Anorexia nervosa is a type of eating disorder wherein a person has an unhealthy relationship with food due to poor body image. Most individuals diagnosed with this disease are usually underweight since they eat an inadequate amount of food that is way below the daily recommended food intake due to extreme fear of gaining weight. Moreover, it is associated with more serious symptoms such as slowed heart rates and breathing rates due to poor nutrition.
