My friend thinks she has a weight problem. It's not quite anorexia, but I'm extremely worried about her. [more inside]

We're sort of dating, but that's more or less irrelevant. I know a lot of women worry about this, but with her it seems to be a bit more serious. She's underweight if anything, but she seems really concerned about it. She longs for the days when she survived on 600 calories a day, and thinks she's disgusting because she's up to 1000. She wouldn't go out to dinner with me a while ago, and I later found out it was because she felt like a pig the day before and didn't want to eat. Can I do anything? I don't want to tell her she's not fat, because I've noticed that doesn't work. I also don't want it to sound like I'm just being nice, because I couldn't care less about that anymore. I just want her to feel better.
