Tips & Tricks

Basic/General Rules 

  1. RULES, RULES, RULES. This is important. You need to set rules for yourself, and if you are truly ana, you will have no problem sticking to them because you are STRONG! Rules are everything. Examples: Don’t eat anything white. Do not, under any circumstances, eat after 6:00. Don’t eat before 3:00. Cut each bite into x amount of pieces, chew x amount of times. Do not eat anything that has over 3 grams of fat. Make your own and keep adding to them.
  2. Ana must be the center of your life.
  3. Drink a full glass of water before you eat and then sip a full glass between bites, you’ll get full much faster. Remember it takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full.
  4. Eat denser food because it feels like more. Light and fluffy foods compact in your digestive tract and you will feel hungry soon after.
  5. Take out only the amount of food you plan to eat and don’t allow seconds.
  6. Think before you eat. Don’t eat while distracted (TV, etc). Stop and consider if you really want to eat that then consciously give yourself permission.
  7. 4 100-calorie meals is better than one 400-calorie meal.
  8. Never eat anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and you’ll get hungry more. If you need to, eat more frequently, not bigger amounts.
  9. Slim-Fast and other “healthy” bars and shakes have more carbs and calories than in the meal they’re intended to replace. Stay away.
  10. Drink at least a glass of water every hour. It’s better for weight loss to sip throughout the day than to chug a full glass (except before eating, in which case it can make you eat less, or make you slightly nauseous so you don’t want to eat at all). Try keeping a water bottle somewhere you’ll see it a lot, like every 10-20 minutes, and take a drink from it every time you see it/notice it.
  11. Drink up to a shot of apple cider vinegar before eating, it’s supposed to minimize fat absorption. Also speeds metabolism and can help curb cravings. Drinking more than a shot causes a vague nausea which helps suppress appetite.
  12. Ice or gum are good food substitutes. Celery works too if you’re really hungry.
  13. Use small, dark colored plates. Dark blue or black makes you eat less, and smaller plates and utensils cause you to take smaller portions from the start.
  14. Make a list of “bad” foods. Periodically, cross one of the list and pledge to never, ever eat it again. Eventually there will be none left.
  15. Eat in front of a mirror, naked or in underwear if possible. If you can’t, carry a picture of yourself in a revealing outfit and look at it when you want to eat. When you have cravings pinch your fat and look at your problem areas, don’t add to them!
  16. Eat a lot of fiber for digestive health and low calories.
  17. Create a methodical routine for eating. Cut food into tiny pieces, count your bites and the number of times you chew, set your utensils down between bites, and sip water between bites. Add other rules or rituals of your own.
  18. Eat higher-calorie items earlier in the day so you have more time to burn them off; if you eat late eat light or it will be more likely to be stored as fat due to inactivity. Try not to eat too late, sleep burns calories and is a good opportunity to burn fat with little effort. The body must burn through all digesting food before taking energy from stored food (fat).
  19. When you go out, take very little money or only enough to buy whatever non-food item you plan on buying. This will make it harder to buy food on impulse.
  20. Don’t take bites, either from others’ food or while cooking, as the calories add up surprisingly fast and you may not realize how much extra you’re taking in.
  21. Write down everything you eat and its calories. This will make you think before eating and also make you more aware of how much food and calories you are actually consuming. You can also write down other things such as how you’re feeling, who you’re with, place, time, and why you chose to eat it, this will help you track patterns in your eating behavior.
  22. Wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it when you want to eat. Food = pain.
  23. Set a time you cannot eat past. 6:00 or 7:00pm are good choices. This is especially helpful if you are prone to night binging. Then make a rule that you cannot eat before 6:00 or 7:00AM, this is like having a 12-hr fast every day.
  24. You shouldn’t eat for at least 3 hours before going to bed. The extra hours will help burn off the calories. If you eat soon before sleeping, you absorb more calories due to inactivity and you put on weight.
  25. Have a peppermint or peppermint tea. Peppermint decreases hunger.
  26. Brush your teeth when you want to eat. The clean feeling and mint aftertaste will put you off food.
  27. Press on your stomach when it grumbles. TUMS also stop stomach growling and have calcium.(5 calories a piece so be careful!)
