Anorexia Nervosa In Men

While women are the main ones known for having eating disorders, men are just as likely to have an eating disorder as well. You may notice a man restricting the amount of foods that he eats or even the kinds of foods he eats. This restriction can get extreme. Sometimes men limit themselves to only eating two certain foods. This is leaving a lot of important nutrients out of the body that is necessary for sustaining health. Some men may even develop food rituals. There may be certain times they eat, certain times they do not eat, and even times when they plan on purging. Even going as far as concentrating more on body building rather than what is actually going into their body. Exercising an extreme amount can cause some men to completely forget about the fact that they need to eat. Also, weighing themselves constantly is another sign that there may be a problem with there eating and eating patterns.
