See Doctor: If you are truly limiting your daily caloric intake to 200 calories per day there is no way you will maintain healthy weight. You need to be seen by a doctor immediately so that appropriate treatment and evaluation can be initiated. Anorexia is a serious condition that can have very severe complications if not addressed early on.
