An eating disorder (and a serious disease) that can either cause death, lasting symptoms or - if you're extremely lucky - nothing whatsoever. Anorexia Nervosa is the disease in which the person with it limits their eating, exercises too often, and the like. It, however, does not consist of binging and purging (e.g. eating a huge meal then puking it up later.). This is called bulimia.
Holy crap, people, get it right. Learn the difference between these two, because they are extremely different.
Also, both of these diseases are extremely hard to "shake off" or get rid of. Even after two years of being "normal" I still have some symptoms, and I still think I'm fat at times, even though it has been two years, almost three, since I had stopped.
The anorexia nervosa caused the girl to go from ninety pounds to eighty in only a few weeks.
