Hi emocartoon and welcome to ehealth: I don't know what your weight and height are, but if you are underweight then you are on the road to developing a serious eating disorder...Depending upon your age I would say to either tell your parents or see a doctor...Get some help in battling this image problem that you are having...You must learn to like yourself as well as eat correctly...Please get some help...Take care...

Why are you doing this? Is it to lose weight? If so, then it is not the best way to lose weight. Developing this bad habit will only give you adverse result. And worst, it can lead to more serious illnesses. So better stick with a healthy diet and regular exercise. good luck

noone wants to get fat emocartoon, but im sure that like most people with views like mine and yours that you think your fat or gross regaurdless, please dont think that your fat if you really arent and if you are scared of gaining weight then just lead a healthy active lifestyle, eat right and exercise and the good healthy ways to stay in shape and be happy and healthy, id hate to see another life ruined or lost to this kind of non sense i really would.
