Macerate: verb – make softer by soaking in a liquid; erode or separate soft parts of something, by steeping; make something grow thinner or waste away, especially through fasting; to fret, vex or worry.

'Facing the pressures of the catwalk, the fashion model used diet and exercise to macerate her already lean figure, and, although her sponsors could see it was harming her, they did nothing to prevent it.'
