Essentially try-hard anorexics that think that it's frickin awesome to be an anorexic. Generally in the 12-16 years category, or anyone that hasn't developed brain matter yet.

Wannarexics choose to become anorexic, and while most of the attempts fail within days of starting, some actually do become anorexic.

Wannarexics need to be killed.
Girl one: OMFG!!!! I like totes haven't eaten in 6 hours! I'M SO COOL.

Girl two: LOL. She's got Wannarexia. Dumbass.

1. An imaginary disease most commonly found amongst preteen to teenage, overweight, females whom claim to have the eating disorder anorexia, but they do not meet the criteria. In fact, they do not have an eating disorder at all. Most wannarexic people feel that anorexia is a "quick fix" to lose weight and that it is glamorous.
I was reading this girl's xanga and she TOTALLY has wannarexia. She recorded a food log and she admitted to eating 3 large mushroom pizzas, a super sized order of french fries, 12 hamburgers, 14 cheesesteaks, 7 pounds of animal fat, and 35 chocolate bars. And that was just her breakfast!

Overview: Onset between 14-17, affects only females. It Is NOT the life-threatening disorder, but the girls craving sympathy and attention will claim it is. They will refer to their new diet as 'ana', to try and appear as though they fit into the cultural breed of fakes. They spend money on starbucks like it was calorie-free. Usually, they'll 'recover' or just forget, as soon as they've lost the 5 or 10 pounds before prom.

Warning signs: Extremely low comprehension level, joining pro-ana communities, showing sudden interest in Mary-Kate Olsen, and using sayings like 'stay strong', or 'WWMKD?' (what would mary kate do). They'll have a fear of getting fat (although they are blind to their already prominent handles and rolls.) They'll take pictures contorted at strange angles, sucking in their stomache to try and prove that they are really anorexic, and post them on their pro-ana boards.

Treatment: No treatment is possible to convince people suffering from wannarexia that they are not anorexic, unless the treatment includes brain replacement.
Examples:

Girl: "omigod i didnt eat today and now i way 72 pounds, WWMKD? stay strong, ana luv!"

OR

Girl 1: "This girl just told me she was anorexic, and might be hospitalized.. She doesn't look skinny at all though?"

Girl 2: "That girl just has wannarexia. She wears a size 0 and pretends that it fits, but she can't do up the zipper. And, she drinks a few venti starbucks frappucinos with extra sauce every day. What a loser."

A term given to the "condition" girls who WANT to have anorexia really have. They'll promote their "eating disorder" and tell everyone how little they've eaten and talk about how fat they think they are, whereas someone who actually has anorexia nervosa wouldn't promote this fact at all. What these wannarexic girls don't realize is that you can't force yourself to be anorexic, and if they truly knew how dark and lonely having anorexia is, they wouldn't wish it upon their worst enemies. They're really only doing it for attention, which is an issue in itself.
Priscilla just told me she had a carrot stick for dinner. She totally has wannarexia.

Overview: Onset between 14-17, affects females 100% over males. Wannarexia is NOT the life-threatening disorder, it is the self-diagnosed illness young women give themselves when they want to lose weight quickly, and are desperate for attention and sympathy. They will refer to their new diet as 'ana', to try and appear as though they fit into the cultural breed of fakes. They spend money on starbucks like it was calorie-free. Usually, they'll 'recover', or just forget, as soon as they've lost the 5 or 10 pounds before prom.

Warning signs: May include extremely low comprehension level, joining pro-ana communities, showing sudden interest in MaryKate Olsen, and using sayings like 'stay strong', 'ana luv' or 'WWMKD?' (what would mary kate do). They'll prouldy show their fake illness by wearing a red bracelet; and have a fear of getting fat although they are blind to their already prominent handles and rolls. They'll take pictures of themselves contorted at strange angles and sucking in their stomache to try and prove that they are really anorexic, and post them on their pro-ana boards.

Treatment: No treatment is possible to convince people suffering from wannarexia that they are not anorexic, unless the treatment includes brain replacement.

Girl 2: "That girl just has wannarexia. She wears a size 0 and pretends that it fits, but she can't do up the zipper. And, she drinks a few venti starbucks frappucinos with extra caramel every day. What a loser."

Overview: Onset is usually between 14 and 17, and affects females 100% of the time over males. Wannarexia is NOT the life-threatening disorder, it is the self-diagnosed illness these young women commonly give themselves when they are wanting to lose some weight quickly, and very desperate in their search for attention and sympathy. They will refer to their new friend (or 'diet') as 'ana', giving a cutesy nickname to try and appear as though they fit into the cultural breed of fakers. They spend money on starbucks like it was calorie-free. But, usually, they will 'recover', or just forget, as soon as they've lost the 5 or 10 pounds before prom.

Warning signs: warning signs may include extremely low comprehension level, joining pro-ana communities, showing sudden interest in MaryKate Olsen, and using sayings like 'stay strong' or 'ana luv' or 'WWMKD?' (what would mary kate do). They will wear their fake disease proudly on their wrist in the form of a red string bracelet, and have a fear of getting fat, although they are blind to their already prominent handles and rolls. They will take pictures of themselves contorted at strange angles and sucking in their stomache to try and prove that yes, they are really anorexic, and post these on their pro-ana boards; and truly believe that anorexia is a lifestyle choice, not a disease.

Treatment: No treatment is possible to convince people suffering from wannarexia that they are not anorexic, unless the treatment includes brain replacement.
