Anorexia is a serious medical problem, but it’s a medical problem with a psychological overlie. People who have anorexia actually have a distorted body image. They feel that there is something wrong with them. That they weigh too much. As a result, they eat far less and can get into big trouble. Even when they are losing weight, they continue to think they weigh too much, and that’s part of the problem with anorexia. People who have anorexia nervosa have to have the psychological issues dealt with as well as the weight issues.
