The pressures to look our best and to conform to beauty standards are getting harder every year. With the help of social media, the pictures of unrealistically polished stars are within reach of boys and girls everywhere. And since kids and teenagers have a very tender psyche and a lot less self-esteem than adults, the sickness, called anorexia nervosa is more prominent among the younger generation. This psychological eating disorder leads people to starve themselves to look their best supposedly. And once the grip of anorexia holds you, there's no way you can stop it without getting help from professionals. Many anorexia stories end in death, even amongst famous people. Singer Karen Carpenter, American author Michael Krasnow and model Isabelle Caro just to name a few. It's no surprise that most of those who have been through it call such experience a living hell, and once you see the anorexia pictures, it isn't so hard to believe.
Fortunately, these people on the list below managed to beat the illness and regain the weight after their anorexia recovery - along with restoring their lives, their sanity, and happiness. If you are someone who suffers from anorexia or you know anyone with an eating disorder, remember that you are not alone. Do not hesitate to ask for the help you need.
