    I actually fucking hate myself. Everyone around me is noticing what I'm doing and I can't bring myself to care. It makes me so angry why do they have to notice? Why do I have to be like this, it's my problem but I'm making it theirs by being so stupid. Does anyone have tips to hide how...

    hi, So I find it very hard to focus or find the energy to work on school when I'm eating low cal.. Are there any foods that can help give you energy or at least less of the 'foggy' feeling? It's been getting really annoying. Thanks!

    hi everyone!! my name is brooke. i'm a 21 y/o college student in the US. I've struggled with restriction on and off since high school. Last year I started gaining a lot of weight, and I'm now a little over 100lbs over my LW from 3 years ago. Earlier this year I started purging for the first...

    Hello! I’ve recently fallen back into my eating disorder and I’ve lost quite a bit of weight (over 13 kg) and my co workers are noticing and pointing out that I’m skipping meals and becoming increasingly thinner. i of course deny having problems, and that I eat at home. Buy my problem is that...

    so I've been making the same snack/meal for over two weeks now almost everyday and it's so good that i wanted to share it with you. It's super easy and simple. 1. slice one apple (I like to do very thin/small slices so it's "more") 2. put in a pan and add water, let the apple absorb the water...

    So , I've reached my first goal weight 48 kg (106 lbs?) and honestly it's nothing like I expected it to be. I see a little difference, yes, but not as satisfying as i imagined it to be you know? My next goal weight is 45 kg (99 lbs) but I'm afraid that it will be the same and that I'll have to...

    hi, so i've been restricting for a long time but I don't really know the best amount of calories to stick to, if it's too low I'll end up binging (which results in purging, something I really don't want to do anymore). If I eat 'more' calories I feel like I'm not losing, sometimes even like...

    It's no secret that a lot of alcoholic drinks are quite high kcal so I was wondering what kinds of alcohol you feel safe drinking. I personally always drink cider but it doesn't actually get me drunk. I used to drink fruit beers but recently I've been terrified of the sugar in them. I don't like...

    Basically the question in the title. I have a habit when I'm restricting where I'll drink plain whiskey instead of eating dinner sometimes, and as long as I don't binge, I find I'll still lose, and being buzzed distracts me from being hungry. I drink whiskey mainly because I'm scared of carbs...

    Whenever I low restrict for a few days (500-800 calories) I seem to have a really hard time sleeping, even waking up many times during the night. Has anybody had this happen to them?

    I've been struggling with my ED for almost 4 years now and I feel like im getting no where. I lost around 5kg when i first developed my ED but due to being in and out of a binge cycle i started to gain weight. Up until March 2021 it was just a binging-restricting cycle but about April 2021 it...

    So- I practice harm reduction which includes that I don't SUPER low restrict. Please don't judge- I already beat myself up about this lol. I consume no less than 600 calories a day, no more than 1000. 99% of the time I eat 900 calories and burn between 100-300 daily. On average I eat 750 a...

    I noticed that I tend to heavily restrict when I have relationship problems or when I feel like the person I date is not fully interested in me. For example, some time ago, a guy ghosted me and I extremely restricted and excersised for weeks as losing weight was the only thing that made me feel...
