I use to do this trick when I was little. Pretend to eat spit it out and feed it to the dog but it was because I hated Brussels sprouts. My mom would call me fat ass and humiliating me at the dinner table.
I don't starve myself. I barely weight myself, when I do is only when I feel like a gain weight. If I see the number up I don't like it. I dont stop eating though,but I do have bad eating habits. I dont eat on time and I eat alot of junk food. I hate the idea of getting fat ,but I also hate looking skinny.
I just do not understand making them eat greasy and unhealthy food if it makes them not feel good and they verbalize that. How is that helping the situation? I understand that the mentality behind that is to help the girls see that they can overcome hard situations but it still doesn’t seem right to me?
:( I dealt with this all middle school. I wasn’t underweight but was doing things like binging and then restricting to purge it all, and I felt like no one would want to help me because I didn’t fit the correct criteria. It wasn’t to a point where I was hospitalized but it got so bad that I would refuse to go outside because I “wasn’t pretty enough”. I started experiencing school refusal in 8th grade until I FINALLY told my mom about my feelings. It was so fucking crazy but from January to May, I started recovering. Now I’m gonna be a freshman and sometimes the days are hard, I don’t even get my period hardly and my mom has decided to have me take prescribed vitamins regularly to make up for the health I’ve lost. I honestly now feel like a lazy and normal teen besides the anxiety I get sometimes and I’m glad. I didn’t have an eating disorder as severe as others have had it, but it still was there and I’m glad it’s going away. Kudos to the people in this video who suffered from EDs.
Umm this is a health center to eating healthy? Then why are they serving meat and dairy? This is a class A carcinogen that literally causes cancer! You want healthy? Serve vegan food especially raw vegan food cause that means you can eat all the plant based food you want and not feel guilty cause it’s plant based and only has natural recurring sugars and fats in it that’s won’t make you sick! Geez when will people learn that it’s not the carbs that make you fat, it’s sugar and man made shit you get at the fast food drive through thats bad for you! Eat plant based foods and you will be satisfied!
I used to be a cheerleader, and much like Taylor, I felt too fat to be on my team. It breaks my heart that her insecurity forced her into an eating disorder. I hope more knowledge is uncovered of this disorder.
I have never heard of EDNOS until now. I hav acid reflux (or other known as GERDS) and i hav had tht since i was a baby. Sometimes itd b fine but other times id get rlly bad stomach aches tht i just want to lay down and i cant b touched cuz i feel lik im sensitive at tht moment but when i was younger id puke a lot. Im on an acid reducer now, but i cant take tums or pepto bismol anymore cuz they wont help anymore, my stomach has grown immune to them so it wont help. Its hard to try certain foods and eat certain foods. I cant eat spicy foods and some other foods might not agree with my stomach. Im trying to slowly introduce new foods tho but i do hav those moments where i hav a bad stomach ache and i hav to sleep up right.
It just seems so weird to give one name to a seemingly infinite amount of differing eating disorders. The way they describe EDNOS it could be overeating or underrating or eating stuff you’re not supposed to be eating, it just seems like false hope to give someone a diagnosis that amounts to “yeah we don’t know”
It also makes the statement “most common and most deadly” kind of confusing because EDNOS could be any food related illness that doesn’t fit into the category of anorexia or bulimia,
I was accused of having anorexia from a psych that was way off. I suffered losing 2much weight due2 an undiagnosed chronic physical illness at the time. When I ate, my body would go in2 shock. It still happens. My weights norm tho now. I have a restriction issue due2 being afraid of how I'll feel after eating. I also have 2sis that do the same thing more severely, but they have diff chronic illnesses. But if they eat certain things, they'll shut down2, but in diff ways.
Oh I don't eat well and I am also constantly cold, can't concentrate, rarely menstruate, get night sweats, and am very weak and get queasy easily. I don't really care about what I look like, but sometimes your body is hungry but you aren't, so I usually just drink chocolate milk or an ensure rather than a full meal. Whoops.
OMG. I've been suffering from this for years. Holy fuck. Being depressed for so long. I've always been so skinny. But I feel large, I eat so much at night and nothing in the day, I don't eat when my parents do, I feel guilty and bad for eating.
I was 12 when I started starving myself. I didn’t even know it. I exercised all the time. I was 93 pounds and almost died. I am now 16 and 135 and I hate myself. I am still semi- anorexic? I feel like I have EDNOS but idk! Every once and a while I’m fine with not counting calories. And the 4 months I’m ok. I am freaking out rn about it. UGHHHHHH
Come to the black side. We love thickness! We love big hips, big ass and big thighs! Eating 2 plates at a party or restaurant is not looked down on. Hell, we wonder what your problem is if you DONT eat or you’re ordering salads instead of meat, bread and potatoes then desserts! It’s better than living with these ridiculous eating restrictions all for the sake of trying to look like a twig, that’s horribly unattractive anyway. No one wants a bone but a dog!
No one wants to admit it but eating disorders are often a result of fat shaming and body shaming. If someone is fat, shaming, ridiculing, and insulting them is not how you show you care about them and want them to be healthy. The internet is full of fat shaming and young women read those comments and messages and internalize it. They then become obsessed with losing weight and being skinny. They start comparing themselves to skinny celebrities and models. This is why body positivity is important. It’s not about glorifying obesity or promoting unhealthy eating habits, it’s about promoting self love, first and foremost, and the rest, the healthy eating habits and the exercising, comes from loving yourself. I wish anyone out there with an eating disorder all the best.
I wish I had her thighs, which is weird to say because I have an eating disorder too, but she’s classified as very attractive nowadays whereas I have slimmer legs and a heavier upper body. Makes me feel like shit about myself tbh.
A wealthy country such as USA ,(compared to other countries)-we intentionally starve ourselves of food, or purposely waste food by vomiting it out after we eat it. I have never understood the concept, but have been there. It is a sad situation, and hopefully someone can figure this out in todays world of science. Good luck to the ones who are suffering and hurting.
I had that for a while, then it just merged into full on anorexia. I remember how I never felt a slither of happiness through out that time. But as soon as I was hospitalised, I knew I had to change things. I wish the same for girls out there who go through any sort of eating disorder. You’re stronger than you think x
What I have against anorexia and bulimia is their mindset is that “fat is ugly” not blaming them at all that’s what they’ve been told its really **society** another thing that I hate is dieting the concept is so flawed diet foods are unhealthy for you most of the food we eat these days is fake anyways with GMOs the best way to diet is to focus on your health not your weight just eat organic food that has not been treated with anything make food from scratch exercise a healthy amount and instead of measuring your weight go to a doctor and ask him about your cholesterol and blood sugar.
Sometimes I wish I didn't need food. It stresses me out, costs money, and often makes me sick. Also milk used to be my favorite and now it tastes like cheese and real chocolate tastes like rubber.
It's easier some days to just not eat at all, even with medication.
I used to love to eat, now I wish I didn't need to.
I think it's important to know that like any issue it could be a life long struggle, something your helping yourself with everyday. Just like me who has PTSD , it's life long it doesn't just "go away" step by step like any recovery process. Progress not perfection
I always feel like I need change, so I stop eating for a day, then give up, binge, hate myself, (sometimes try to purge, throw up in kinda small amounts, ) then repeat. Because if I let myself starve, I’m rewarded with hunger. If I eat a lot then I have to get rid of it.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
