Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18, Text 37

Anorexia is a peculiar bodily disorder in which the patients need food, but don’t feel any appetite. This lack of bodily appetite is natural yet unnatural; it seems natural as long as the patients are in the grip of anorexia, but is seen to be unnatural as soon as they become healthy.
