      I hope none of you meet an anorexic because telling them to eat or to go kill themselves is not the right way to go. It's pretty detrimental, really.

      you obviously have no idea how it is to be anorexic. you're cold all the time, sometimes you can no longer have children afterwards, it kills your family members, look i'll be fat if i dont have to force my family members to watch me die

      To all the fat fucks that are saying being anorexic is bad for your health, being fat as shit is no better. Being at high risk for gallstones, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, coronary artery disease (CAD), a stroke, and sleep apnea isn't too fucking great. It's basically just asking would you like to look attractive, or disgusting?

      I can't believe anorexics honestly think being bony and purging makes them to any extent sexy, men want a girl with some meat on her, not a pile of bones. You have a severe problem and you need some serious help, and you should seek that out immediately. I rather date a chunky girl than an anorexic one. Being anorexic is worse than being obese for your health, obesity kills you in a while, anorexia takes its toll within a couple years or months.

      Okay silver honey listen to me okay I once went through that were I though that being skin and bones was considered beautiful, I went a three weeks not eating like I should to be a healthy 12 year old girl. When my parents started to noticed that I had lost 15 pounds in two weeks, was when I started to noticed how HARD it was to get up in the morning to get ready for school, it was because I wasn't eating and the worst part is was when I looked in the mirror at the end of those three weeks I though " This isn't beautiful, it pain." Being thin is not what you need, finding love is. finding that person that thinks your gorges even if your fat, skinny, hot ,or ugly. Please notice that before your in the hospital for malnourishment and they force you to eat and watch you in the bath room to make sure you're not throwing it up. I don't want that for you or any of the people that have answered anorexic.

      I've just recently got a pamphlet about anorexia. Here's what it says: "Anorexia is characterized by an obsessive pursuit of thinness and the adoption of a low-calorie diet. Results : difficulty concentrating, to think clearly. Sensitivity to cold. Fainting, dizziness or loss of consciousness. General weakening. Narrowing of the muscles and other organs such as the brain. Thinning or hair loss. Paleness of complexion (anemia). Constipation, drying out and cracking of skin. These behaviors destroy physical health, self-esteem and rewarding feelings" And bones are revolting!! Go search up anorexia on youtube and just try to tell me you think that's attractive. Its harder to recover from a mental illness than lose weight. Being anorexic, you cant just eat and solve the problem, I repeat, its a MENTAL ILLNESS. You don't want to eat! Yes, being obese is unhealthy but it is easier to recover from!

      You have to think of this in survival terms: If you were dropped in a desert, and only had what's on you to live, who's more likely to make it out? The person who, although faster than the other, has no reserves whatsoever or the person who has a decent amount of stores to last?

      Being 'flabby' is much better then being thin. Hugs would feel much better hugging a bigger person but hugging a thin person it'd feel like your hugging a stick.

      I know that I won't understand any of this but I do know it's not as simple as just picking up food and eating it. If you jump right into eating again your body won't trust you and it will store it. Maybe try eating a tiny bit more every now and then. Get someone to make a silhouette of your body and the silhouette of an overweight person so you can see that there is nothing wrong with being a reasonable size

      is someone here saying otherwise? (no, seriously, is there?) Both are terrible illneses, I think most people know this really. The question (and btw, until now I had no 'sweet' questions) is just wich one would you enfure it better!? I'd said anorexia because even though I imagine myself being weak as hell, I'd be able to eat a loot to get out of this (\o/), and being obese everything seems to be harder in life. You can't walk properly, you get stuck into things (airplane chairs, clothes), people give you the looks, and you sweat a lot. And to get out of this you would have to cut ALL the junk food, and exercize like hellllllll, and that's a nono to me D:

      @Morgan obesity is not genetic! its a simple science if you eat more than you need you get fat, you cant get fat by not eating more than you need. If being fat was genetics then why are there no fat people in starving countries? Why is it that only in America where people eat a LOT of food the "fat gene" is found?

      If it was between being anorexic and being fat...I'd choose being fat. But obesity can also be psychological if someone is a compulsive eater. This isn't a "skinny and miserable" or a "fat and happy" question...to me I'd be miserable in either one of these situations. If I was anorexic I could at least hide it from people to some degree and live without a shit ton of scrutiny from other people. People tend to have sympathy for people with anorexia and treat people who are obese like shit.

    I think anorexics are hot, but only the ones that do 90 somethin pounds not those ones you can see their lungs.

    @Alvo Razzi You think that until you actually get anorexia which is not just being really skinny but thinking that your fat and being afraid to put on weight and not wanting to eat so then it is actually harder to eat than to put on weight

    Fat is sexier than skinny. More attractive if we're talking bones. No matter how fat, it will always beat bones.

    Fun fact: Fat people (like me) are warmer, happier, and also are loyal to their life partner.

    It's a lot easier to lose weight being obese than it is to gain weight after being anorexic

    While you're anorexic you wouldn't want to get fatter, and you don't have that problem when you're obese
