Manorexia: Reference to males suffering from anorexia nervosa. Research indicates that one in six eating disorders occurs in men and adolescent boys.  Some predict that this number may be as high as 25-30%, 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."
