Is anorexia real?

Do they actually see themselves as overweight when they look in the mirror?

    People so labelled are covered by insurance for certain benefits. Otherwise, there'd be no treatment options provided. See DSM V, section eating disorders for definitions. Every case is unique.

    Yes.  Anorexia is a mental illness.  It warps the victim's perception of reality.
