I am more excited to end obesity to be honest, but hey anorexia and undereating seems to be a huge issue too...anyway i think that a vegan diet is the solution to almost ALL problems in the world and Freelee and Durianrider have already saved my life and many other lives too...I really hope that together we all as vegan pioneers can turn the world into a vegan paradise I mean how cool would that be? As Leo Tolstoy said: As long as there are Slaughterhouses there will be Battlefields...<3
I think that obesity and anorexia are part of the same problem, though, girls growing up with little or no self esteem, along with mass media telling them what they should look like, and how important that is.
But I'm not sure I understand your post connecting the proana site and Freelee, can you elaborate a bit?
I see what you're saying - it IS exciting to think that these girls are getting referred to a program that is healthy and good for them.
I actually found out about Freelee on a ProAna site! They were making fun of the lifestyle, and so I looked it up! It made total sense! I chose to recover and go 80/10/10, I've never made a better decision.
Great! Point in case, or is that case in point, something like that! :D
Persistence is a skill anorexics and near anorexics DO possess, in excess! So they really just need to believe. In treatment clinics, their prescribed diets are designed for weight gain, with no promise of eventual weightloss from continueing them. Big barrier. Big cause for relapse. A life getting fatter and fatter is their biggest fear, right? basically the whole problem. A lifestyle that will cause them initial weight gain but overall health and a promise of their body eventually settling down to a thin healthy, attractive physique like freelee's, sounds like a cure to me! And they do view freelee as thin and attractive and what they want to look like, for the most part.
@#$% calorie restricting... if i knew better before i restricted i wouldn't have to go through this emotional/physical and psychological bullshit that raw foods now have to heal... aside from all those bodily problems people set themselves up for a FAILURE at being ANYTHING MEANINGFUL in their life and DOING SOMETHING.....
It's great the MESSAGE IS out there, doesn't matter PRO ANA or wherever. The world needs to get this message... and i believe that once the person is ready (obese or starved) they will step on the right path.... all we can do is just to continue spreading the word and carbing up :)
that is where I first heard about freelee. myproana.com I think. They are big on mono meals because if you eat the same thing every day it doesn't make you gain somehow ?? Not sure on that but it is definitely what sparked my interest and helped me heal before I got too bad
I tried to lead my anorexic cousin to this lifestyle by pointing her to Freelee's videos (I sent her a link to the "51 bananas in a day" video) but she said she just couldn't watch it, it was hurting her :-\
