You want your friends to be healthy and you want to be fit with them, but what happens if your best friend starts to take it too far?
The signs are all there. Your friend is intensely afraid of being fat, she talks nonstop about how many calories are in her food and what she weighed this morning, and she's starting to avoid situations where she's expected to eat. While you don't know for sure, you start to get worried that your friend might be developing — or already be suffering from — an eating disorder.
