Eating Disorder Forum

Welcome to the Eating Disorder Forum! Eating Disorders are very difficult to overcome even with the care of a professional counselor, therapist, medical doctor and/or nutritionist. The isolation we subject ourselves to when we are in our eating disorder behaviors is a very lonely place. So let’s help each other by offering caring words, encouragement, advice, ideas, experiences, and HOPE for recovery!

On this forum the following items are all acceptable!

Ask a question about eating disorders

Comment and answer other peoples posts

Help others by describing what worked for you in your recovery

Mentor someone on their recovery journey

Share your personal story

Use it to express how you are feeling about what you are going through and seek support

What is not acceptable

Derogatory remarks

Belittling a member

Harsh statements or words

Pro eating disorder comments.

We are a pro-recovery site and hope to help others obtain recovery. Please join in and let's conquer Eating Disorders together!



No part of this website is considered medical advice. You are STRONGLY encouraged to seek the advice of a qualified, licensed and competent medical doctor, therapist or psychiatrist before starting any recovery techniques listed on this site or in the forum.

Eating Disorders Forum


Post your comment, recovery journey, journal entry or question in the Eating Disorder Forum box below. It will first be reviewed by me to confirm that everything is family friendly and then it will be available for others to comment and offer support on as well.

Any information can truly inspire someone who is just starting out on their own recovery.

Let's inspire and support others!
