Anorexia nervosa - also known as anorexia - is an eating disorder and mental health condition, which can be life-threatening.

Anorexia mainly affects young people who 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.
