So, me and this girl at school are kind of friends 
I don't really like her.
Anyways, that's not the point of this thread whatsoever.
My friend is super skinny. Like, REALLY. She's also really small.
She does ballet, which keeps her active, and gymnastics, and it's just the way she's built. She doesn't starve herself, she eats okay.
Until now.
She's decided she's 'fat'. 
She's not at all. I know people with anorexia think they're fat, even when they're not, but I don't think my friend REALLY has anorexia.
She says she'll starve herself and not eat.
But she hasn't stuck to that promise yet, which I'm glad of, but she thinks also that if she has eating disorders she'll become 'cool'. This is why I hate society. they glamourise everything under the sun to be something it's not.
I don't really know what to do. I don't really like this girl but I'm forced to spend time with her because she likes me.
I try telling her if she doesn't eat, she won't be fit enough to carry on with ballet. You need a lot of strength to keep it up, meaning you need to eat right.
I'm thinking of becoming a doctor, and I'm interested in health, so I try to tell her things to stop her from starving herself from a medical point of view, because she seems pretty determined to do it.
Help please.

Well you're not going to convince her of anything. If she has it set in her mind that she's fat, then she's going to keep thinking it. It's her own insecurity that she needs to work out on her own. All you can do is be her friend and remind her that everyone has different body types and that she's perfect the way she is.

I think you should tell an adult that you're concerned about her. That way they can keep an eye on her.
