there's a girl on tiktok and instagram, i think her name is jen or something, who has so obviously fallen into orthorexic tendencies and hasnt fully recovered from her anorexia at all. i believe she's relapsed now and is getting treatment as she hasnt posted in awhile, but before seeming like she's relapsed she was so obsessed with clean eating and having extremely low body fat. she flexes being fully recovered and saying she eats so many carbs, but has shirataki noodles instead of pasta and little things like that. i think it's so harmful to promote recovery as that

is she the one who is always holding GIANT bowls of food in her tiktoks? she claims she eats like 4,000 calories a day but there's no way that's true

yes thats her!! jen.peach is her username i believe. she also posts photos of her being extremely emaciated. and is constantly holding up and flexing massive bowls of food saying like "this is what u have to eat if u want to gain muscle and gain weight!" 

 

i feel bad for her she doesnt seem to be doing well. if u look at her recent videos that were around christmas u can she she's lost tons of weight again :(

i think i remember seeing someone on mpa say that they knew her from treatment and that she's hospitalized right now, i hope she's doing okay

replying to both u and the person who u quoted, she actually seems to be doing really well if u look at her recent videos imo. her face looks so bright and she seems so much happier, and is weight restored. i think it's great how far she's come.

although i do find it very very strange how attached to her family she is, and it seems like others have the same concern as well if u look at the comments under her videos.


I think she has sustained brain damage from her long term ED tbh
At low weights the brain shrinks and doesn’t fully recover when weight restored which I think contributes to her attachment with her family

This is more about recovery videos because I’m back to bulk-watching them atm, and they’re all like:

- As a child I was always happy
- Then ~sports~
- Started watching my weight
- Hospital
- Now everything’s fine and I’m so grateful for all that’s happened!

Not hating, but I’ve had an ED for 18 years. What magic pill did you take to fix it all after one hospital visit? I feel for these girls because I hope that really is it, but I know for most of them, everything is not going to be fine.

Oh man.. maybe it's because I took so long to get treatment, so my ED had a lot of time to develop, but I just cannot imagine getting hospitalized once and being like oh look! I'm cured! I have absolutely no clue how healthy ppl eat bc I haven't been that since I was 12 and I have no idea how to get back there... but I know a 7 day hospital stay isn't gonna be the sole solution.

Most of them put on such an over-the-top, cheesy personality that completely lacks any realness or depth. Maybe that’s how recovery is for people with no other comorbid mental illnesses, but it just seems so bizarre and unrelatable to me. A lot of them still seem disordered one way or another too, whether it be binging, purging through exercise, orthorexia, or anything else.

This!!! I've wondered about the comorbid thing a lot and the bright, pastel posts ppl make about "nourish to flourish" and "food is fuel" just seems so far away from where I am right now that it makes recovery seem impossible. Like, I'm dealing w both an ED and near-constant suicidal ideation; eating a sandwich is not gonna bring me to whatever magical world you're living in where all you do is love yourself and #fuckana!

Agreed

I also find the over the top positivity and happiness to be kinda fake

Recovery of anything is not always a straight line. There's good days and bad days and I think its really important to show the bad days and the bad moods too because it'll let other people know it's normal. Especially since EDs can be competitive, someone going through their own recovery might feel like their recovery is inadequate because they're not always happy and positive

Wow, I just looked her up and that was triggering af. Claiming to eat 4000 kcal at 5'2" - blatant lies. And it doesn't matter that she has a tiny bit of muscle, she's still clearly underweight. I am jealous of her yoga ability though lol.

"EATING MY FEAR FOODS", "FIGHTING MY ANOREXIA RULES", whatever else, type videos.
they'll sit there and like drink calories and cringe for 20 minutes and go into detail about their anorexia rules, THAT'S TOTALLY IN THE PAST, but be wincing and i honestly just think anyone watching is taking notes. while the OP is putting on the theatrics sniffling into a chicken sandwich.

Also it really annoys me when they have to say how long it's been since they ate that food. Like "haven't had ice cream in 5 years" but about literally everything. The recent(?) focus on fear foods has made me obsess about so many things I could eat easily before smh

Before/after pictures. 

 

Like, I get it, you are SO proud of your weight restored body, as you should be.

 

But for the love of god, if you're going to post pictures of your "before" Can we PLEASE avoid body check style pics...like holy hell. Nothing makes a recovery account better than seeing a side profile "Before" with a full exposed rib cage and then an "after" picture of a girl smiling holding a big burger or slice of pizza.

this so much. i get so irrationally angry watching these kinds of videos, i literally have to put my phone down and go do something else. i don't understand why you'd want something that personal up for the internet to see. like it just seems like another way to prove their sickness imo.

No way any medical professional would call her "recovered" at that weight.
And she's shaming people who are calling her out in the comments. Yikes.

I hate it when they are so positive and promote recovery but they relapse every like 2 weeks or sum and they’re like “I’m gonna keep going and you should too! F you anorexia, you won’t win!” Umm I think anorexia already has won.
