Weight loss. Protruding ribs of a nude woman, illustrating severe weight loss. This could be the result of an eating disorder such as anorexia nervosa, a disorder that mostly affects teenage girls and young women. Food is avoided for fear of becoming fat, and severe weight loss can require hospital treatment to regain weight and a healthy body. Psychotherapy may be necessary to prevent a relapse.
