    Do you think it is as much of a problem as obesity?

    No need to pick a 'winner.' All of them are problems worth addressing.

    Are you waiting 15 posts to sell something in a link, or is this a serious question?

    Many girls have died from anorexia.

    I had a roommate in college with bulimia that was so bad her hair and teeth were falling out from her throwing up all the time. Her parents finally put her in a "place" where she could get the help she needed.

    Serious question. I would never take advantage of such a serious subject.

    At least the overweight girl in the second pic is exercising!

    The first gal looks like she just came from a death camp....unreal how the fashion world perpetrates the myth of "skinny" to look fashionable. At least some companies are coming to their senses-I think "DOVE" started with their ads of 'average and plus sized" women in their campaigns.


    For most of us, eating right and exercising is all we need to stay fit and in shape.

    But for some, they need more help when they are the extremely skinny or overweight.

    God, I could probably write a paper on the subject. But I'll give you a the nutshell version.

    I think it's just as big of a problem, maybe bigger because the subject can be seen as taboo. Everywhere, it seems people are talking about obesity being a huge problem (no pun intended), and ways to help people, but I rarely hear about anorexia/bulimia. The only time I really hear about girls being too skinny is when it's related to models, and then it's just "these models were banned from runway because they don't weigh enough." Nothing about why behind it.

    There are also many misconceived notions about anorexia/bulimia. For one, it isn't just developed because of "the media" and "society". Many people with the disease have other problems in their life, like severe depression, and suicidal tendencies. The getting skinny isn't the reason, but a symptom.

    Enough ramble, but yeah.

    I think people have always made their choices to overdo. I know I have. :) History shows that there were many diverse physical ailments that came from overeating and many of the rich had those ailments and that these issues crossed over cultural and religious lines.

    I think there will always be some who chose to follow and die of anorexia/bulimia and some from overeating. It's a choice. Just as if this were a poll. It's good to live where one is able to make those choice, but I don't think it's the governments fault for my choices. The media is a form of control (estate) that also needs checks and balances. Throw the bums out!

    Who then minds the hen-house?

    A fat hen.

    I chose fat hens and not skinny chickens. :D

    A) That 'super skinny model' pic looks photoshopped

    B) Bulimia/Anorexia are not a choice any more than depression or bipolar disorder are

    C) The threat to our nation from obesity cannot be overstated
