Many people choose to hide their anorexia through clothing. That would be like not wearing clothes that reveal something like excessively sticking out bones, for example. Some will only eat in front of others, so people think that they eat, when that might be all they eat the entire day. Some make food in front of others and take it "to eat on the way to work" or "on the go", but then throw it out so, again, it seems like they are eating but they aren't. Other factors to hide are painting finger / toe nails becaus a lack of nutrients cause severe and noticeable discoloration, always applying chapstick ot contantly dry lips, and also always moisturizing extremely dry skin. Anorexia is a serious mental disorder, which can lead to various negative consequences for one's health and even death. If you or a close one have anorexia, you should talk to a health practitioner in order to get the medical support needed to become healthy again. If you want to hide your anorexia, you probably don't feel ready to recover. Communicate that to your doctor, family, instead of trying to perpetuate what is often a deadly disease.

How does anorexia affect teenagers?

For me, anorexia started during my pre-teen years and by the time I was a teenager, I was withdrawn and depresssed. I would hide away in my room with the door locked, I was skipping school, and I had no interest in anything. That said, anorexia can affect people in different ways because personality (and some say genetics) are mixed in there as well. It's all very complicated, to say the least!