  28. Carry a list of all the reasons you want to be thin and avoid food. Look at it when you want to eat to remind yourself why you won’t. Or, write a new list every time you want to eat. It’ll distract you, postpone eating, and thinking of the reasons will inspire you.
  29. Cut a ribbon the size you want your waist to be. wrap and tie it around your wrist like a bracelet. Every time you look at it you’ll be reminded of your goals. When you’re tempted, take it off and wrap it around your waist. See how close you are, or how far you have to go, and resist the temptation.
  30. Always leave at least one bite of food on your plate. This will help you to be able to stop eating and prevent binges. It will also stop you from compulsively finishing portions even when you have eaten enough.
  31. Save $1 for every meal you don’t eat, then use the money to buy yourself a non-food present.
  32. Friends will only get in the way. Avoid them until you reach your goals.
  33. Never eat in secret. This is a terrible habit that leads to compulsive binging. If you wouldn’t eat it in front of all your friends you shouldn’t be eating it at all! Also if you only eat around other people they will know that you do eat and assume you eat alone as well, thus lessening suspicion that you have an ED.
  34. Never eat out of a box or jar. Always eat from a plate or bowl. This will help you in several ways: You will see how much you are really eating; you can determine in advance how much you will eat and not go back for seconds; using a small plate or bowl will make you eat even less; you can count/measure out an exact serving and know the accurate amount of calories you are consuming.
  35. Give clothes to Goodwill as they get too big for you. Don’t keep them around “just in case.”
  36. If you live alone, put thinspo and/or reverse thinspo pictures on the pantry and refrigerator. A mirror works well too.
  37. When you have hunger pangs, picture your stomach eating away your fat, and that what you feel is the feeling of thinness and your fat burning away.
  38. Coffee is an appetite suppressant. Drink it black or with Splenda or other no-calorie sweetener.
  39. Count your bites, and the number of times you chew them. Plan in advance how many bites you can have. Then make them smaller or use smaller utensils.
  40. Paint your nails so you can’t eat until the polish dries. Teeth whitening strips are good too.
  41. Drink water before eating. If you’re still hungry, drink green tea or broth. If you still need to eat, you’ll eat less than you would have.
  42. Eat low-calorie foods with strong flavors. Sometimes you’re craving taste, not food. For bouillon, use less water than is recommended. Peppermints, pickles, peppers, and mustard are good choices.
  43. Do not eat anything unless you know the exact amount of calories in it.
  44. Chew gum while cooking. That way you can’t take bites while it is cooking, and you won’t want to eat it once it’s done.
  45. Keep food out of sight, not sitting out, and stay away from food and the kitchen to keep your mind off it.
  46. Keep a pocket thinspo in your wallet with your cash so you won’t spend money on food.
  47. For sweet cravings, lick a chopstick and dip it into a diet Swiss Miss pack.
  48. Write your current weight on one hand, and your goal weight on the other. When you go to eat, you’ll be reminded how fat you are, and how skinny you could be.
  49. The Four D’s:
    Distance yourself from food.
    Distract yourself.
    Delay eating
    Decide what your goals really are.
  50. Green tea raises metabolism and is very good for the skin and overall health. Drink it in the morning to increase metabolism for the day. Add lemon to make it more effective and to add a detoxifying aspect.
  51. Hot water with lemon is another good morning drink.
  52. Spicy foods raise metabolism, if you don’t like them you can take cayenne pepper capsules available in supplement section of drugstores or health food stores.
  53. Drinking apple cider vinegar is said to raise metabolism, have a few tablespoons, can also be mixed in water (with lemon would be best) or used as salad dressing.
  54. Start the morning with stretching to wake up your muscles, the morning is also the best time to exercise because your body will use stored food (fat) as fuel instead of food you ate. It also processes food better throughout the day and gives you more energy if you exercise in the morning.
  55. Get at least 6 hours of sleep each night, less than this can decrease metabolism by 10% and increase appetite by 15%. You look better and feel better when you have more sleep also if you’re sleeping then you’re not eating!
  56. Keep good posture, it burns 10% more calories throughout the day. You also look better.
  57. Vitamin B6 and B12 raise metabolism and give you energy.
  58. Eating protein increases your metabolic rate by 14%.

