Community Pro-Ana -


This is in contrast to the fat acceptance thread. This thread is to discuss the Pro-Ana movement. Which treats anorexia as a lifestyle choice instead of a disease. There is also a sub type called Pro-Mia for Bulimia.

Here is a list called seventy reasons not to eat from a pro-Ana website

Smug Ellen Page
True & Honest Fan
I know someone who's suffered from anorexia and it almost killed her. The fact that there's 'pro anorexia' people deeply disturbs me. It's no more respectable than 'pro cancer' to me. It is irrefutably a disease, and not one that should be taken lightly.

See, these kinds of bloggers really glamorize anorexia and skipping meals.And a lot of people become enamored by this image that they try to instill upon people when it's not real.

In reality you have really bad mood swings and can almost or actually faint from being light headed all the time and end up alienating people around you because all you focus on is starving yourself and getting the "perfect body" which you never seem to be able to attain. Your anxiety eventually reaches a paramount and you worry about eating, getting caught not eating, having to eat in public, people looking at what you eat, people looking at the food you buy, cashiers looking at the size tags of the clothing when they're bagging it up, things that people take for granted. Suddenly a trip to the shop with your friends during break for a snack becomes an obstacle. You make up excuses not to go, you throw your lunch in the bin when nobody is looking and tell your friends you've eaten already or you didn't have the time to make lunch and have no money to buy it. You start to lie all the time, just to skip meals.

You do stupid things to yourself which you later will begin to regret. You then begin to lose control of other aspects of your life. Your immune system becomes fucked up from not eating and you get to the point where a cold turns into pneumonia and you're in and out of the hospital. Your health suddenly becomes secondary and this kind of thing is really really hard to snap out of because when you think you have you unconsciously find yourself making decisions based on what would make you thinner quicker. You lose sight of many, many things because you focus on something you think will make you happy which in reality could kill you...

It's a dangerous world to say the least and it angers me that there are people out there beckoning young people into this, it's so hard to get out of and the level of stigma people who don't understand it give you is quite alienating. When people you've lied to find out you've been lying to them the relationship between you becomes strained and changes completely. It's not a desirable lifestyle at all. It's destructive and it's not something you can ever wish or would ever want to wish on anybody. These pro ana bloggers are not lol-cows, they're shudder cows to me. How they can basically try and make somebody want to suffer from a mental illness, completely willingly gets me so, so, so mad and sickens me to the core. It's somewhat of a personal topic to the point where it actually ruffles my feathers.

I could go on for hours about the damage these people have done and how they feed the whole norm within parts of today's society where it's completely acceptable to completely loathe yourself to the point where you spend most of your days seeing posts and hearing people wish their own death on themselves day in and day out.

This really pisses me off. You know why? I was a bulimic for a while due to the fact that my psych meds were making me fat even when I didn't eat and the guy who was prescribing the meds just said "tough shit" so I started making myself vomit after I ate. If I wasn't taking the meds, I would have been anorexic because I was literally only drinking a glass of milk a day and often times I'd throw that up just out of habit. I didn't tell anybody because I thought nobody would believe me, keep in mind despite not eating literally anything I was still very chunky. Now these people are glorifying and most of the time just pretending they have something that almost made me die, because if I hadn't gotten better, I either would have starved or just killed myself.

I kind of want to choke a bitch now. I have seriously never been more pissed off in my life.

Stopped reading after this, how in the fuck is can an eating disorder be a "lifestyle choice", while were at it we might as well call diabetes or cancer a lifestyle choice.

Seriously some people are beyond retarded nowadays.


Here are a list of diets I found on a Pro-Ana website

Five Bites Diet
The diet has been described as 'mental gastric bypass surgery'. Obese people can get their stomachs stapled, so that they feel full on only a few bites of each meal. This diet therefore takes a fair bit of self control, the first 3 days were the hardest for me, it then got quite a bit easier.
The creator of the diet suggests 5 bites of each meal, but I have made it 3 bites, because this is closer to how much a gastric bypass patient can usually eat.

3 bites of porridge (oatmeal) made with skimmed milk and 1 tsp sugar

3 bites of ham sandwich

3 bites of lasagne

Its important that drinks are consumed that have no calories. Such as diet coke, water, herbal teas, tea or coffee.
