Don't judge,
Don't put them under pressure to 'eat' or push to discuss the issue,

Mention you are concerned for them,
Re weight loss, not eating in front of others,
Going to the loo straight after eating.
If you know them well enough you will notice changes in their behaviour,
Just support them as note your concerns, the behaviours you have noticed,
And state that ..you have noticed ..changes
