Dear X
I sincerely hope that you are NOT serious. Anorexia is a dreadful and potentially fatal disease and not something anyone should try and develop or treat lightly. If you need to lose weight then get a grip on your life and use a balanced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet') together with regular exercise. If you are serious about your intention to become anorexic then Please consult a clinical psychologist first as you need to learn more positive coping skills. I'm sure you don't really want to self-destruct.
Take great care
