I have taken to the same tactic when exploring the Pro-Ana sites. A bowl of popcorn and a diet coke arm me as I sit and look through pages of blogs, pictures and poetry. I feel like I need this food, kind of like we girls did while watching AMTM, to remind me that food is good, that it is great actually! This practice I have taken on has led me to realize that I am sensitive to this issue, and thus need to deal with it certain ways. That said, I would like to discuss a feature of these sites that is common across the board: THINSPIRATION.
What is 'thinspiration'? As the name suggests, it is thin-inspriation. This component of the sites is a photo gallery. These galleries feature either photos of the girls themselves and celebrities. Particularly popular for their thinness is Mary Kate Olsen, Nichole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff, Kira Knightly.
Apparently you don't even need to visit these sites to get thinspired - just type in the word at youtube and there are so many videos made by Ana-Mia girls.
If you're feeling sensitive, I suggest the candy armor tactic before checking these sites out:
