there's also the fact that these epic!lazy!things (like lying in bed all day) aren't actually pleasurable.

That's an incredibly good point, actually, and one I had thought of when I first thought of making this post and then forgot to actually add.

And as regards the rest of your post, while that technically does not meet criteria, it's sort of like the "anorexia-lite" thing where someone who knows where the physical cutoff for anorexia nervosa is in the DSM IV deliberately maintains weight just above that cutoff by restrictive/disordered means. That can be almost as serious of a problem, in terms of the thoughts and mental stress that go into it, and in some cases it can have equivalent physical effect (for instance, my build is such that I could have a BMI well above that cutoff with ZERO percent body fat).