Fact and Tip

Fact: You can only purge up to 80% of calories consumed. Tip: Avoid high caloric binges, instead eat things with a greater mass and less calories. Fruits and veggies are always a good choice. Fact: Carbohydrate digestion starts in your mouth. Our salivary glands secrete amylase, which is a digestive enzyme that begins the break down of carbs. Tip:Avoid eating carbohydrates at the beginning of the meal, because you’ll absorb more calories. Save the carbs for desert. Fact: Fat is digested in the small intestines and therefore you feel fuller after eating a high-fat meal. Tip: Eat the fat first because it takes a long time to digest, therefore you’ll absorb less calories than eating carbs first. Beware, fat has twice as many kcals as carbs and proteins. Fact: Laxatives do not affect calorie absorbtion. Most food and calories are digested and absorbed in the small intestines and laxatives only affect the large intestines. Yes, you’ll lose weight, but the weight lost is from water and fecal matter. Tip: Only use laxatives after a large meal that you did not purge afterwards, this way you’ll see the real amount of weight gained instead of the fecal matter gained.

Eating Less

  1. Load yourself with water. Keep your stomach totally full of water at all times! There is less room for food… obviously!
  2. Become a vegetarian! Meat is fat and disgusting!
  3. Fat free chocolate milk is good for sweet cravings.
  4. Set yourself some rules! If you’re a true Ana, you won’t have any problem following them. Ana girls are strong!!
  5. Diet pills, they may be dangerous, but you’re not dieting to be healthy. Being thin is more important than anything!
  6. When you get the urge to snack, clean something, and use lots of chemicals. The smell will curb your appetite
  7. Chew sugar-free gum. It will make you more hungry at first, but later you’ll get nausea.
  8. Don’t ever eat out!
  9. Don’t eat anything you don’t know the nutritional values of!
  10. Tea helps to calm a hungry belly. It soothes and fills you up.
  11. Chew your food untill it dissolves
  12. Drink sparkling water or Crystal Clear, it fills you up more!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

3 Head Rules

7-7 rule Dinner must be eaten by 7.00 pm. After dinner no food is consumed until 7.00 am at the earliest. This is basically the same as a 12-hour fast, meaning, if you live by this rule for a year, you have fasted a half year! Mainly one should do this because your metabolism slows down at night, and if you consume food it will be harder to burn the calories. 3 hour eat/sleep 3 hours must pass between the last time you and and the time you go to bed. This ensures that you are actively burning calories while the food is initially digesting, versus, when you are sleeping, when metabolism slows and you burn fewer calories. Very important because you want to burn as many as you can! 2 times a dayYou must weigh yourself twice a day. Once at night before you go to sleep, and once after using the bathroom in the morning. This is more a self-esteem booster then anything else. You are always thinner in the morning.

4 Week Plan (To start off with Ana)

Here’s a diet plan for those who are still eating way to much! It’s a 4week plan to decrease your calorie intake and increase your exercise until you’ve reached Ana’s standards.

These are just steps you can follow. No one has to do this strictly this way. I’ve adjusted the plan also. I don’t want anyone to go cut themselves, vomit or take laxatives. You’re better off without those three.

Step 1: (One week)
* Decreae calorie intake to 1000 cals a day
* Read nutritioning labels
* 100 crunches a day
* 2 hours running a week

Step 2: (One week)
* Decrease calorie intake to 500 cals a day
* If eaten more, exercise more.
* 200 crunches a day
* 30 minutes swimming/cycling/skating/dancing a day
* Take weight loss pills

Step 3: (One week)
* 500 calories a day
* 250 crunches a day
* 2 hours running a week
* Take weight loss pills
* 1 hour swimming?cycling/skating/dancing a day

Step 4: (Forever)
* 500 calories a day
* Create control. Reward yourself for every victory.
* 300 crunches a day
* 2 hours skating/swimming/dancing/cycling a week
* Take weight loss pills

———————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Distractions

* Go on a walk
* Search for health/nutrition info on the net
* Turn up the music and dance
* Clean your house until everything looks untouched
* Read a book or magazine
* Find out about finances and investing
* Find out enough about a national issue to form a strong opinion
* Do that that you were meaning to do for so long
* Rent and follow a yoga or pilates video
* Express yourself creatively
* Wander and browse trough the library
* Read about the toxins and food that build up in the digestive system
* Start writing in a journal about things besides calories
* Make your own, original, unique website
* Have a movie fest
* Volunteer somewhere
* Get a job
* Master your self description
* Play with your pet, they’ll love you!
* Call your grandparents
* Go to howstuffworks.com and find out!
* Exfoliate your entire body
* Think about your life goals and how you’ll reach them

    • Why?
      Even if you do starve yourself down to looking like you live in a famine stricken country, what happens then?
      How does that help you out in life? There you are, sick and weak and befuddled in the head, too weak to do anything, too malnourished to learn or retain anything mentally, People look at you with pity because in your bony emaciated state you’ve become ugly – hollow cheeks and dark sunken eyes, thin listless hair and bloodless lips, hunching over a sunken chest like a 90 year old woman with your boobs empty and your butt gone and skin sagging. Dull eyes, short brittle broken fingernails, mottled unhealthy skin and leached bones that break so easily.
      What does doing that to yourself get you in the end? Dead, like L, the girl that wrote all these crazy rules and tips on here?
      Anas are like a car wreck. Horrible to look at and a lot of times people die.

      • we do this because ana says so if we dont do it nobody will want us we don’t always starve our self we do it until we feel good about are bodies it’s the way are minds have been set we want thigh gaps we wand to see are hip bones we want WE WANT it and we will get it

        • Because ana said so? Why the fuck do you care what ana says?
          If you don’t do it nobody will want you? More like nobody’s gonna want you after you’re an ana.
          So somebody said you should have thigh gap and you BELIEVED THAT SHIT?
          You’re a fucking moron. Hope it’s not my tax dollars being spent to rake care of your stupid sick no personality ass.

      • Omg I agree! I just watched a documentary about this website and website like this and it involved 3 girls from different perspectives and it’s so terrifying! I’m appalled that this exists! Don’t you girls know you are literally killing yourselves?!?!

      • Ok, 7 year olds weigh 60 lbs. An adult skeleton weighs about 40 lbs.
        Does that help you form an opinion?
        She’s gonna fuckin die if she reaches that goal, she’ll have burned up her body from the inside.

        • im not saying youre wrong some body type weighs less and yes she will look really terrible if she reaches 60lbs i think shes perfect the way she is being 110lbs, the lightest i would go down to if i were 110lbs is 95lbs but no lower

        • Saying shit to her is not going to help her more. Be kind, not an asshole. Do you know what she’s going trough? NO, you fucking don’t. Saying shit like that to anyone with this kind of problems is the worst. You can’t just say “wtf is wrong with you, people?” cause you have no idea of how painful it is. So shut the fuck up.

          • Actually I have every idea and I know toughlove is the only answer; all your fucking “understanding” and “support” is just enabling in disguise.
            I SURVIVED. I KNOW THE TRUTH.
            You don’t have to waste years of your life and end up with a bad heart before you learn.

            • Here’s the thing, this girl isn’t making a choice to act this way. She has a mental disorder. An eating disorder. She is ill, not stupid. I am a survivor of anorexia and now a researcher at an eating disorder lab. When I was still suffering from anorexia, all of the things you have said would only push me to try harder to be skinny. During that time, in my mind, you would be the stupid one, and I would be the one who is in on what true happiness is. Her logic is not the same as yours. You’re saying these things like they’re obvious but to a person with a mental disorder, they are not. You are not a psychological professional. You have no right to tell a person with an ED what to do, or put her down. Would you tell someone with cancer to just stop growing tumors, or someone with a disability to just get up and walk? No. Right now, this is where she is in the course of her anorexia. Her thought patterns are unhealthy, but if you are not equipped to treat her, and you want to talk to her on the internet, then support her, don’t berate her. Tell her that she is beautiful and that she is good enough and that you hope someday she can recover and feel happy while eating and see her healthy weight and energy as beautiful. That’s what I hope for Kadence. I see a future for her where life is about so much more than her body, and that she loves it for what it can do, not how it looks. I hope that she will seek treatment soon and get better. You can do it Kadence. You are loved and you are deserve to live happily and healthily. ❤

    • WTF is wrong with you. It is really, as you already know very unhealthy and bad for you. Do you want to DIE?!?!?!? This website is ridiculous and should be BANNED. You are beautiful the way you are and NOBODY should make you feel inferior not even yourself.

