A very serious disease, which isn't always self inflicted. When a person, has a fear of becoming fat, so they don't eat. It is normally a female, because women are praised if they look good, and men are looked up upon if they have a high status or good job. They have a need to control something in their life, so they completely control their weight(thats what a Psychologist said). It can also be because of: fear of food, fear of becoming fat, or after a trauma in their life. They normally like cooking too.
Sigmund Freud also said its because they subconsciously want to look like a penis, but many people dissagree with his studies.
The Difference between Dieting and Anorexia is that:
The people who diet, are losing weight to look more atractive etc.
Anorexics are losing weight because they are afraid of becoming fat.
