1. Anna is a 20-year-old college student who is slightly overweight. Anna is neat and orderly and considered to be a perfectionist. Anna has a sister, Margie, who is 2 years younger and has always been very slim. Anna thinks that she is ugly and that her sister is pretty. Anna began a daily diet of 500 calories with a rigid exercise program to lose weight rapidly. Anna’s weight decreased below the normal amount for her height. Anna continued to diet by reducing her daily caloric intake to 250 calories and then to 100 calories and began to look emaciated. Anna’s parents asked her to increase her food intake, but Anna said that she was “still fat and ugly.” Anna’s parents intervened by taking her to a psychiatrist for treatment. Anna’s diagnosis was anorexia nervosa.
