Cravings


  • The quicker you can distract yourself from a craving the faster you will forget about it. If you are not binge-disordered even thinking about other foods can relieve a craving (ex. if you are craving spicy think about sweet foods and the spicy craving will pass.)
  • Cravings return. If you have one cookie how long until you want a second? Realize that cravings are fleeting feelings, and indulging one is even more fleeting. If you ate that cookie what is different? Nothing you crave it again 5 minutes later. If you don't eat it what is different? You feel strong, powerful, beautiful, thin. Which is more appealing now?
  • Realize that feelings are not directives. If you see a cute guy/girl do you run up and kiss them? Eating because the whim of eating entered your head is just as illogical. Experience the feeling as an observer and wait for it to pass, you will feel more powerful and in control than you ever imagined!
  • Facial expressions are thought of as responses to emotions but they can trigger emotions as well. Smile when you're hungry, and make a disgusted face at foods you would indulge in. The emotions will follow try it you'll be surprised.
  • Cravings diminish over time. Food can be addictive like nicotine. Think about it: the longer a smoker goes without a cigarette, the more likely they are to give them up entirely. Avoid the foods you crave most for as long as you can and eventually you will forget about them. If it's scary to think about never eating your favorite food again, tell yourself, if you go a whole month without it you can have it on the 31st day. By then you won't want it.

  1. it's disgusting how your are promoting the eating disorder. you really should stop, girls as young as 9 or 10 could be on here, children have access to the internet and are easily influenced, imagine if your younger sister saw this?? you're basically promoting death! it's so so so wrong.

    4. Please don't turn to anorexia. You can become thinner by exercising, and eating healthy. Don't starve yourself. If you have anorexia, tell someone and get help. You can do SO MUCH MORE. Being thin isn't the most important thing in the world. Just tell someone you trust will get help. Just please don't think that being anorexic is the only way to live life, because it's not. You are all beautiful and you don't need this.

    5. You obviously love yourself more than others on here. I'm very unhappy with myself and can't stop. I'm turning to this to love my body and be more confident. Being fat and having social anxiety don't go well together, and once I reach a point where I am happy with myself I'll stop

    8. The persons who tell us not to do what we do are the same people who say things like" Oh, you look like you put on a little weight" or "why are you eating again when you ate a couple minutes ago" when in all actuality you were fasting for the whole day, when they know you are trying to cut down yet they still point out every one of our faults. So please, dont tell someone else what to do or how to deal with their life cause we dont tell you how to live yours.
      Thank You

    9. Don't tell them to shut up. Parents can't look over every child's head 24/7. Parents should be able to trust their children and some children will abuse that trust.

    13. I'm not here to tell anyone how to live their life, I just want to say please get off of this site. This isn't to bash the owner of the site either, I'm just trying to say that losing weight doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to hate food to lose weight. Take it from someone who has been affected by an eating disorder, it isn't good. I understand you don't have control and it's a mental disease, but promoting other girls to have this same disorder isn't going to help you get better. Furthermore, you don't have to be thin to be attractive, and that is a complete fact. I know you've all heard this before but everyone is perfect in their own way and I truly mean that. That being said, if you want to lose weight there is nothing wrong with that, but there are better ways of doing it than this.

    14. To be fair, they do have a point about young kids seeing this; but I (personally) am glad this is on here, cause it helps me achieve what I want. And young kids shouldn't be searching 'pro ana' on the internet, so in reality as thats basically the only way of finding this page your argument is invalid because the parents of a young child (ages 6-10 as they know how to use the internet) should be watching what their child is looking up and not letting their child learn about 'pro ana'

      Delete
    15. There are much, much worse things on the internet than this. If you don't like it, don't look. It isn't promoting anyone to have an eating disorder but rather complimenting the ones that aleady do, aren't looking to "get better" by society standards and just want to share information with one another without being judged saying that we need help. Let us live how we want to.

I think she cares,is worried,& only meant to help.She said she had an eating disorder herself,who knows what she's been thru,too,just like you,like all of us.Let's not shut each other up,but listen to each other,with the freedom to speak w/out fear,judgement or worrying about what others think.We will all have to make out own decisions,& can,but sometimes,someone w/more experience might help us make a decision that is better for us than the one we made for ourselves.This is help,& love,we can all have that for ourselves & each other.XOXXXXOOOO!!!!

  10. Despite what this site is telling you and society is telling you being malnourished will cause irreparable damage to your body you will later regret IF you don't die first. Being slim and HEALTHY should be your goal. There are better ways than starving yourself. If you are young and reading this site, please please please don't do this. You are not going to impress anyone worth your time once you become anorexic. Obesity kills, true, but so does the extreme opposite. Do the research for yourself.

    1. Hot chocolate made up of cocoa powder (1 or 2 teaspoons) and boiling water is quite helpful for sugar cravings. Could also add a teaspoon of sugar. I've found it helps to prevent binging as it takes time to consume, being a hot drink.

      Delete
    2. For the record, I am not condoning starving yourself; it is possible to lose weight without dangerously lowering your calories and the recommended minimum is 1200 per day, which does work, especially if you exercise as well. I can confirm this. The reason I commented was because it is healthier to have a drink with fewer calories so that you don't binge and feel guilty, and because then you are (hopefully) able to eat a meal rather than lots of sugary food.

