Manorexia:This is a none medical term used to refer to males suffering from anorexia nervosaResearchers have estimated that men and adolescent boys represent roughly 10% of the individuals who are treated for eating disorders.  Some predict that this number may be as high as 25-30%, as eating disorders are often overlooked in men, with binge eating disorder occurring almost equally in males and females.  Despite the increase in reported male eating disorder cases, many men and boys continue to suffer in silence because they believe that eating disorders are a "female problem."
