Abstract: While the following discussion will explore several different extreme patterns of behavior in comparison to anorexia nervosa, attention will be focused primarily on high-altitude mountaineering. This pattern was selected as it shares many parallels with the disorder while simultaneously highlighting two especially salient and important aspects of anorexia nervosa: high-altitude mountaineering resembles (indeed, exceeds) anorexia nervosa in deadliness and both pursuits are highly influenced by the social contexts within which they exist. Ultrarunning, and to a lesser extent competitive birding, will also be given additional attention in the following discussion as these four extreme behaviors (i.e., anorexia nervosa, competitive birding, high-altitude mountaineering, and ultrarunning) were examined most closely in the present study.
