Anorexia is starvation of the body due to mostly psychological reasons. The most common being the delusion that the person afflicted is too fat and therefore shouldn't eat. Of course there are also people with insanely fast metabolisms and a guy I know who only has about 1% or less total body fat, or so he says.

I was anorexic in high school. I was bullied quite often for a full metal right leg brace that I used to wear, and I was also called chubby. I ended up going to therapy for it after about a year and dropping quite a bit of weight (went from about 190 to 130 in less than a year). I know that some cases are mostly self image issues, but other times it can be underlying issues of needing to feel in control of something in your life, whether it from bullying or something like going through abuse.

If you know someone who is anorexic just try and support them emotionally as much as you can. My friends all got together and started helping me, and would often bring spare things to eat if they didnt see me eating during lunch. It takes a long time to shake, and its almost impossible to overcome without a strong support system and encouragement. Ultimately they have to realize that no matter what other people say they're beautiful and to not listen to the BS.

I got called anorexic when i was in middle school (still get called it) because im so under-weight from being overly active and having an extremely high metabolism. I weigh less than most people my age. I weigh 98lbs >.<

I've been accused by one of my best friends of anorexia Purely based on my poor eating habits. But my job / routine is a pretty low energy routine, I eat directly according to my energy consumption, which is why my weight is pretty much always static. Besides I'm not very tall either So I'm perfect where BMI is concerned, and I actually really like my body.

When my activity spikes (training, etc) So does my appetite.

Some form of fear of food resulted from being too overly-conscious of their body and as such cause self-induced harm (vomitting)? You can check online for answer though lol

I'm glad I started treatment when I did, because I could have died if I kept up the way I was eating and exercising.

I'd see the characters, all so cute and unrealistically skinny, and I'd want to be like them.

I still have a hard time watching anime. When I see the characters, I feel fat. I feel like I don't deserve to watch anime. I'd love to cosplay someday. But I feel like I'm not skinny enough. For awhile when I first started treatment, I did not watch anime at all. I didn't listen to any Vocaloid music either (my favorite music). I seriously feel awful right now. I want to cry. Because I've been watching anime, and I feel fat, and I know that I'm suppose to be gaining even more....

I also can't stand seeing skinny people or eating with people who don't eat much. It makes me feel like a pig.

But I love anime. It might sound stupid, but anime and Vocaloid are a REALLY big part of my life. I can't quit. But it is seriously hurting me and I don't know what to do.


I understand where you're coming from. Seeing Shōnen anime makes me feel really fat and really insecure.

In most Shōnen anime girls are really skinny with defined stomach biceps and big boobs. I am not skinny not muscular and my boobs aren't really that big. I've been in rehabilitation for Anorexia and self harm.

Anime is a bittersweet hobby, but I honestly will never stop watching it.

A person starves themself, in an attempt to get thinner. Soon enough, they can't stop starving themselves, because no matter how much weight they lose, their reflection in the mirror is gonna be fat, in their eyes. If they don't stop, they eventually will collapse from emaciation & have to get treatment for their eating disorder.

How do I know all this? I used to try to starve myself. Back in middle school, many, many many bitchy girls would constantly refer to me as a 'chubby fatass', simply because they were uncomfortable with themselves or they weighed 90 lbs. At lunch, for a while, I would no longer eat. Just drink water & go through the rest of the day, irritable & tired. I also started skipping other meals. Eventually when we had our school physicals, they weighed me. I was 89 lbs & 5'0 or so. I looked pretty disgusting. So I decided to gain back the weight before anyone noticed & put me in a treatment program.

Now I weigh a healthy 125 & I'm 5'4 or 5'5. Even though I think of myself of 'fat' compared the the impossibly proportioned girls I have known & anime females as well, I try not to get myself down.

I would agree with you on the anime thing. I see all the anime girls with such skinny bodies & perfect boobs & all, and it makes me feel really really fat. They're so perfect, I'm not. That's how they make me feel....

Also, Japanaese & Korean idols are another issue for me. They are also unnaturally thin. I don't watch many korean / japanese mvs anymore because the female singers make me look like an elephant. SNSD - for example, is one of my favorite girlgroups, but their pencil thin bodies, especially their legs, make me feel so so huge....

The same thing goes for Japanese idols & singers . They're pictures of sheer perfection. How can I, a size 6 teenager, be like them when they're like a size 00, perhaps even smaller? :(

To me a person isn't anorexic till I can see their facial bones.

I'll never understand why some girls prefer to throw up their delicious food than go out and exercise 1 hour a day or so.

i can only see hyde from that 70 show sayings its a reform by the government when i think about this.

anywho, i have gone a week without eating just to see how it feels.
there are days that i do it just because.
i don't do it to be thin or what not.
you can call it training incase craps happens, apocolypse whatever you want.
i just want the ability to be able to keep myself alive if anything happens.
