Anorexia is an eating disorder which is characterized by unusuallylow body weight, a severe fear of gaining weight, and a craving to be thin. Even though people suffering from anorexia are underweight, they consider themselves to be obese. Anorexic people are often in self-denial concerning their low body weight. As a consequence, anorexia may lead to severe health problems and sometimes death.
If you or someone you know is anorexic, please seek professional help immediately.
