Virginia Beach Hypnosis… Anorexia is a serious eating disorder that affects women and men of all ages. It can damage your health and even threaten your life. But you’re not alone.
Anorexia affects approximately 60,000 to 200,000 people, and it’s estimated that 1% of people aged between 10 and 20 suffer from anorexia each year. The condition can be characterized by an obsession with weight loss resulting in refusal to eat or irregularity in eating patterns. Sufferers become obsessive about eating rituals and develop an unusual way of eating, e.g. skipping meals and avoiding certain food, selecting a small variety of foods and only eating them in very small quantities.

Because of your dread of becoming fat or disgusted with how your body looks, eating and mealtimes may be very stressful. And yet, what you can and can’t eat is practically all you can think about.
But no matter how skinny you become, it’s never enough. While people with anorexia often deny having a problem, the truth is that anorexia is a serious and potentially deadly eating disorder.
Anorexia is not about weight or food…
Anorexia isn’t really about food and weight. Eating disorders are much more complicated than that. The food and weight-related issues are symptoms of something deeper: like depression, loneliness, insecurity, pressure to be perfect, or feeling out of control.
