We all support each other and keep each other sane
The terms Ana, Pro Ana and Post Pro Ana are defined quite differently by different people.
More often nowadays Pro Ana stands for support for people suffering from any Eating Disorder including for example EDNOS, Bulimia, Anorexia, Orthorexia, OICA and BED.
Support regardless if you want to recover or not. But usually those forums have strict rules against any kind of harmful tips. Dieters are not welcome.
This is not a site for any purpose other than weight loss. All activities, discussions and assignments will be based on weight loss and weight loss efforts. If you are looking for traditional ed forums, please look elsewhere.
The intended audience for Project Shapeshift is as follows:
1. Individuals 18 years of age or older who have Anorexia Nervosa (AN) 2. Individuals 18 years of age or older with another RESTRICTIVE ED (EDNOS-r; Orthorexia; etc.)
3. Individuals who walk Ana's Path in Volition*
IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A **RESTRICTIVE** EATING DISORDER OR *GENUINELY* WALK ANA'S PATH IN VOLITION, THIS SITE IS NOT FOR YOU!
PrettyThin.com was The World's Largest Eating Disorder Community
Earlier they wrote this:
"PrettyThin is a Pro-Ana community that supports individuals with eating disorders (EDs). We do NOT support or promote anorexia or any other ED, but support the individual through forums, blogs, photo galleries, and much more."
They have now given up the effort to try to explain how Pro Ana, at most sites, really are nothing at all like what Dr Oz and others say it is. So they have changed the vocaboulary but it is still the same. Just much smaller than before - still proably the forum with the most members
