Why do anorexics drink diet soda?

Diet soda has little to no calories (depending on the brand or type). Anorexics do not want calories. Soda, even diet soda, will have more tastes than, say, water, so it will also provide that. Soda can also provide energy (caffeine), be filling as a drink, and (if they were also bulimic)the carbonation makes it easier to also throw up later. All of this comes with little or no calories, so anorexics think this is best.

Do anorexics drink anything?

More likely than not, yes. Your body needs water far more than it needs food, though it still needs both to survive and be healthy. Drinking in the sense of alcohol - probably not because most forms of alcohol are high in calories. Most anorexics will stick with water. Some might have diet sodas and such, others might have a flavored or carbonated water. Almost all will drink something that is low-cal with little to no sugars in it, though.
