Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa (often referred to as just anorexia) is a very serious, pathological loss of appetite and self induced limiting of food intake. Anorexia nervosa can lead to severe psychological, emotional, and physical problems, including death. This disorder most often affects females (although males do suffer from anorexia as well), and is typically associated with a tremendous amount of concern for and misperception of one's own body image.
