A report by ChildLine has shown that loads of kids have from eating problems but don't get enough help.
Anorexia and bulimia are big problems, but have you come across them at all?
Do you, or any of your friends, have problems with eating?
Is enough done for people with eating problems?
What more could be done to help?
I am really worried about my weight, it's horrible. My friend used to be really large but now she's thin. I should be happy for her but I can't help feeling jealous as I am quite fat myself.

I am a really fussy eater so I always worry. I also worry about my weight because I think I am fat but everyone tells me I'm not.
Emma, 13, Blackburn
Most people worry because some of the sizing of clothes are so small for the recomended age and people worry because they think they're bigger than they should be.

People who think they are too fat are a bit silly, no one cares how big or thin you are except yourself. I don't know anyone with those type of problems but I've heard about it and it just doesn't sound right. No offence though to the people who have problems but you have to sort yourself out and start eating normally, as nobody notices what you eat.

I am a little under weight, but it's not serious. But even though it's not serious I still worry a bit about it. I feel bad, because some people out there have eating problems and don't know, I don't have one but still worry.
Chloe, 13, Cannock
I get really panicky around food, and it's awful because I'm really skinny, but it's hard not to worry, it becomes a habit, which is awful.

My sister has a very bad case of anorexia and bulimia and it's really hard on my family. At one time I was scared she would die. Now she weighs everything and counts out 12 cornflakes for breakfast. If you're worried about your weight talk to someone or go on a sensible diet.

My friend was worried about what she looked liked to the boys, this included her weight. So she started starving herself. My other friend and I told our head of year, after a month deciding it had gone on long enough. They sorted it out. Now she is fine, but when she was starving herself she didn't even tell her mum about what she was doing.

I'm scared of eating at school because I think I'm fat and it looks like people are watching me.

I've experienced really unnerving comments from bullies in the past few years. I was bullied verbally and physically and I had no confidence with anything I did. I became insecure and although I self harmed I never had an eating disorder. It was tempting cos I thought I was fat and I looked disgusting. Since then I've picked myself up and forgotten my huge complex I once had. I would advise anyone who thinks these thoughts to get some help. You can pick yourself up and so much of my life has improved since I have more confidence.

My best mate is well skinny, it makes me feel fat.

You don't need to diet to lose weight, just eat sensibly and do plenty of exercise.
Shona, 12, Oxford
I'm a vegetarian and it does nothing for me health wise - I really get stressed about my weight but none of my friends understand how I feel.
Megan, 13, London
I know a person who had an eating disorder and she was in a hospital for loads of weeks, just because of it. Now she is getting her life back together now she has stopped.
Suzy, 13, Leighton Buzzard
It's hard not to worry about what to eat because everyone wants to be the same and be like supermodels because that is what people see all the time.
Bekki, 13, Gunnislake
I am worried that I am over weight and that I eat too much. This ends with me getting teased at school. I try to eat less but it always seems to go up now and again but the teasing doesn't help it makes me depressed. It is so annoying!
Lucy, 14, Devon
I do worry about my weight, and have wanted to change my diet for a long time but just can't. Tons of girls and boys are perfectly healthy but the people they look up to are so stick thin and that's what they want to be...me included.
Katie, 15, Gloucester
I don't actually have a problem with the way I look and I don't think anyone should, it's what's inside that counts. I read Girls Under Pressure by Jacqueline Wilson and that dealt with bulimia and anorexia, it is one of the best books I've read!
Katie, 14, Ipswich
I don't care I mostly eat what I want but my friend is sooooo thin and light BUT she eats MORE than me. She is about three stones lighter than me but she doesn't like dairy products like cheese, milk etc.....I'm not skinny personally though.
Katy, 13, Glasgow
I do worry about what I eat to a point. I don't say "oh I'm not allowed this and that and I'm only allowed to eat a stick of celery a week" but it's really hard for me cos my dad is always saying get me a chocolate bar and he says I can have nothing I want to eat any time.
Holly, 12, Pewsy
I know that there are people out there skinnier than me, but I'm not fat.
Camilla, 12, Dorset
My cousin worries so much about what she eats, and she is far too thin anyway. It's really hard for her family
