I was browsing around and I came across this photo. I found it very, very disturbing. Most of you would too. But don’t be surprised that most of these girls start off being healthy normal girls. But because of their misconception that thin is beautiful, they keep on going on major crash diets and over exercising to the brink of insanity. This is an obsession called anorexia.

What is anorexia? According to Wikipedia, Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by refusal to maintain a healthy body weight, and an obsessive fear of gaining weight due to a distorted self image. It can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, background or culture.

There are many symptoms of anorexia, but the most acute would be your definition of thin. If your friends, family and doctor tells you that you are too thin and you still keep dieting, maybe it is time for you to sit back and do a little more thinking. Or even better, go seek professional psychological help. Well, unless you want to look like that girl in the photo above.
