(no subject)

Is anyone else here obsessed with knowing what other people eat? I just found out about this site on the news with clips of people crying while they eat, has anyone heard of cryingwhileeating.com? I still haven't decided what I think... the site has a clip of someone crying and eating and it tells what they are eating and why they are crying. I kept waiting for the reason for their tears to be because of what they were eating, one girl's reason was giving into temptation and she was eating a boiled egg and water. Weird, I know, just thought I would share.

Daily Calorie Burn...really?

Do you guys think this is accurate? Because that would be great. Does this count the part my body burns to stay alive?

Are YOU "pro-ana"?

Can I regurgitate a discussion?

There are so many new members here now, and I think it would be interesting to get a differant perspective on a 'hot topic' that really hasn't seen very much discussion.
I will certainly delete this if it is innappropriate.

Anyway, that discussion asks these questions (the bold questions are my own):

What is your view on the pro-ED movement? What are the positives and negatives? Can someone really be "pro-ED"?

Are YOU "pro-ed"?

Are you a member of pro-ed communities (or visit pro-ed websites)? If you are, how do you think they've affected you?


How would you define "pro-ed", or "pro-ana"?

Can a person be pro-ED and pro-recovery? What stereotypes do we have about the pro-ED movement. If you've noticed a change over the past year or two, what have they been?

What attracts people to them? Is it just having a "girl clique" to belong to, or is there something deeper and more meaningful?


Any other thoughts?


I think it would be interesting to see how responses differ in this more diverse group.
