So, I was scrolling through some threads last night looking for some triggering TV shows to watch through totally legal and legitimate means. I acquired the first seasons of some ED staples like my 600 lb life, my mad fat diary and insatiable, and some general thinspo shows like emily in paris, tiny pretty things and euphoria. I'm not a huge TV watcher as I have neither cable nor netflix, but through these non-sus means I can watch pretty much anything.

 

So, I'm interested in recommendations for some more triggering shows! I'll pretty much watch whatever as long as the plot can hold my attention and the triggering element is appealing to me. Besides, it's about time for a new thread like this anyway, the other ones like it are a little outdated.

 

Share away, and thanks in advance!

Pretty little liars, Make it or break it, The vampire diaries (a lot of the actresses had ed's during filming), Skins. 

 

Also, if you haven't already, Supersize vs Superskinny and America's next top model.

I watch Supersize vs. Super skinny or Secret Eaters. They trigger me so badly, but they are also really interesting documentaries!

I find that Asian TV series are just next level thinspo compared to any western series. If you can be bothered with subtitles, here are some recommendations:


"I Cannot Hug You" (Chinese), the main character is a model and one of the skinniest actresses I've ever seen. 

 

"My ID Is Gangnam Beauty" (Korean), it's about the strict beauty standards in Korea and suuuuper triggering. 

 

"True Beauty" (Korean), also about the beauty standards.

Agree that Asian TV series are satisfyingly triggering as hell.

I'll definitely check out those! Thanks for the recs

Thin. It's a documentary, I always watch it on youtube. But seeing Shelly with her feeding tube always makes me want to keep lose more. If shelly can go as far as to needing a feeding tube... And I know that sounds so fucked up
Much love 🤟🏻

Kind of a weird one but Survivor triggers the fuck out of me. All they eat for the 6 weeks or however long that they’re there is a couple hundred calories of rice a day and they make them do these intensely physical challenges. They visibly lose sooooo much weight over the course of the season

Me too; I live in hope. I suspect the comedy was missed on the majority.

they had to decide on whether to put bank on its always sunny or starved and i think yeah, starved was a bit too 'out there' which sucks, it was genuinely hilarious
