Anorexia an-o-REK-see-uh nervosa — often simply called anorexia — is an eating disorder characterized by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight. People with anorexia place a high value on controlling their weight and shape, using extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with their lives. To prevent weight gain or to continue losing weight, people with anorexia usually severely restrict the amount of food they eat. They may control calorie intake by vomiting after eating or by misusing laxatives, diet aids, diuretics or enemas. They may also try to lose weight by exercising excessively. No matter how much weight is lost, the person continues to fear weight gain.

Anorexia nervosa among teenagers is an extremely serious illness. The physical and psychological effects can be severe, and in some cases result in death. An anorexic teenager is obsessed with being thin, and regardless of how thin they are, continue to exercise and starve themselves because they see themselves as overweight. Teenagers who starve themselves are often doing irrevocable damage that they may, or may not be aware of. When the body goes without the nutrition it needs to function properly, there is a chance of permanent damage.
