Anorexia

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder and mental health condition, which can be life-threatening.  It affects mainly young people.

People with anorexia try to keep their weight as low as possible, usually by restricting the amount of food they eat and sometimes exercising to excess. They often have a distorted image of themselves, thinking that they're overweight when, in fact, they are a healthy weight or even underweight.
