a psychological disorder whereby grandmothers suffer from a distorted body image and pathological fear of acting their age. Granorexics may use dieting, self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, and dressing in clothes more suitable for their grandchildren to highlight their 'ideal physique'. Granorexics often comment negatively about their children's and grandchildren's weight.
A. "Wow - your mom looks good for 62."
B. "Yeah, but she suffers from granorexia. She eats virtually nothing and spends all day doing situps so she can fit into her Fancy Ass jeans. I wish she would just bake my kids cookies instead of telling them about the grapefruit diet."
granorexia is when first time grandmothers freak out about being a "grandma" so they totally overhaul themselves to look hot by spray tanning, buying super young trash clothes and losing tons of weight. when these ladies lose too much weight trying to achieve their new look, they could be suffering from "granorexia".
"every since the baby was born, betty looks like she's trying to look friggin 18...plus she has gotten soooooooooooooo thin!"
"hmmmmm......smells like granorexia to me. wonder if the folks at INTERVENTION would be interested in this!"
