Anorexia nervosa, also known as anorexia, is an eating disorder that can result in health problems, and even death. It is an intense focus on fears of becoming fat, causing individuals to starve themselves, sometimes exercise excessively, and lose weight because they mistakenly believe they are fat.

The word “Anorexia” means loss of appetite, however those who suffer with the condition rarely experience this. In fact, they often experience hunger due to extreme food restriction. “Nervosa” means nervous, referring to the nervous system and brain, which is impacted by the condition. Anorexia usually starts in puberty, and affects more females, however rates in males are increasing. Those who work in the public eye are more at risk of developing eating disorders like anorexia, due to the focus on their body image. Often people who are successful in many areas of life, and might be thought of as ‘high achievers’ are susceptible to anorexia because of their perfectionist tendencies, and obsessive, anxious, and depressive temperaments. Anorexia is diagnosed when an individual’s weight decreases to 15% below their healthy body-mass index (BMI). Individuals experience body dysmorphia and see themselves as fat when they are in fact very thin, by restricting food, they believe they can rectify the self-perceived problem.
