hi, my question was. Why is it that an anorexic woman who engages in all eating disordered behaviors than many other anorexics do, but yet there is not a severe amount of weight loss.. The restriction of food is there, the numberous hours at the gym.. Yet it seems a medical mystery as to why this person never gets her weight low enough to be classified as anorexic to an insurance company.. It is EDNOS.. Was wondering why this happens, why doesn't this person lose weight depsite all the excersise and restricting.. Does your metabolism slow down from 25 years of doing this????
