Men and women are different when it comes to losing weight. Usually it tends to be easier for men because they naturally have more lean muscle and that is due to their testosterone levels. Men store most of their fat in the abdomen and women store theirs in their hips or thighs.

One of the most unhealthy diets around is known as the 'starvation diet" this diet will help you lose weight fast but in a very un healthy way. And they are setting themselves up just to gain more weight because when you dont eat the body gets its energy from stored fat. But then when you decide to start eating again your brain tells your body for you metabolism to slow down. in the end oyu will have more stored fat than you did before.

Pro-ana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pro-ana refers to the promotion of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. It is often referred to simply as "ana" and is sometimes personified by anorexics as a girl named 'Ana'.[1] The lesser-used term pro-mia refers likewise to bulimia nervosa[2] and is sometimes used interchangeably with pro-ana.

Pro-ana organizations differ widely in their stances. Most claim that they exist mainly as a non-judgmental environment for anorexics; a place to turn to, to discuss their illness, and to support those who choose to enter recovery. Others deny anorexia nervosa is a mental illness and claim instead that it is a "lifestyle choice" that should be respected by doctors and family.[1]

Medical professionals treating eating disorders have long noted that patients in recovery programs often "symptom pool", banding closely together for emotional support and validation.[3] Anorexics may collectively normalize their condition, defending it not as an illness but as an accomplishment of self-control and an essential part of their identity.[4]

Thinspiration is often featured through images videos and blogs (usually celebrities) that show abnormally thin, emaciated females. These blogs help support the female pro-ana population cope with the effects of eating disorders and help promote them.

Exercise is the key to weight loss. Exercise increases your metabolism which is what burns fat. The best time to exercise is about 30 minutes before dinner time in the evening because your metabolism slows down 8 hours after you wake up.
