For me it was a magazine that talked about proana websites in 2003 purchased on a family trip to montana.

I couldn’t say for sure but it might have been More Than You Can Chew by Marnelle Tokio. I was in high school at the time, so I’m sure I must have read some before that, but I can’t remember doing so

Like the 1st ED book to come out?

I’ll believe it’s ‘The Best Little Girl in the World’ by Steven Levonkron.
This book inspired Tracey Gold from Growing Pains to be anorexic.

A Spanish YA book. The author (a middle aged man) gave me creepy vibes because he romanticised the anorexic inpatients so much to the point it felt almost sexualising ? The book was supposedly inspired by his experiences as a volunteer in an ED unit so that made it even more sinister.
