Stomach sickness on eating heavy meal. Had cut down food post-par tum. Anorexia?

I have a friend that has been eating very little for the past two years. She was healthy just had a baby and hated the weight gain . So she cut back on food not just unhealthy food but everything. A days worth of eating is a donut some dried cranberries and water or tea. She now is sick almost everyday when she eats a bigger meal her stomach hurts and she just keeps saying she has ibs . The doctors have done every possible test and they say there is nothing wrong with her. My question is is it possible for her to be anarexic? She reached 96 lbs and said she felt fat. I need help I need to show her prof of what she is doing to herself. Thanks

Yes, she is Anorexic as you have rightly suspected. Does she have any Any Abdominal Pain?
With the history of pregnancy, her not willing have a weight gain and not eating at all - suggest that she has a psychological problem or a phobia.
IF the consultation with a Doctor or Her GP does not help , she should be taken to the psychiatrist .
Anorxia Nervosa becomes resistant very fast .
