What is Anorexia Nervosa?

Anorexia Nervosa is a serious eating disorder characterized by an intense fear of gaining weight, leading to restrictive eating behaviors and a distorted body image. Individuals with anorexia often strive to maintain a significantly low body weight, which can severely impact their physical and mental health.
