About a week. Unless you drink lots of water, it will be mostly water weight loss the first week.

It depends how long they have been anorexic. If a normal person decides not to eat all of a sudden, they may lose 20 lbs in a month. If one has been anorexic for a while, their body is in starvation mode and is conserving as many calories as possible, so they are losing weight at a slower rate. Some anorexics exercise obsessively, which will cause the weight loss to increase slightly to moderately.

Do anorexic people lose weight quickly after they become anorexic?

Community Answer 1To even be considered anorexic, one must have a BMI of less than 18. Once your BMI is that low, it it hard to drop weight as quickly as someone at a normal or overweight BMI. There are many other types of EDs, though, which can make you both loose or gain weight very quickly._____________________________________Community Answer 2It completely depends on the individual. I know of people diagnosed with AN who have lost weight relatively slowly over a long period of time, and others who have dropped significant amounts of weight in a very short space of time. I myself have experienced many different rates of weight loss at different stages of my illness, dependant on many different factors, including metabolism, intake, mental health, medication etc.
