It might not be anorexia, but it may be an EDNOS, a type of eating disorder with less strict guidelines for diagnosis.

Whatever the specific diagnosis is, it is definitely an eating disorder and dangerous. Even if you are getting enough micronutrients, you are certainly not getting enough of something far more urgent: energy. Only go below 1200 if you are directed to by your doctor, because as mentioned 1200 C the minimum the average person needs to eat, just for fuel the vital processes of the body and brain if you spend the entire day at rest. If it doesn't get that, the body will start using up its stores and eating away at itself to keep the brain fueled. This can cause permanent damage to your heart, or other organs, sometimes bad enough to kill you.

Just because you only eat 600-700 calories DOES NOT make you anorexic. The only way you would be considered having an eating disorder or "anorexic" is if you eat that many calories in order to lose weight....or with these signs:

1) look in the mirror and are never satisfied with the way you look. You always think you need to lose weight. Sometimes, you can be bigger and do this, but the thing is if you lose a certain amount of weight and instead of thinking "great, go me!" you automatically think "i could lose some more..."

2) You are obsessed with calories/counting calories. whether that's not eating foods because you don't know the calories in them, or keeping food diaries so that you can keep track of every single thing you consume.

3) you are obsessed with weighing yourself. (once a week is normal or healthy. obsession is weighing every day, or more than once a day, tracking your weight and over-reacting to tiny fluctuations in weight)

4) You have a BMI of less than 18

How do you make your fat hamster skinny again?

Obesity in animals works the same way that it does in people (I am assuming that your hamster actually is fat, and that you have not misdiagnosed it on the basis of either some kind of projective anorexia, or pregnancy). If calories eaten exceed calories burned, weight increases. If calories eaten are less than calories burned, weight decreases. If you feed your hamster less it will be eating less calories. I don't know if it has an exercise wheel, but running on the exercise wheel is a way that hamsters burn calories. They cannot be trained to lift barbells.