    • Someone please email me at lilred69.ac@gmail.com. I’m looking for an ana buddy that will help me with my goal weight. Someone who knows what to do and how to do it. Please and thank you in advance. My name is Amanda! I’m looking forward to any emails.

  1. so hey guys im looking for a pro ana buddy, im in the process of not eating but it’ll be nice to talk to someone about it and understands and going through the same, im not looking for recovery, just looking forward for my goal so if you’re up to it and wanna come along email me at alyssagonz667@gmail.com

  2. This is so scary to me and It’s so sad that so many innocent boys and girls lives are wasted on this condition. Please get help if you have an eating disorder, there ARE people who care for you, please don’t listen to sites like this that spread this condition. This isn’t an easy trick to get skinny, this is causing hundreds of people just like you to die.

  4. HELP ME!!!!! I’m 17 and I was dignosed with anorexia 2 years ago. I have been to hospital 3 times and I am weight restored. I don’t know what to do I’m being threatened to go back into hospital but I know it’s just to scare me. Mum is freaking out now and she’s making me eat so much fkn food and I can’t deal. I went to Bali and lost weight and now I’ve put it back on and all I want next week is to see a loss but I know that that is impossible with the situation I’m in. I’m only allowed to do 2 hour long workouts a week and I eat a shit ton like almost 2500 calories sorry if that disgusts you. I feel like my like is being taking from me and all I want to do is loose weight I honestly don’t even care about anyone else anymore I just need to loose weight and every time I see an gain will make me more and more crazy. I know you probably don’t have any advice but it feels good to get it off my chest. I’m at a loss I HATE MY LIFE and I can’t do anything to fix it. I just want to loose weight but there is honestly nothing I can do! I can’t even purdge because my body just won’t do it for some reason I’ve tried for hours and after then it’s pointless any way

    • Crazy stupid bitch get the fuck out of here unless you really do want to die!!
      Your mom loves you and is looking out for you and – listen up you stupid little shallow sack of bones – doctors do not lie to their patients. Do what they tell you, work with your counselors to learn positive self talk and healthy habits and you can still have a good life.
      But you have to make up your mind to quit whining and do the work, and you sound more like a rich bitch drama queen.

      • YOU HAVE NO HEART OR FUCKING SOUL, IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE SO SHITTY, GET THE FUCK OUT, If you don’t like this, GO THE FUCK AWAY. FUCK YOU, YOU ARE THE CRAZY BITCH HERE.

        • It’s sad that you don’t get proper help. My 14 year old daughter is in this messnow and today ee’re taking her to the hospital . I really hope they van help us get in to her head!
          She hasn’t even got her periods yetnd that’s cruicial to build a strong bonestructire. I know u know this, but upur brain is somewhere else.

        • Strip away all the bullshit and I have more heart and soul that you. I’m here every day to fight for their lives and shine the light of truth. I am more dedicated to crushing the evil of anorexia and the pro ana diet that copycats that horrible mental illness than you could ever know. I am never going to go away, I will keep telling you how low and shallow and stupid you are to do ana and how she wastes your potential and rapes your body and leaves you for scrap. Ana doesn’t care about any of you. Never did and never will because your fucking ana is just an evil idea. One we need to kill, not share.
          No, ana doesn’t care about you, but I do. Call me the ultimate meanspo pushing you in the right direction.

      • You bitchy hoe have you heard of being sympathetic she wants help not someone calling them a rich bitch drama queen or crazy stupid bitch

        • Why don’t you pray some more, Bob? I’m sure that imaginary man in the sky will fix everything for you.
          Maybe he sent me. How the fuck do you know? Think you know God’s ultimate plan?
          How do you want to look at it? I’m not a child needing imaginary guardians; I am my own higher power and I’m ok with this life being all there ever is. I deal in reality only.

    • I know its hard. Ive been there im on this site to help people. I thought everyone was out to get me too. But i found out that wasnt the case at all. No one is out to get you. Your mom loves you and cant bare to see anything happen to you.thats why shes doing whats she is doing to help you .i know it doesnt seem like that now but you will see. Trust your mom and the doctors know what they are doing. They are doing it to give you your life back although it dont seem that way. I almost died from anorexia. Its a scary thing . All anorexia does is make you miserable . You can beat ana . With ana you are not you. You are not in control ana is . Dont you want to be you again. I know it seems like they are going to make you fat they are not thats not their intentions. They want to have you back and happy and alive. You can fight it . The scale doesnt define you as a person its just a item. Numbers dont define you. Stay strong!

  5. Hey, I’m struggling. I eat around 300-500 calories a day and I do about 20 minutes of cardio and then about 30 minutes of ab workouts and butt workouts. I’m 8 stone 7 lbs and I am 5ft 2 inch tall and I was 16 stone a year ago. However, I can’t seem to get rid of the rest of the weight, I think it’s because I’m gaining muscle from the ab and butt workouts, but I don’t want to lose my butt gains. I’m all over the place, can someone help me. My goal weight is 6 stone. I need to be 6 stone. HELP A GIRL OUT

    • First of all, the reason why you won’t lose anymore weight is because muscle weighs more than fat which is a good thing, it means you’ve lost fat and are fit, however, your body needs protein with the amount of exercise you’re doing. You’re body can use this protein as good fuel while you work out. With your height being 8 stone 7lbs is a good weight, if you drop down to 6 stone you will lose your actual muscle mass and have no energy. Please don’t starve yourself, your body needs more fuel, and it actually increases your metabolism. Chicken is one of the best sources of protein. I have done so much research on nutrition and have even spoken with a naturopathic doctor about this. Trust me, if you actually eat and work out you will look healthy and you will be happy and feel energetic. You don’t need to starve yourself. You are beautiful and enough and you don’t have to change for anyone.

  6. i have been sick this week so my mother tells me i’m not allowed to work out. i did sneak out yesterday but today my mom is working at home. how do i convince her that i’m okay or how can i sneak out without her knowing.

  7. I go by “A” just because my parents caught me on this sight, and I got in trouble for it. Anyways, I really need a strict Ana buddy. I haven’t been sticking to it, and it’s been Two weeks.

  8. Hey! I’m looking for an Ana Coach. I’m 5’3 and 149 pounds. Please be EXPERIENCED. Trolls who only wants pics will be kicked. my kik is cinderluxx

  9. Think!!!
    Seriously, if you are lonely and depressed, you can find better ways to make friends (and better friends) somewhere healthy. Having a mental illness is awful, imitating the behaviors of a mental illness as a diet plan is just plain foolish (because it doesn’t work, the weight always comes back and the damage to the body is significant). This whole starve yourself club is for failures only. Do you see anyone coming back and telling how they got everything they wanted in life from ana? Or just sadness and futile struggle?
    Control and real strength are in doing what you know is right for yourself. Doing what you know is right makes you feel better, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Ana only leads to constant anxiety and repeated failures – or worse, success and death. For 20% of the real ones, which is why we shouldn’t encourage them.
    So please, please, take a better path. No matter how you lose weight you can find support and not have to hide it if you choose a healthy way. You don’t have to be a sneak, or a liar, or hide. I know some of the wierd girls here get off on that kind of drama, or making everyone worry or fuss over tham – but if you’re not a drama queen or an attention seeker, but just a heavy person who wants to get to a healthy weight, then I wanted to warn you about the meanspo fat shaming they do – mean girls in a skinny club – and also watch out for the predators in disguise that hang out here wanting to be someone’s coach or buddy. Never send pics.

