I can't say anorexic because that's an ED.. but.. she definitely looks like she'd fall under the "healthy" category for her BMI. She doesn't even fill out the swim suit... While I'm not trying to criticize her as a person, her as the abstract or the selling point of "ideal" does bother me.
I've met plenty of healthy slim girls my age that are already at the lower ends of their BMI, but want to lose more weight.. and these are the girls that influence their internalizations.

It's weird how disconnected the media can cause people to become about their own bodies.
It's bad when a person that is actually overweight and dieting has to tell another person to eat and stop working out twice a day if she wants her period back! (old roommate) *sigh*
