Extreme dieting- Anorexia Nervosa
extreme dieting is different to comfort eating. when a person diets to an extreme it is most likely that they are very under weight and are malnutrition. they would lack in vital vitamins and are probably in taking under 1000 calories a day! this maybe down to the fact that they might be suffering from an illness called Body Dis-morphia or Anorexia Nervosa. it is really tough to over come and is severely dangerous as it can lead to death! also once suffering from this it is hard to ever maintain a normal body weight.
