Claire – Anorexia

Anorexia is the fear of becoming fat. People with anorexia believe when they look in the mirror they are fat, when they are actually very skinny. They may also have a need to be perfect. They also may have a culture that emphasizes thinness. They can also they have a high levels of anxiety and restrict their eating to reduce it. When people don’t eat they lose all their body fat and that can cause bone loss, abnormal heart rhythms or heart problems.

I picked anorexia because I was curious why people would stop eating to become skinny and beautiful, but actually they look terrifying.
