Our expert says:
I am also worried about you because from what you tell me, your career as a model and the excessive dieting have not only pushed you into the underweight category with a BMI of 15 (your ideal weight for height would be 68 kg!!! with a BMI of 22), but you have also developed bulimia, a serious Eating Disorder. You need to get help ASAP. Please consult both a clinical psychologist to help you work out the underlying problems that are driving you to self-destruct (ask your gp to refer you to a clinical psychologist) and a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) to obtain the name of your nearest dietitian) to help you get back to eating normally again. No modelling career is worth your ruining your health and psychological well-being. Go for that help before your young life is in tatters. At your age you should be having a ball and eating normally so that you can finish growing.
Take great care
