Anorexic Girls

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by refusal to maintain a healthy body weight and an obsessive fear of gaining weight. It is often coupled with a distorted self image which may be maintained by various cognitive biases that alter how the affected individual evaluates and thinks about her or his body, food and eating. Persons with anorexia nervosa continue to feel hunger, but deny themselves all but very small quantities of food.

The average caloric intake of a person with anorexia nervosa is 600-800 calories per day, but there are extreme cases of complete self-starvation. It is a serious mental illness with a high incidence of comorbidity and the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder. Girls with anorexia are at risk for a number of serious health problems, including osteoporosis (bone loss), kidney disease, liver disease, heart failure, and even death. Anorexic girls are often not aware of the serious risks posed by their condition and may not seek the treatment they need.

Many of these photos are horrible, but I really hope that after you see these, if you are a woman, you will never be like them…If you are a man I really hope that you don’t like this kind of “sexy” anorexic women.

anorexic and model should not go together - i remember a time when a model was a picture of health and someone to aspire to be like, instead of this which promotes a sad and deadly disease.

Please remove images 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 25. These images are of myself and were taken and distributed during a time when I was very unwell and unable to fully comprehend the negative implications of sharing them.

I do not wish for these images to be used as 'thinspiration', and whilst that isn't the intent of this page specifically- I know from past experience that sufferers will seek out these sort of photos for self-deprecating purposes.

Anorexia is a devastating, cruel illness. The way the media trivialises and glamourises it is a disgrace.

Hi love. Trust me. You are not doing your body any good. Your only young and are still growing up. If you starve your self now it will lead on to a life time of trouble. Organ failure rotten teeth thin hair. No energy to even move.life is for living. If you are worried about your weight just eat six small meals s day drink lots of water. Fresh fruit. Don't smoke and drink in moderation. X

Anorexia is a serious mental disease and isn't something to be gawked at. And actually, while many models do starve themselves to be thin, many famous ones ,like twiggy, are naturally bony
