Anorexia Nervosa

Say: an-uh-REK-see-uh nur-VOH-suh

We all need to eat to live. But some people worry so much about getting fat that they develop an eating disorder like anorexia. People with anorexia become very afraid of gaining weight. They may go on extreme diets or exercise all the time. Other ways you might be able to tell someone has anorexia is if he or she often skips meals, becomes obsessed with calories, and loses lots of weight.
