And not the tips and tricks kind, don't worry. 

 

My boyfriend is incredibly skinny, like nearly skeletal other than being well toned because he works out daily. But I'm starting to pick up on some disordered habits of his, such as working out nightly and getting anxious if he cant, or binging after, or binging before. He's aware that he's underweight, but he's convinced that he needs to gain more and more muscle and eat less. (he also calls himself fat sometimes despite being a twig imo) 

 

I know nothing about muscle dysmorphia at all, and he doesn't know I'm picking up on things, I don't think. I don't even know if it's muscle dysmorphia he's displaying. Could anyone here give me advice on how I can be supportive to him? How would you want your significant other to be toward you in your disorder? I'm sorry if my wording is bad, my english isn't great ;n;

He can't gain more muscle and eat less and less. You need to eat to gain muscle. If not muscle dysmorphia, it's something else. He has an eating disorder.

 

Does he know that he has a problem? If not, maybe you should bring it up gently. Be caring, but not aggressive. Also, don't help his disorder, but be supportive.


Somewhat recovered and striving for fitness goals.

Thank you for your kind reply! I'm not sure how aware he is honestly, of his problem or how much I know. But I know from experience it can be pretty darn easy to hide.
Ill bring it up in a gentle manner when the time is right. Thank you again!

You may want to give him encouragement on being more healthy. Like, if you want to gain muscle, you need to eat at a surplus. He's not doing that. Unfortunately, it's hard to help someone else be healthy without also being committed to that yourself. 

 

It actually seems like he'd be more healthy if he did reach his goals, because maybe he would have a better sense of self-esteem, and he wouldn't be underweight anymore.

I want a thigh gap like Lemongrab before he got fat and ate his brother.
