What is Anorexia?

Anorexia is a type of eating disorder, typified by a strive for thinness or control. Those who suffer from anorexia experience a distorted body image, perceiving themselves as much larger than their actual body. Anorexia is seen in males and females as well as across the lifespan, but Anorexia is most commonly found in young women.

Signs and symptoms of anorexia include:

  • Being underweight with a low BMI
  • Significant anxiety and distress before and during eating
  • Eating very little and skipping meals altogether
  • Viewing yourself as larger than your actual body size
  • Taking appetite suppressants and/or purging via self-induced vomiting or laxative use
  • Menstruation ceasing, or not starting at all in the case of younger women
  • Excessive exercise whereby the individual pushes themselves to their physical and mental limits
