Anorexia Nervosa is a condition of excessive deliberately induced weight loss. It usually starts as a result of dieting or excessive commitment to physical exercise. It soon leads to a total preoccupation with body weight and shape and rigid control of eating. Individuals become completely absorbed in their dieting and exercising so their ability to relate to their family and friends is disturbed.
