Eucharist as Food
I had never heard the term "holy anorexics" until last week. It refers to saints and holy people (like Catherine of Siena) who ate little or nothing besides for receiving Eucharist frequently. I am not an expert on this topic. However, I have been ATTEMPTING to fast regularly for almost 30 years now. Sometimes it is really hard. My most successful attempts have been after receiving Eucharist. TRY IT!
