Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Anorexia nervosa. Young woman crouches in her underwear, in fear of gaining weight. She hides her head believing she is fat, a spotlight on her thigh highlighting her unfounded worry that she is developing cellulite on her legs. It is this fear of weight gain which characterizes the eating disorder anorexia nervosa (or "slimmers disease"). This intense and obsessional fear leads to the wilful avoidance of food and consequent severe weight loss. Sufferers become tired, weak, their hair thins and the menstrual cycle may cease. Teenage girls and young women are most often affected.
