Hmm
I remember I read the first half of a book called The Art of Starving, and that kind of glamorized it? I never finished the book but the main character was always talking about how he felt like he had superpowers when he didn't eat. I never finished the book because it was weird as HELL but I'm sure it didn't stay glamorous for the whole story because when I stopped reading he had passed out in a club or something.

That's the only thing I can think of though.

just found out the inhaler I'm using is expired, which explains why it tastes like gasoline

I love that book so much but I definitely read this book to trigger myself sometimes. It really does glamorize restriction pretty much to the end until he starts recovery. It's my personal favorite
ED book but I definitely see how it's weird to get into!

Not an ED book but if you read “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë I SWEAR THE PROTAG LOWKEY HAS AN ED. Some of the shit she says lowkey is Ana Fairy level.

Oh wow! I've read it twice but never picked up on that angle. I'll have to read it again :)

If I'm looking to trigger myself, it's always Wasted.

Mercy Unbound is also quite glamourising.

I haven’t read Wintergirls in a long time, but I know I still have it and I do read it at times to trigger myself. Right now I can’t access it, but I will be able to soon. Strangely, it’s one of those things that I feel I need to hide; I don’t want others to see it and think the old Tumblr days, where people would call it “the ED bible”, etc. Gross.

Arranged by RK Lilley. It’s pretty ridiculous romance novel about an arranged marriage between a model and a billionaire. There is a lot of emphasis on how the model has to restrict her calories and exercise to keep her model body and it even says the exact calories she eats in a day and the amounts she eats to lose weight.
