Should you try anorexia I've tried everything and I'm an athlete but my matabolism doesn't go very fast and i want to get back down so what can i do?
Trying anorexia is about as silly as suggesting to try OCD to get better at remembering things. Anorexia is a KILLER, and not something you can "try" for awhile and then set aside. Be glad that you don't have it, it ruins lives. If you really are an athlete then your metabolism hasn't got much choice but to keep running, unless you've been messing around with your diet so bad that your body has switched over into starvation mode. Probably all you need to do is to monitor what you eat more closely, and stick to the plan.

Why did anorexia occur?
It is not exactly determined why anorexia occured, but there are some thoughts. Usually, anorexia is a result of a person trying to lose weight because they feel insecure about their bodies. This can result from BDD (Body Dismorphic Disorder) or from teasing or being made fun of or through others constantly telling you that you are fat, unattractive, or overweight. Anorexia can also happen out of a need for control. For someone who feels that they lack power over things or aspects of their life, many feel that food is one of the few things that they have total say on. (Think, no one can really force you to eat. It's pretty much your choice how much you eat and what you put into your body. Anorexia can also occur if people want to be "pretty" or "attractive", and they feel that being super-thin is the only way to do so. Also, anorexia can sometimes develop out of a need for approval or attention.
