It can take quite sometime. We can live without food for weeks, but not water. However, you may not see any changes on the outside of your body for the first little while, but your internal organs will be wondering what in heck has hit them. If Anorexia is not nipped in the bud the person will end up very ill and if it's left too long then death can occur. The stomach, intestines, liver, heart are all included in this ratio. There is all sorts of help out there for eating disorders. Anorexia can hit any class of people, any race or the rich/poor. It's a sneaky little beast. It happens mostly in young women (during dieting crazes and fads) and can start as innocently as becoming a vegetarian. Unless a person really knows what it is to be a vegetarian (has studied it) then a vegetarian diet is the worst thing they could be on. Bodies need protein and some people think you need to eat meat to get that protein, but you can get it in legumes (beans) cheeses, etc. Young women are inundated with being slim and pretty and to make matters worse it's splashed across teen magazines, movie magazines, on TV, etc. They don't tell you that many of these girls are either so sick from being Anorexic or Bulimic, or they have had plastic surgery to look the way they do or that girls like Britney Spears are air-brushed before she even hits the stage to do a concert. That she's had plastic surgery. Now more than ever young teen actors are coming out and admitting their are Anorexic and they are GETTING WELL! They are tired of it all. It takes a lot of energy to not eat. Young women should be independent and smart enough to be their own person and not trust what these magazines or TV ads say. Being thin does not bring happiness or more men into your life. It's what's inside a person that radiates to others as far as being attractive.
