Food Is Our Friend

I don't understand how a person can stand the pain it causes to not eat. Once i went threw three days without eating and I had tummy pains. Anyway,I don't think man would have started to eat food if it was bad for us right.

I mean, there are too many people who are too afraid to eat a potato chip.

Food it our friend!!!!! Period!!! I know that I would not have lived the last 19 years without it.

It is a disease indeed, nobody wants to force his/herself to not eat out of nowhere. Anorexia is most likely a disease followed out of a bad self esteem or a depression/ other mental illness. It's a reaction to a negative thing that happened in your life and you cope with it by slowly starting to hurt yourself/not eating/... and because of that, people develope an eating disorder. It's not by choice, it IS a disease, and a very serious one. Nobody chooses an unhealthy lifestyle like that.
I hope you understand.
