Yes, anorexia does not necesarilly involve purging, that usually linked with bulimia.

If your BMI is very low, yet you fear food and fear gaining weight and feel fat even though you aren't it does sound like annorexia.

It is not actually about the food. It's about other psychological issues which you have. If you can resolve those the food issues go away on their own.

Please talk to somebody and try to get help.
