Zach was an exchange student in Japan. The food was all
quite unfamiliar, and he was much larger (and hairier) than all of the Japanese
boys in his class. He felt like an ogre in comparison to his new classmates. He
also missed the familiarity of the food from home. He started skipping lunch
and found that he felt much less self-conscious in the afternoon. His
restricting got out of hand as he lost a lot of weight fast. His host family
notified the school, and he was sent back home for medical care. Discuss the
likely genetic and environmental factors that contributed to Zach developing
anorexia nervosa.
