I don't know if this would be anorexic. They would have to undergo the diagnosis for anorexia. Whilst it is possible for them to starve and lose weight, it would not be advisable. They would become very unhealthy and starved of essential nutrients and when they resumed eating normally again, their metabolism would be lowered and they may end up even more obese than when they started out. Much better to eat wisely and reduce fat intake. You can lose weight by not eating if you are overweight. Trust me, I did it. As for the idea of "are you anorexic" I can tell you that you have all the physical symptoms such as hair loss, cold intolerance, no concentration, but doctors usually won't diagnos you as anorexic. You don't meet the "15% underweight" statistic. They may realize something is up when you have started to lose too much weight. You can. You can not eat anything at all. You will be fine but you will feel tired, anxious, angry, depressed, irritable, cold, dizzy and maybe worthless. Your heart rate will drop, your head will ache, you will burn ketones instead of glucose and this will give your tongue a thick, nasty-tasting coating and your breath will smell of acetone (this comes from using ketones.) You will not feel hungry or thirsty after a while, although you will still need water. You may also have bouts of euphoria (feeling incredibly good.) You will not be able to do anything active, stand up quickly or take hot baths or showers and life is boring when there are no meals, snacks, coffee breaks, cocktail parties or gatherings in it. You will lose a pound or two a week and when you reach your target weight and begin eating again you may suffer from edema, nausea, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, metabolic problems and other nasties. A true fast is not to be undertaken without commitment, the resources to have lots of downtime and above all medical advice.
Anorexia Nervosa is NOT a choice, one does not "become" anorexic. It is a mental illness that has a side effect of significant weight loss - so on this basis, someone medically overweight can BE anorexic, it just means that their symptoms will cause them to loose weight at a dangerous rate and, if they survive, they will have a BMI classified as anorxic.
Yes, because anorexia is a psychological problem anyone can become anorexic. However, if someone who is overweight is starving themselves its called EDNOS or eating disorder not otherwise specified. Anorexia is diagnosed by being in a certain weight percentile, and until an overweight or normal weight person is underweight they cannot be diagnosed as anorexic even if they meet all anorexic criteria except weight.There have been cases of severely obese people developing anorexia and becoming severely underweight. It is possible, it is dangerous, and if you or someone you know is showing signs of an eating disorder you should talk to a doctor or therapist before it gets too far.
anyone can get anorexia. first of all anorexia isn t an illness you catch from someone or someplace. its something that builds up in you step by step. but yes any one can become anorexic, but most people who become anorexic usually have a tendency towards it whether they realize it or not. if you are weight obsessed, weight dependent or have a low self esteem, you are more likely to become anorexic.
No. Asking if you can become anorexic in a week is like asking if you can become schizophrenia in a week. You don't become mentally ill in a week and you don't get to choose your mental illness. Someone could be triggered and symptoms could present themselves within a week but there would be underlying causes of the illness.
