Anorexia and Exercise Addiction
People struggling with anorexia have a strong desire to control their body weight by severely restricting their food-intake, and they are also afraid of gaining weight. In order to feel calmer, they may eat less, purge, use laxatives or compulsively exercise.
When exercise becomes more and more extreme, it might result in exercise addiction. Anorexia patients may use excessive exercise as a way to control their weight, become thinner and cope with their pathological fear of gaining weight.
