Pro Ana means support for those who lives with an ED - it does not mean Pro/for Anorexia !
The forum section as well as the members blog section
is open for those who have Full membership
This is for the safety and respect of the members
As a limited member you can access the Video Page of course :)
The video section is for Post Pro Ana - as well as NeoProAna members
As the forum section has fallen asleep I highly recommend:
NeoProAna if you are over 30 years old and have an ED of the restrictive kind
or of course
Project Shapeshift - http://www.project-shapeshift.net
At that URL you can chose the forum or some remains from the old
Anas Underground Grotto
The site is NOT about becoming sick in anorexia or EDNOS or any other ED
It is about being at a safe place for us who are already there, where you can be yourself
without being judged and try to find the way to a better life
If you have watched some TV-show where they say Pro Ana teach people to lose weight...
It is a lie! Never trust the media - do your own research
To lose weight - just reduce the food intake A LITTLE
You do not need a website, a method or anything for that!
So don't believe Dr Oz or any diet pills salesmen
An open letter to the Italian Parliament, against the criminalization of ?pro-ana? websites
What does Pro Ana mean? So many people has their own answer to that. One short answer would be "not, at least for the moment, in recovery". But there are also Pro Ana sites that are all about Recovery.
What it does NOT mean is idealizing an illness! Post Pro Ana - "post" indicates "after the honey moon"
We support each other - not a disease

Now I, EdNose, still look after this old site as just a video collection
There is lots of video links at this forum. All kind of ED related films. They can be very informative but remember that they also can be triggering
Disclaimer: This forum is mainly for those having an eating disorder and/or SI. If you do not have one, we strongly discourage you from joining if you do not join as a conceded parent or something. They say you can not get ED from being at a Pro Ana site, and that is true. But you can get triggered by sites like Pro Ana or the weight watchers or what ever, or by TV programs like Biggest Loser or Supersize v/s Supersize. Stay safe - it is your life and that is the only life you will get
