tell them straight out, they’ll be happier you told them then keeping it a secret and hurting yourself in the process.

If you say straight out “I have an eating disorder”, their automatic reaction may be to say “no, you don’t” simply because that’s kind of a natural reaction. Instead, maybe you could tell them “I want to talk to someone about some thoughts I have about food”. That’s a solution, not a problem, and they may react better to that. Good luck!
