What is Anorexia Nervosa?

Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder, typified by a low weight maintained by restrictive eating (and sometimes exercising and/or purging). People who suffer from this disorder essentially starve their bodies with the objective of losing weight or gaining control. There are two anorexic sub-types: 1) ‘restrictive sub-type’ typified by restrictive eating and/or exercise, and 2) ‘binge-purge sub-type’ classified according to restrictive eating and/or exercise, with binging and purging.

While eating disorders occur across the lifespan, they are most common in young women. You may be at greater risk of developing an eating disorder if:

  • you dislike your body or have a strong desire to be thin
  • you have a family history of eating disorders
  • you have been abused
  • you are highly perfectionistic