  10. Little lavender rabbit, you are a full of shit enabler. She is making a choice, we all do. You do, I do, she does. How you get well is you choose to open what you knew anyway and deal.
    Outward bound anyone?
    Fuck you LLR, you are just a namby pamby know nothing loser without the balls to man up and say what you see. Cry fuckin baby.
    You gotta be tore down before you can be built back up.
    Feeling sorry for somebody never helped anybody if you don’t do anything about it. Just helps them float along in their fucked up cocoon. YOU ARE JUST SO WRONG. PEOPLE LIKE YOU PERPETRATE THE BULLSHIT.

    • It is a choice, as you said. It is their fuckong choice so leave them the hell alone. You were in this position before, you know how it feels. A choice or not, it is their not yours. Quit being such a bitch. Every time you call them “bag of bones” or “bitch enabler” your making them feel thousands worse than they are now! So quit being such an ass hole and leave them alone. This is THEIR life. Not YOURS . Shut the fuck up and leave them be. Your just being plain rude and your help is unwanted here.

      • Wah wah wah, cry me a fucking river & I’ll pick ya up and throw yer bone ass in it.
        It’s a public website, dearie, where you get to say stuff but so do I!
        I don’t expect to save everyone but I sure the hell am not going to let this bullshit website live promoting self harm and abuse to kids without doing my best to fuck up the ana fantasy and reveal the danger and the lies.

      • You are fighting a real crusader. If you go to older posts she’s been here a long time. I don’t think she’s going to give up on us just because you say so. She doesn’t do things just because someone says so.
        She thinks for herself.
        And she fights what she sees as evil in her own way.
        And if you read around the anger and frustration, she’s a smart person with a lot of knowledge anout food and nutrition, the human body’s functioning and requirements, and healthy weightloss and lifestyles.
        She just hates ana because it hurt her, and she doesn’t want it to hurt us.
        It’s not complicated. We break her heart.

        • Seriously? Ok then. No, I try to wise up the stupid copycats and shame the bullies into shutting up- meanspo fat shamers and people who promote thigh gap should be fucking whipped.
          And I say it again, you fucking moron, real anorexics do not seek weight loss buddies. They might search the internet looking for friends, but it’s more like how the food makes you shudder and turn away and how you know how it will only make you feel worse and how hard it is to swallow and how it feels so horrible when you feel the food going down your throat to your stomach and then it’s there and you can feel it and your stomach doesn’t want it and it’s like a rock sitting there . .
          People with ED? Don’t make me laugh!
          No. Almost none of you are the real face of ED; you actually have no fucking clue at all. Most of you just want to lose weight and can’t stick to a diet and exercise plan so come here to desperately starve yourselves for however long you can stand it at a time.
          Which is fucking stupid.

        • You really are a stupid little puta, aren’t you? Nobody’s ever in a hole too deep to be reached if they’re just willing to look up and see the light. Or if someone’s there to give them a push or a pull when they’ve had enough.
          Why don’t you take a break and do some learning and thinking? Maybe you should work on your body – I usually say nobody’s just a piece of meat but you don’t seem to carry much between the ears . .

  11. This is wrong. Anorexia destroys lives, not just your own, but those of everyone you know and love. I watched someone go down to seventy six pounds. She wound up in a coma for three days with permanent heart, liver, kidney, and lung damage. It nearly destroyed our friendship. I couldn’t stand to see her so thin and sick. Her obsessive thoughts and behaviours impacted me and I developed an eating disorder as well. If you can’t fight it for yourself, do it for your loved ones. Your little brother or sister don’t deserve to see you hooked up to tubes, fighting for your life as your brain is starved of sugar and begins to shut off your necessary functions. Your mother doesn’t deserve you see you lose your hair, your teeth, become infertile and cry yourself to sleep because you can’t attain “perfection”. It will never be enough, you will never be thin enough, so please, don’t try this. Don’t agree with this. Stand up for yourself and fight with all your might to save your life and that of others. There is always hope. You can win.

      • You called, lol? What don’t you like about being called an ugly dumbass for doing ana and malnourishing your body?
        Does it make you feel stupid for abusing yourself? Piss you off that I would say that?
        Why wouldn’t I since it’s the truth!
        What made you think you needed to be an ana in the first place? Someone fucking told you to in some way shape or form.
        So now you just have to take shit from the other side; meanspo bitches trying to save you by showing you the horror you’re playing with. Save tomorrow’s children and kill ana in our generation.

