Sounds like this could be a form of Eating Disorder, and worth discussing with a psychiatrist, for a proper assessment and advice. "Feeling" fatter than you actually are, being irrationally fussy about diet, and abusing laxatives, souns mighty like an Eating Disorder, which needs expert help to get it right. Or is Tebogo right here ?
