There is an abnormal behavior that seems at this time we escaped the attention of anorexia nervosa. This is very reasonable considering this behavior is deemed not to cause harmful effects when this behavior is closely related between the physical and psychic person. Anorexia nervosa is a mental disorder associated with diets that are often found to occur in women and is a form of self-torture that resulted from excessive fear that the body will be fat if you eat. Authors interested in doing this research with the aim to determine the factors underlying the disorders of anorexia nervosa and psychological condition of patients with anorexia nervosa and efforts that have been taken by people with anorexia nervosa to reduce or stop the disorder. This study used descriptive qualitative research method with the method asessmen through interviews of two subjects with anorexia nervosa. For the validity of data used triangulation techniques. From the result showed that the factors that cause anorexia nervosa in subjects came from dissatisfaction with body shape that eventually led to insecurity. Coupled with the perception in the subject that looks perfect is if it has a slim body, and a strong desire to have a slim body like the models on television. Psychological symptoms that accompany these two subjects are anxiety, insomnia, loss of appetite, feelings of guilt and difficulty concentrating. Besides that, they became more reclusive. Both subjects are unaware that what they experience today closely linked to the psychic that efforts they are doing to overcome anorexia nervosa had happened to them was limited to cope with physiological disturbances that accompany it so that the disturbances they experience anorexia nervosa can not be cured. Family and friends are the people who always give support to the subject.
