People with anorexia try to keep their weight as low as possible, usually by restricting the amount of food they consume. They often have a distorted image of themselves, thinking that they are fat when they are not. Some people tend to exercise excessively and some eat a lot of food in a short space of time. They also make themselves sick or use purging. They often go to great attempts to hide their behaviour from family and friends by lying about what they have eaten or pretend to have eaten earlier. The main symptom of anorexia is losing a lot of weight deliberately. For example, by:
Eating as little as possible, making you vomit, over-exercising – burning more calories than they consume in a day. A person with anorexia will want their weight as low as possible much less than average for their age and height. After eating they may try to get rid of food from their body by making themselves sick. The need to obsessively burn calories usually draws people with anorexia to high-impact activities, such as running, dancing .Some people will use any available opportunity to burn calories, such as preferring to stand rather than sit. They may try to make food pass through their body as quickly as possible. For example, by taking:
