    My ex ate absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, went running everyday and tried to lose weight.

    I tried as hard as I could to get her to eat something, but she would just lie about what she had eaten.

    Eventually it got to me and had to end it, I think she has started to eat again now and work at it, fingers crossed I hope she does.

    Anything she did eat her body stored, she was always down, had no motivation etc.

    Women need to sort it out coz its us blokes that get the consequences of mood swings etc

    There's a couple of issues here,

    1) The science of nutrition has gone through many changes - some very recently. Sadly people (by this i mean health professionals, fitness professionals, writers etc) don't keep up with the new and more accurate knowledge we have accrued.

    2) There are many phsycological and social issues involved when it comes to food and weight.

    sorry gone a little off topic
    A-levels are **** in that sense. Consider that examiners spend an average of ~2 minutes marking each paper and you'll understand why sticking to a mark scheme is so crucial.

    There is NO differentiation between "good" and "excellent" candidates in that sense. One of my best friends, and probably the most intelligent person I know, left a highly regarded school halfway through his A-levels for that very reason. He's now earning in excess of 100k as an investment banker

    I agree. Truth is that your diet, physicallity and health in general is merely a reflection of your phsychological state. People that have extreme eating disorders usually have a lot of issues, not with food but using food as a way of coping or depriving themselves of food as a means of self harm.

    I dunno, I think that size zero rubbish's got a lot to do with it- I was at the cinema watching 300 with a girl recently and I complained that all the women were too skinny and she said "but thinner girls generally look better, don't they?" and I said "Huh, think I'm gonna be satasfied by a woman built like a wire coat-hanger?"

    I was talking to a philosophy and politics professor about a week ago and he commented that more and more, media influences are promoting a thinner build in both men and women, leading to the de-feminised underweight woman and the metrosexual -almost feminine- man forming what is seen as the most attractive group in society. Personally I don't understand this movement, but it's easy to see the causes in the media.
    Green's a very suspicious colour for food....

    Well the thing is if you are completely happy with yourself you dont feel the need to change. Obviously a lot of women do think they need to change (low self worth) in order to fit in with what they think is attractive to other people. So they starve themselves (ie blame themselves) which results in health problems (self harm)

    The size zero bit is something thats been subjected to women for a long time and they are brought up thinking thats the way to go. When and if they do get it that wont make them happy because their belief system is still false.

    I hear all sorts of rubbish, "oh i'm going on the dr bull**** detox diet, you can only eat juice of carrots and spinach for 6 weeks" or something along those lines, you also see people cutting out really stupid things in their diet as they have been told all sorts of nonsense, trying to cut out all fat is a typical thing i see.

    I can remember once somone said to me they had been eating loads of fig rolls because they had heard that no matter how many you ate they didn't put on any weight!

    i always get really pissed off when i see those stupid cereal adverts trying to get women to eat 2 bowls of cereal a day for so many weeks or whatever to get this amazing body for the beach in the summer.
    what a load of f***in S**t, given out these sort of starvation diets out in the media is an unbelieveably irresponsible thing to do
