  1. I think it's time the people became aware an eating disorder can often be a sign of something much more dangerous if the person suffering it doesn't receive appropriate treatment, supervision and limitations. If they don't, they tend to fit the profile of one of the Dark Triad type of dysfunctional personalities: manipulative: ruthless, controlling and completely without empathy or proper care toward their own children, simply using them as a form of collateral or leverage for extreme manipulation. Tears aren't real but tantrums are.

  2. What is the best product or brand to lost crazy amounts of fat? I read lots of superb opinions on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can help you lost tons of fat. Has anyone tried using this popular lose weight methods?

  3. This video is wonderful! It helps me remember of the time when my spouse used Custokebon Secrets to get rid of 16 pounds and enjoy being healthy again! Most people would like to lose fat, however we also need to stay nutritious, and that's exactly what Custokebon Secrets gifted.

  4. Its still surprise me just how some people do not know about Custokebon Secrets although lots of people with it. Thanks to my personal mate who told me about this. I've lost a ton of weight.

  5. I never found starving “easy.” But the payoff was so amazing I just overrode the hunger. It was an absolute drug for me. But starving was never “easy.”

  6. I was diagnosed with anorexia over 12 years ago.. and to me anorexia was always like an addiction to me rather than a diet. I was addicted to my control over my body, and the hunger I felt.

  7. I guess I'm not the only one who was genuinely offended by that annoying title?
    Now that I'm here, I'm going to roast this talk.
    The common element between anorexics and obese is malnutrition or lack of good nutrition. Both will have metabolisms that have slowed down to compensate. Both will have lack of skeletal muscle contributing to metabolic slow down.

    An obese person is effectively starving because of dysregulation of homeostatic and endocrine mechanisms causing excess storage of fat and lack of ability to access it.
    An anorexic has been living off body tissues for a long period of time. They are remarkable in that the metabolic rate will have reduced to a minimum that is biologically possible.

    The difference between the two is one is a mental disorder while the other is a hormonal/endocrine dysregulation.

  8. Well, as someone who has lived on 500 calories or less for a long period of time and being diagnosed with an ED I just wanna say. it's not that it's easy. for me it was a compulsion. I get offended by people saying it's easy for people with AN and how they have such self control etc, it's not a choice, it's just impossible to let oneself enjoy food.

  9. Hello, have you thought about this diet plan known as the Fenoboci Diet Plan? My cousin says it helps people lost crazy amounts of weight. Is that possible? I also heard numerous great review about this diet plan. Thoughts?

  10. I would like to add to this, a cultural aspect. If you look at the chart you see the majority of obesity rates happening in the deep South. Being from there, I believe that could be due to the traditional foods being very high calorie. The reason why the obesity rate wasn't higher before, was because the price of food in relation to buying power of the average person wasn't at the point where the average person could have their favorite high calorie options on a daily basis. When I was growing up there our meals often consisted of things we could get extremely cheaply, such as locally grown vegetables, homemade breads, and pan-fried meat. Things like deep-fried and high calorie options such as waffles, pancakes, fried chicken, gravy, deserts– were enjoyed only on special occasions due to their cost. Now, those sorts of foods can be enjoyed daily at low cost, and we can see the results in the sudden increase of obesity of those areas.

  11. Not difficult for anorexics? Not… difficult? I don't know whether this is meant to be insulting or if it is just down to ignorance. For the life of me, I can't imagine a third option. I mean have you ever actually asked someone with an ED how easy it is for them? (Or are you making assumptions?)
