They stop eating altogether or just partly in the hope that it they will become more attractive. Unfortunately it is very bad for you. They tend to find it difficult to stop, their periods stop and they can get very weak and ill.Answer
Anorexics see themselves as over-weight, but, it's actually a way to control their life because no one can make them eat. They may have had a life of too many restrictions and feel suffocated that everyone is telling them what to do. It's generally psychological, but I do believe it's not always a choice and I think science will find out it's a short circuit in the brain. Already they are finding there is something in the brain that can make some people obese.
Anorexics DO NOT eat protein (thus, the brain and other organs suffer from the lack of protein.) They will water down juices (not getting enough vitamin C or other vitamins they need), will eat mostly small bite sized pieces of veggies, fruits, salads and spread it around on their plate to make it look like more. They often love to cook for others, but seldom will eat much themselves. They will try any distraction they can so others won't notice they aren't eating much.
The beginning of the weight lossisn't too bad and the Anorexic feels they are losing the weight they want, but unfortunately, the habit has set in and enough becomes not enough. Soon the body starts to eat away at itself, the heart, lungs and other organs fail (mainly the kidneys and heart and it can lead to heart attacks.) Anorexia without treatment leads to death!
I wouldn't advise it. Period. Nor am I going to help you kill yourself.
It depends on the individual. Some anorexics only lose a few pounds, while some may lose 50 pounds. Usually, the average person who is anorexic will lose 20 to 30 pounds before treatment or intervention occurs.
Varies from person to person.
You can lose up to three pounds every day if you eat nothing at all.
You lose about 2 pounds every day Well i did and that was with 4 hours exercise
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.
They can be bulimic but not anorexic. Actually, a person can certainly be mentally anorexic regardless of their weight. I believe that weight or BMI should not be so important when diagnosing anorexia. Anyone can be psychologically anorexic.
if they're already skinny not alot, if they're not about a stone.
An anorexic is a person who suffers from anorexia.
you can be anorexic at any weight but to be diagnosed, a person has to be 15% below their recommended body weight.
Healthily, a person lose lose 2 or 3 pounds a week. Under the watch of a nutritionist or trainer, they can healthiy lose 5 to 8 pounds a week.
Anorexia and bulimia are very serious eating disorders. People who are anorexic or bulimic can lose as much or as little weight possible. Some people can be 10 pounds underweight, some can be 40 pounds underweight. If you know someone who is anorexic or bulimic tell them that you are worried about them and strongly encourage them to get professional help.
You're anorexic. I have an idea, work on your self esteem, not your weight.
There are some ano tips that can make you lose 3-5 pounds a week--however your only suppossed to do that once a month. I would say going intense ano--with a little work out you can lose 10 pounds easy a month.

If a person exercises a lot and diets properly, they can lose up to 10 pounds or so in 2 weeks. The average person, however, would lose up to 5 pounds.
it depends on several factors such as the severity of the anorexia. an anorexic could lose as much as 10 kilograms (22lbs) in a week.
it depends. if you are a grown person you will lose at least 1.1 pounds a week. if your young you will lose about 3.3 pounds every week.
Running and lifting is a way better option. Combined with a regular diet, you can lose weight pretty quick. Anorexia just causes depression and death. I know people who've been taken to the hospital for becoming anorexic for just a little bit. Please don't become anorexic, I've seen enough lives ruined by this disease. I'm here for you if you need me.
the veronicas are not anorexic. they are just naturally thin although they did lose some weight in 2008. they are not anorexic though.
Well it really depends on how they diet. If they go on a fast, they may lose 5 or 6 lbs a week, so just times that by four. It varies with people, you know? Some peoples bodies will lose weight faster than others.
If a person is 5'6 and weighs 143 pounds, they can lose weight by eating right. People can also exercise regularly, which will also help people lose 20 pounds.
