Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Anorexia nervosa. Girl's fearful face reflected in a fork which has a twirl of spaghetti on it. Her anxious look reflects her fear of eating and gaining weight. This fear of becoming fat characterizes the eating disorder anorexia nervosa (or "slimmers disease"). Such obsessional fear leads to the avoidance of food and consequent severe weight loss. Sufferers are overactive, and exercise much of the time. As they lose weight they become tired, weak, their hair thins and the menstrual cycle may cease. Food binges may be followed by vomiting or taking laxative drugs. Teenage girls and young women are most often affected.
