Can veganism in a young person be the beginning of an eating disorder?


I'm not sure if it is but I know a young person who went through some rough times and then became a vegan. I'm not a psychologist but I am aware a few things. I'm thinking that this is the only thing that have control over in their life right now. I would like to know your thoughts.

    Well, of course I wouldn't say this to them. Although veganism is a fairly healthy lifestyle in a young person eating disorders are quite common and are a mental disorder. Did it sound like I came to a conclusion regarding this? No, it wasn't!

    Using veganism as a cover for an eating disorder not the beginning of an eating disorder. Claiming to be vegan when one is anorexic is a lie. The author of this article did state that most vegans don't have the mental illness of eating disorders.
