this is how i see it from all I've experienced: no one just gets up one day and suddenly thinks they're fat then decides not to eat. they feel horrid about eating and it makes them feel extreme guilt and they have been obsessing about their body size. and they do decide not to eat because of the way they feel after eating. and they think they will achieve perfect body from all of this, even thought they are slowly dying and will not see if they are getting thinner, because in their heads, they are getting fatter. It is a psychological problem with the person. It's about the last control they feel they have in their lives. In many cases people that become Anorexic feel every part of their lives is controlled by parents, or their peers. The parents could be controlling, or, achievement of that young person is high (don't fail, always win.) The last thing they have control over is their eating habits. They begin to see themselves as looking fat, and, as the above poster said can obsess about their body size. When they look in the mirror (even if their body has become skeletal in appearance) they still feel they are fat. Most Anorexics experience hurt inside of them and feel if they change their body image their lives will be more rewarding and the hurt will go away.
