Can a person who is neither too fat nor too slim still have eating disorders?

Answer:

A person with normal weight can have an eating disorder. Many bulimics look quite normal despite many attacks of compulsive eating and vomiting. However, it is more common that a person with abnormal weight has an eating disorder than a person with normal weight.
