everyday, you would not be able to tell us that your eating enough. 

You've probably cut your calories so drastically that your parents have reason to be concerned. 

I support my kids in their healthy choices, not the unhealthy one.

Sometimes the parent be very big themself and eat alot and act like if they aint their size they not big enough , i know alot kids my age that parents are like that

I have to disagree on your thinking. Most parents who are big don't wish that on their children. I don't know any larger parents that want their kids to be unhealthy. lots of parents who are larger go to great lengths to help their kids not end up where they are.

When food becomes is all you think of when it comes to obsessing about it, it could tend to become an issue. May be you could ask your doctor who could recommend a nutritionist for you and fitness goals. This way you have supervision and your parents don't have to be so concerned. Plus, learning about your cholesterol numbers and your blood pressure would be a great way to know how your body is doing.

All the best.

Yup, the doctor is the best judge here.

I suspect that you and your parents each hold up one extreme. You probably want to be fit and look good a little too much, and they are probably a little too concerned that you will end up with an eating disorder. The doctor can help you all to find the middle ground.

At first, see the doctor alone. It will be easier to admit to the doctor what you are doing wrong without your parents bearing witness.  Then, you can bring your parents along so they can hear it all from the horse's mouth. You will have more credibility to your parents if they hear the doctor confirm what you have been saying.

And I know how hard it can be. No, they can't force you to eat, but if you don't, they can take revenge and make your life a living hell. You have to break this cycle rapidly. It is never good to associate food with emotion!

If her parents r so worroed about a eating,disorter then they would have took her to a specialist. docters dont fix anything. They dont give advice about eating disorters. They only care about money.

True...however a problem could show up in blood work like iron deficiency, vitamin B and D. After all, your body is maturing therefore it's essential to get those vitamins needed to help your body grow the way it's supposed to.

Angel, are you saying nobody can her and she should learn to live with it or run away? Doctors will not help? Really? Then who will? You?

Oh, by the way, Angel, FYI, a specialist IS a doctor, one that charges a lot more than an MD.

All docters do is point out ur over weight n point fingers back at you. Ive been to plenty of docters n they dont help just get you more fruaterated with your weight. Having 5 friends and a mother that worked at a weightloss clinics. I can help with eating scedules n exersize scedules

Hey there....I can totally get u. I actually made a log of what I eat and turned out I was not eating as well as I thought. So I started making better choices cuz it turned out as u gey older if u don't train ur body to eat well now and the right amounts u actually gain weight. Which is what happened. So after I made a log and research some good healthy choices I shared that with my family. They were actually happy I wanted to be heathly and I said to them u could use a support but not be forced. They actually took to well but of course I had to show them what I found.  Good luck

Thanks for the support everyoneI think the main problem is that my parents dont understand WHY I want to lose weight.Now that my weight isnt in the overweight range,they just dont understand why I want to lose any moreMy mom does to a certain extent but my Dad thinks its to get guys to like me or something

It's always hard for dads to accept their little girl is growing up. Keep being you!
