If your friends think that you are skinny, yet you try to restrict calories due to fear of gaining weight, then you might be suffering from anorexia nervosa
. It is usually seen in the age group you belong to. Consult a specialist for evaluation, because, if untreated there might be serious complications, both physical and psychological.

where the patient has a distorted view of his/her body image (thinking one is overweight

(cessation of menstrual cycles)
