Re: On Global BC TV Vancouver BC this morning

... if your kids come home from school and say they want to be vegan then it's a red light sign that they may be developing an eating disorder like anorexia. OMG Talk about fear mongering!

Re: Just an observation

The only time I believe a family member should intervene regarding someone's weight is in the event of anorexia nervosa/bulimia, or morbid obesity (where someone's mobility has been compromised). These are both extreme cases and life threatening. I never comment on someone's ...

In Recovery (eating disorder)

I will keep this brief and to the point. I as a teen had anorexia and then later on as an adult had full blown binge eating disorder. I am now one year in recovery from binge eating and no longer binge but the weight didn't magically come off ( I didn't ...

... range, albeit on the lower end. Just to let you know, when I got married many moons ago - I weighed a mere 118 lbs! :eek: People always assumed anorexia, but I can assure you that has never been the case. And in my mid-twenties, I weighed 165 lbs (also considered a normal BMI for my height) ...

well thanks to just about everyone - specially Dr M

... a red flag as I had bulimia in my youth. A few days later I gently asked after her daughter and she replied that her daughter who was vegan had anorexia. The daughter was away at boarding school and it all sounded horrendous. I didn't like to pry too much. Later conversation revealed that she ...

Re: vegan youtube drama

I genuinely feel sorry for her. Recovering from anorexia. Trying to gain weight. Messed up digestive system for high fat vegan foods. At least she says she can still eat starches.

BAD NEWS FROM THE DOCTOR....

Re: Changing perspectives of weight.

Based on BMI alone, no good medical practitioner would prescribe methadone, or hospitalize someone for force-feeding. So, BMI ...

Re: What Ultrarunners Want

Re: 'The fat you eat is NOT the fat you wear'- response?

This nutritionist seems to coach people who've had anorexia. So he's probably all about helping people with eating disorders get over their fear of fat and putting on weight. Maybe that's why he's so pro 'good fats'. He also advocates eating a lot ...

Re: Clean Eating's Dirty Secrets on BBC

Re: Clean Eating's Dirty Secrets on BBC

It is true that people who have a tendency to anorexia and orthorexia are drawn to all sorts of diets including healthy eating diets so the bbc program is ok in warning people about this. I also agree that it is difficult to give up the addiction ...
