Anorexia is a serious disease where the person with the disease psychologically believes they are fat and then proceeds to starve themselves, take laxitives and vigorously exercise to try not to gain any weight. Anorexic people have a low self image of themseleves and they are usually really thin and unhealthy.
In my opinion there are three types of anorexics:
1. A full blown anorexic. They think themselves unworthy to eat. In this case anorexia becomes a way of life and they can't stop without psychological help.
2. The person is anorexic to lose some weight and when they have lost the desired weight they start to eat normally again (since the body goes into starvation mode when you don't eat for a certain amount of time your metabolism is slowed down. Therefore, when you start to eat again your metabolism is still as slow as it was during the time you didn't eat. These people usually gain back most of the weight they lost because their metabolism takes time to speed back up).
3. The person who is fishing for comliments. They tell people they think they are fat and then eat little to no food in front of them. Usually just want to hear people say that they aren't fat and then go home to scarf a box of donuts.
1. Person: Hey, are you hungry?
Anorexic person: Oh yea. I'm starved. I'll eat one starwberry.
Person: Only one?
Anorexic person: well I don't want to spoil myself...