  27. Look, most of us aren't doing this to promote anorexia. Because seriously, it is pure hell. Yes there are proud moments but we don't come here to rub it in your face or promote it. This website is our safe haven, just like I'm sure you have your own. We don't go to pther peoples pages that say they like fat or chubby overweight girls and say they are promoting obesity. Because they aren't, they are just stating what they prefer to look like and so are we. Go hate somewhere else because obviously your hate comments aren't going to make a difference in our mindset. Anorexia is not just about not eating. I don't think you realize that. For me personally, there is a voice in my head that demands I go check the mirror for improvement or getting bigger. There's a voice in my head saying that I shouldn't eat a type of food because the fat content and the calories will make me gain. It's an actual fear to gain weight. You think we choose to be afraid of a number on a scale? To be afraid of that number is life and death to us. We can't just get better, okay? So just go away and leave us alone.

  35. Thank you for the help. It is very hard sometimes to deal with cravings. I found that all the foods I crave I can substitute for something with less calories. For example when I crave chocolate, I drink black coffee instead, when I crave cookies, I eat a slice of fruit with a teaspoon of oatbran, when it is chips, I eat a little bit of salt with spice on edge of the teaspoon.

    I also learned that having small meals every 3 hours helps avoid cravings. I eat about 50-100 grams of food every 3 hours always at the same time, 4 meals until, last one at 5pm (usually it is fat free chicken breast or a fruit or a vegetable) This keeps me within my daily calorie budget (it is 1000 per day), and my parents and friends see that I am eating often, and healthy foods, so they don't worry, and do not notice anything.

  36. I've dealt with body image and eating issues for years, probably since sophomore year in high school and I'm a guy. I realized that I was better when I
    was thin and in shape. I'll most likely be this way the rest of my life. My whole life revolves around this problem and it's affected my relationships, my school, my job, everything. I'm in a relationship with this disorder, nothing else matters. Its truly a mental problem that has to do with chemicals in your brain.. its a real disease. Im pro ED all the way, but please just be careful you don't know what you're getting into until it consumes your whole world...

  45. I'm very sad looking at these posts, one young lady as young as 12, the author of the site being just 16.....and I'm sure many more here are very young. I'm 34 years old, a mother of an 11 year old son. I've been battling anorexia and bulimia for 20 years. I know exactly how you all feel, but when I began at age 14 from self hate there were no pro ana/pro mia sites. I wish I were not inflicted with this; this really is a psychological illness, just like schizophrenia (which inflicts my father). You cannot become this way by will, it has to do with brain chemicals/imbalances, genetics, and other factors such as environmental, social, many from abuse/dysfunction. Yes, you can starve to lose weight, but it will not last......eventually your body will become so weak without muscle and your metabolism will be extremely slow and you will literally be killing yourself to stay thin. Your skin, hair, nails will become dry, brittle; your hair will fall out in clumps; you will become hollow, sunken in. Believe me, the depts of this is not pretty at all. I'm lucky to be alive, and I've been trying to get out of bulimia for years for my child; I want so badly to live a normal, healthy life. I'm currently in therapy, been for years, just started on antidepressants. I've been hospitalized for extremely low potassium, sodium, and calcium,malnutrition, anemia, low blood count, heart palpitations. The emergency room doctor told me my heart could just stop working at any time because it is weakened. I've had to work with psychiatrists, therapists, doctors, cardiologists, nutritionists. I'm guilty for making my family and friends worry so much about me. Yes, I came on here because again I'm trying to stop bingeing and regain all control. I'm still trying to lose weight again because I used to be 98 Ibs; I'm 115 now (5'6"). But I know that if I get there again I could die. I came here looking for good tips and thinspiration, but I am so saddened by all the young ladies here. I know how you feel. Please get help while you can, while it's still early, while you're still healthy. I really wish I did, because it is hell now. I'm not trying to preach to you, this is truly from my heart....

  47. I have to be thin, I saw the ability to lose weight within a few months because I have lost weight not intentionally but I think it's because I was too stressed at that time...as soon as I realised I lost weight I wanted to stay like that, a few months after I went back to vasity I gained weight and I ate a lot!!!! now I gained even more weight because I stopped exercising, this site is really inspiring me not to be anorexic but to be careful on the calorie intake...I want to lose weight so bad, I hate it when I am wearing something nice and it doesn't look nice on me...I take pictures with friends who are the exact size as me, and I still look fatter than them. I hate taking pictures now because they depress me...I am looking forward to losing weight and keeping this site as my motivation...got a problem with this site? Why did you even visit it? People who are against this site shouldn't visit it because they want to make people feel less of themselves... I for one like this site and being anorexic is a choice if you don't want to be, you won't be...I am only looking for tips to be healthy that's it!!!

OH, and if you want to be an actor or model, you CAN'T BE FAT! people's first impression of you is how you look, so if you're fat they will think you eat in ALL your spare time and are probably all greasy. GO AWAY! why are you even on here? IF your on here, y ou must WANT to be ano anorexic. If you don't LEAVE
