Same Difference

The differences between healthy dieting and anorexia


Healthy dieting is an attempt to control weight.
Healthy Dieting

Anorexia is an attempt to control your life and emotions.
Your self-esteem is based on more than
just weight and body image.
Your self-esteem is based entirely on how much you weigh and how thin you are.
You view weight loss as a way to improve your health and appearance. You view weight loss as a way to achieve happiness.
Your goal is to lose weight in a healthy way. Becoming thin is all that matters; health is not a concern.

Actually, the real difference is, if you're a dieter, your body's responding normally and resisting calorie restriction. If you're anorexic, your body isn't so much and is instead succumbing to calorie restriction.
These signs of anorexia aren't attitudinal, they're evidence of it's affecting your thinking.
