This community was created for anyone who has eating problems, self-esteem problems, eating disorders, etc. This community is not pro-eating disorder of any kind. No one is here to bash on anyone else--thin or heavy.
-It's open. No name-calling, bashing, aggravating other users, or pro-ed tips. Be sensitive to the fact that others here are dealing with anorexia, bulimia, obsessive-compulsive over eating, as well as many other issues and disordered eating.
-Images shouldn't trigger others. Don't post weight loss/progress pictures or use icons that show emaciated bodies or self-injurious things. Check to see if your default picture is appropriate.
-Use a lj-cut (with text explaining what your post contains) for posts containing numbers or things that could be triggering. Here's a post that shows you exactly how to make a lj-cut. -This community may or may not be in moderation mode. Maintainers have a right to accept or reject any post. -This is not a diet journal community. If you feel the nutritional value of your food is important to a post that involves more than just the nutrtional value of your food, then go ahead and post using a lj-cut because numbers may trigger others. If not, please post your daily caloric intake in another community or personal journal. -No pictures -No linking to other websites or communities. If you wish to promote a community, do so at community_promo.
