The picture is of Isabelle Caro, a French model who died at the age of 28 trying to recover from anorexia. She spent the later years of her life trying to promote health and campaign against anorexia, and wrote a book called, “The Girl Who Refused To Grow Fat”, an autobiography discussing the origins of her disease and her struggles to recover.
Pro-ana blogs need to be banned. It is not wrong to have a disorder, but it is wrong to help others become anorexic or bulimic, when they could otherwise live a normal life. It is normal to be self-conscious about one’s body, but these feelings have started to emerge in girls at a very young age. These girls deserve to enjoy their childhood. There’s no reason they should be so concerned about their bodies to the point of near death.
Promote health by reblogging this. We can help those already with the disease recover and prevent those who are at risk from getting it.
As a women in recovery from bulimia I feel very strongly about promoting health and fitness over starving or “purging”. I know the pain it causes not only to person with this disorder, but everyone around them.
Ohmygod. THIS. They took the words right out of my mouth.

I’m reblogging her answer bc it is SO true and I think lots of people should see it.
A little photo & description I compiled for all the beautiful girls who message me about thigh gaps.
Its okay to not have a thigh gap! That shouldn’t be the end of the world, I never had one and many of my athlete friends don’t either!
^^I wanted to make this post haha REBLOGGIIIIIING
I have never had a “thigh gap” nor do I really want one. I LOVE my large legs and all the power they possess :)
Ladies stop killing yourself trying to make your body something it isn’t and love it for what it is and can be!
“It may seem counterintuitive, but eating more fat can help you shed bodyfat. Researchers found that when subjects boosted their fat intake to about 50 percent of their daily calorie intake while reducing carbs to around 30 percent, they burned more fat during workouts than when on their normal diets. Apparently, eating fat makes your muscles more efficient at extracting oxygen from your bloodstream. More oxygen facilitates better conversion of fat to energy, and your muscles turn into fat-burning turbines. So if you go lower carb, increase your intake of good fats, like those in nuts, fish and avocados, you’ll get leaner faster. Incidentally, that finding may be why researchers in another study found that taking conjugated linoleic acid—a good fat—prior to workouts burns more fat and builds more muscle. Try about five grams.” - Becky Holman
Opt for NATURAL nut butters. The ingredients should just read “peanuts” or “almonds” and there should be oil sitting on the top.
I noticed a jump in my weight loss when I cut down on carbs and increased my healthy fat intake, like peanut butter, nuts, avocados and fish.
Yeah Buddy!! I love, love, love nut butters, Mixed nuts and avacados!
