The body does, but it can only store for so long

Anorexia is a mental illness, so it's not like a process which physically the body can control. To begin with, the body will go into survival mode however this can't last forever and people with anorexia can suffer for many years, which is how they lose weight. The body sub consciously controls processes such as retaining fat etc, however with a mental illness there is no way for the body to shut it out. Hope this answers your question :)

because there's a difference between starving and throwing up. If you're lets say sticking your finger down your throat, your body can't do anything to prevent itself from throwing up because it's a natural reflex.

It is a mental disease, not a physical one. As you eat less than you're used to, metabolism slows down. Anything you eat is usually energy immediately stored. If you stop eating altogether, the body misses out on numerous vital nutrients. You lirerally waste away as each organ weakens and shuts down.
