Anorexia or Anorexia Nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by extremely low body weight, body image distortion and an intense fear of gaining weight.

There are two types of anorexics – the restricting type and the purging type.  The restricting type severely restricts calories, fasts and exercises excessively.  The purging type rids themselves of calories by vomiting and/or the use of laxatives, diuretics and/or enemas.
