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.

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.

There is no exact one cause of anorexia. Some causes are... * Dieting gone too far or out of control * Depression, BDD (Body Dismorphic Disorder), distorted body image, OCD or "perfectionist" problems * Media portrayal of "thin is good", peer pressure (some dispute these, though) * Genetics / Biological (if your parent was anorexic, there is a higher chance you might become anorexic, too) * Insecurities about one's body * Stressful lives, people thinking that food is the only thing they can "control"

You can't get an anorexic dog, they must be ill take them to the vets. This is what happened to one of my dogs, it was just her teeth falling out.

Yes, anorexia nervosa is a state of mind in which one feels to be that he or she has to become thinner and thinner and has an intense fear of getting fatter.

No. It will cause you medical problems and can eventually lead to death. Find more appropriate methods of controlling your weight. In my opinion - eating healthy and staying active is a much better alternative.

It seldom is ever just one person who makes a mean comment about weight that forces someone to become anorexic. Often, it takes many comments of some period of time for the person to begin to develop their anorexic tendencies. Usually it is coupled with low self esteem and low body image.

You don't. Being anorexic is not healthy, and one can not look anorexic without being anorexic, or having some other health problem. Even a lot of exercise will not actually make you look anorexic, unless you're body starts autocannibalizing itself.

Yes. A person with one type of eating disorder is more prone to developing or "meshing in" another eating disorder than the average person is.

No, Zayn Malik from One Direction is not anorexic its his religion (Muslim) That he only eats Bread and Drinks Water by the end of a month. He is totally fine :)

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.
