    She mentioned the Emmys as her motivating factor a while back. I still think she mis-represented her diet though, as aside from that one article that laid out her calorie count, the rest of her posts gave the impression that she was only cutting back by a moderate amount. The sad thing is that her FB page is filled with so many ppl who think that what she did was healthy/balanced/great. Em no… it’s called drunkorexia!

    – Height is irrelevant.

    – Hourglass frame = yes

    – Flat tummy (not rolls, not abs, just perfectly taunt enough to never have a ?muffin-top? pooch occur in any clothing or anything.) = yes

    – I value BIG boobs over pert boobs TBH. I think big boobs are so sexy, as long as they are very round. Not every woman has round boobs.

    – thigh gap or no thigh gap, legs should be slender enough & toned enough to look good wearing a pair of fairly short-ish shorts in public = yes.

    – A bum that could rival a pair of DD boobies or bigger. Peachy & pert as hell. = Maybe. I’m not too pushed about ass. I think big boobs are more attractive.

    – a back with a curve ? you know, like if you stand as you normally would your back arches so your butt sticks out more & you have the ?S? shape thingy going on when looked at from the side. = I have this, but it is kinda annoying as it causes dresses to wrinkle!

    – actual dress size is kinda not really that important either; as long as you have the prior points covered, you could be a size UK 14 & still look goddess-fabulous. = Maybe. Depends on the person. If we are talking ‘perfect’ body I think that few women can carry off a frame bigger than UK size 16 in terms of pure shallow looks, anyhow. Georgia from Fullerfigurefulerbust.com is one exception to this rule though. I’d love to be a UK 10 or less.

    – petite feet & hands for your height / frame. = I don’t care about either.

    – bingowing-less arms & no excess bodybuilder-esque Popeye style muscle = I kinda like arm muscles.

    I use natural deodorant, shmapoo, soap, toothpaste etc. So I am a fan of low checmical living. However, there are lots of paraben free tanning products on the market now. So I don’t know which would be better.

    A lot of those are adrenal insufficiency symptoms too. It would be advisable to get an a.m. cortisol blood test and a 24 hour cortisol saliva test.

    What type of small changes? Can you give me any recommendations? I’ve never found exercise causes weight loss for me, unless I am doing something crazy like 4 hours a day.

    I was thinking of cutting fat back. I wonder how I would do that. I already eat lean meat because I hate fatty meat. I also drink low fat milk because I got used to it during RBTI.

    A properly fitting bra will not block the lymph nodes though, as underwires should *not* sit on breast tissue ever. Also, a properly fitting bra honestly will not cause pain. If a bra causes pain the fit is off. And the US is definitely the worst when it comes to putting women into the wrong size bras. Victoria Secrets for example acts like only 32-38 and A-D sizes exist, when backs actually go from 24-52 (maybe even 56) and as high as an L cup size! So no wonder women end up in the wrong size and in pain.

    Women should not be forced to wear bras if they don’t want to, in the same way no one should be forced to wear any item of clothing. However, I can guarantee that if a bra hurts it is the wrong size. I have converted my friends from wearing the wrong bras and all report that bras no longer hurt. They just thought that they were meant to hurt. Nope, they are not.

    And badly fitting bras will cause health issues. Everything from pain to rashes to more serious health problems.

    The bra studies are badly confounded by the fact that most women are so badly fitted. For example, in the US bras do not seem to exist beyond DDD cup, so large chested women fanangle themselves into the most ill fitting contraptions. In Europe, bras go all the way up to an L cup and bras up to a H cup are widely available at most lingerie stores. When women’s bra sizes are too small in the cup (which is generally the issue) and too big in the back, they ride up and dig in in all the wrong places. The underwireS also dig in, as do the straps. Plus, underwires sit on breast tissue where they are not supposed to sit.

    I am a big follower of busty girls blogs so am very passionate about this subject. My life has been changed by WEARING the correctly sized bras for sure. I know it sounds crazy, but when your boobs are the largest part of your body a bra really does make all the Difference to comfort and appearance. Plus, without a good bra I could never run for a bus or enjoy any type of exercise. It would hurt like a mo-fo.

    “A non-ED person will say she feels irritated, fatigued, hungry and moody when starving. The leptin levels dropping are creating unpleasant moods and extreme hunger to signal to the brain that it is time to go find more food/energy to eat.

    An ED person will say she is not hungry. Although experts dispute whether she actually does feel hunger or not, it is clear she feels calmer, energized and dissociated from negative feelings (emotionally blunted) as a result of suppressing her hunger [S. Guisinger, 2003; M. Duclos et al., 2012]. The ED-skewed neurotransmitters are able to override what the leptin levels should be triggering: unpleasant moods and the desire to eat more. ? http://www.youreatopia.com/blog/2011/9/13/phases-of-recovery-from-restricted-eating.html

    Thumbs up!

    I used to get a high from restricting food, and the longer I went without eating the higher I would get. I used to feel proud of myself for lasting as long as possible without food.

    I sure hope she is smart enough to adjust if necessary. However, she is saying things that I did when I had an ED. She is also drinking coffee again. I have no problems with coffee drinking, but she was so anti it before, whereas now it seems like she is using it as a wl strategy no matter what she says. Also, the fact that she cannot understand why 800-1000 cals a day could be an issue is a problem. Then, her weight loss is very suspect: 20 lbs in two months. Plus 20% bf is low for a woman. Finally, she is quoting sources like Weight Watchers as proof that her plan is healthy!!

    Even her attitude in the comments section wreaks of an ED. I know I acted like her; I was controlling and hypersensitive about my beloved diet/eating disorder. I’m not saying she has an eating disorder, but she is skating on thin ice IMO.
