of people with eating disorders. Typically, they came
from students and journalists. Currently, the most common
requests come from web surfers looking for online photos

you personally suffer from an eating disorder, we care
about you and want to help you to recover. Seeing photos
will not help in any way. Sometimes people get competitive
about how thin they are. Comparing yourself to others
with an eating disorder is not productive. Going to
