Anorexia: You have to start somewhere, so yes, presumably one can be normal, average weight when anorexia first sets in. However, if left untreated, eating disorder will eventually result in becoming underweight. Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anorexia/basics/definition/con-20033002 for more info. Then see your Family Doc for treatment & referral as appropriate.
