Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by extreme weight loss, fear of gaining weight, and a distorted body image. People with anorexia often restrict their food intake to the point where they become dangerously thin. Other symptoms may include excessive exercise, preoccupation with food or calories, and changes in behavior such as social withdrawal or irritability. Anorexia can have serious physical and psychological consequences if left untreated. Treatment typically involves psychotherapy, nutritional counseling, and medical monitoring.
