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.