    • there are healthy ways to losing weight and getting fit. this website will lead you to many negative outcomes that will kill your health in the future. please if you want tips you should check out websites like livestrong.com that will guide you through a healthy lifestyle and avoid sickness

    • You are only 12, you shouldn’t have to worry about how you look,and please don’t live your life by how he scale works. It’s just a number, it doesn’t define you. You don’t know how every your bones or your organs weigh. Plus you’re going to be starting puberty if you haven’t already, don’t forget that you will start to be getting curves and bigger chest so that you can start to look like a young woman. Please don’t let ana control you, you are beautiful and enough and you shouldn’t have to destroy your life because of these sites. If you go down to 90 or 80 pounds, you will be hospitalized and you will get so many other health problems that will stick with you for the rest of your life. Get off these sites while you still can and live life. Don’t let it be revolved around a number and an ideology of anorexia being beautiful. It’s a lethal disease and you shouldn’t have to go through that. You are beautiful, you are strong, you are enough. And don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

  12. It’s so sad so many assholes go here being their ignorant selves, if you wan’t to know why people are actually doing this you can go get an ED and think about what you’ve said

      • Nothing about ana is right. Eating disorders are a devastating disease. They actually have the highest mortality rate of any other mental illness. What’s right about feeling horrible about your body and hating yourself. Sites like these should be banned. You don’t see website that are pro-depression or pro-substance abuse. I understand that the people on these sites can’t see it any other way, I get that they truly believe that they aren’t beautiful but they are. They need help and they aren’t going to get hat if people keep on giving them new ways and tricks to starve themselves. If you want to lose weight for health reasons do it in a safe way, because not only will that last you for the rest of your life, but it’ll also keep you healthy, energetic, and healthy. Remember, we are all beautiful and strong. We are all enough.

  13. I need a buddy too, Every time I start to get anywhere, I binge and feel so sick with myself. Please someone tell me I’m not the only one. Feeling so weak right now, could really use some support!

  14. Heyy, I’m looking for a strict Ana buddy or coach! Im 13 years old (girl) and you can contact me through snapchat @aneesachanele
    Height-5″4 ft
    CW:118.4 lbs
    GW:100 lbs

  15. I know I am not a psychological professional, nor a health expert, but I just want to say this: I am so sorry that something, likely the cruel words of others, has pushed you to do something like this… I just hope that one day you can heal from this, and never worry about your weight, or food, or anything else ever again… 😦 You deserve to be happy, and not suffer from an ED.

  16. Oh my god. This really has nothing to do with being “stupid” you girls are just insane, it’s insanity. I am so sorry to be blunt and please believe that I am not trying to be cruel or mean. But Mentally…. You are so far gone. I can not believe there are so many girls who truly think that being anorexic is going to make them look good. I seriously hope you poor ladies get help, this is horrible. As a mother of 2 little girls I would be fucking devastated if their minds were twisted up like this. If you want to be skinny that is one thing. But to be under 80lbs……. You are women! Who do you want to look anorexic for? Men?? Let me tell you men do not like anorexic girls. It is ugly. It is HIDEOUS and creepy to look at. They would be utterly repulsed. Be thin! But be within a healthy weight!!! Some of the “most beautiful” women in the world are average size! I feel all my typing is useless. You ladies are seriously damaged and won’t hear what I’m saying. But I had to say something. I just feel so much pity. Please get help. PLEASE!

    • do not go on pro ana web site if you’re not one. We are right. Ana is right. You don’t know what you’re talking about. Live your life as a fat lady and let teens be perfect.

      • Okay, it is one thing to be strong-minded about these pro-ana sites, it is your choice after all, but body shaming someone else is not okay. That is one of the easiest ways to completely shatter someone’s self-esteem. We are all beautiful and you don’t have the right to insult how other people look, and you have’t even see what she looks like. Imagine someone spoke to your mother that way. You’d be pretty angry, so don’t do it to other people.

    • If you want to lose weight I’d suggest going to see a naturopathic doctor, they can give you so much knowledge of how to eat healthy and cleanly, they will give you a healthy and fit lifestyle that you can keep for the rest of your life, they really know what they’re talking about
