"The good news is that mindful eating can help binge eaters as well as many other eating issues. During the past 20 years, studies have found that mindful eating can help you to 1) reduce overeating and binge eating, 2) lose weight and reduce your body mass index (BMI), 3) cope with chronic eating problems such as anorexia and bulimia, and reduce anxious thoughts about food and your body and 4) improve the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes. Thus, it has many benefits!"
There is a major misconception among the Pro-Ana community that these people are actually suffering from real eating disorders: Fact: MOST OF THEM ARE NOT-(they think an eating disorder is something they pick up by looking at pictures or reading tips) They clearly have serious issues, but not actual eating disorders-An eating disorder is a mental illness, that has to be diagnosed by a health professional-People that suffer from real eating disorders don't refer to their illness as "Pro-Ana"

Of late, there has been a significant growth in mental health issues in the United States. Sadly, almost 50 percent of people with serious psychological disorders do not receive any treatment.

We created the above infographic to generate awareness about a phenomenon that recently came to our attention called “almost anorexic.” There are a lot of gray areas around the diagnosis and treatment of anorexia (and all eating disorders), and these disorders are becoming more prevalent in the United States (and around the world). Infographic inspired by Jenni Schaefer's Book, Almost Anorexic.
