Re: Is a bmi of 15.1 considered anorexic?
I do have to say that's very thin and an anorexic BMI, but it may depend upon your age as well. If you're in your early teens and after a growth spurt, it may be normal. However, if you're closer to 18 years old, it's quite underweight and may even be dangerous especially if you are obsessing over your weight, dieting, or overexercising. I had very severe anorexia when I was in college. I'm 5'4" and at my lowest weighed about 80 lb. All my periods stopped and I generally started to feel horrible (tired, dizzy, heart hurt) once my weight went below 105 lb. I was severely restricting my food intake and overexercising a lot. If you think you have an eating disorder, please do get help. It's nothing to mess around with and the longer you struggle with it, the harder and harder recovery becomes.
