    Yes it is.  I was actually pulled off of the wrestling team for cutting too much weight and threatened with hospitalization if I didn't put it back on.  Since I hated needles, and thus IVs, I chose the stuffing my face route.  Being too thin can cause heart problems in both men and women, and serious health complications for women.  I don't think that it's worse than being obese, but it's definitely running alongside of it.
