Let’s talk about anorexia…

News

Anorexia nervosa (commonly referred to as anorexia) is an eating disorder and serious mental health problem. Someone with anorexia often has an intense fear of gaining weight and may have a distorted view of their body, thinking they’re fat even when they’re underweight.

People often think anorexia is about dieting, but it’s more complicated than that. It’s linked to low self-esteem, negative body image and many other factors.

Anyone can be affected by anorexia. While it’s more commonly reported by young women, anorexia is increasingly being reported by men and boys, women over the age of 40, and in children as young as seven.
