The Limits of Weight Loss
I really don't understand why some people want to look like this. Do you seriously think this is attractive?
It's better to eat a variety of food in the right proportions to be slim and not eating a lot and then purging your food with self-induced vomiting. It's better to be curvaceous like Kate Winslet than to be a bag of bones. At least you can flatter your assets.
And starving yourself is so NOT cool. Why throw away the food when you have it? Have you ever thought of the kids in Africa who want to eat but can't?

I bet you've never seen anything like this before. If you're the kid, I'm sure you'll never want to starve yourself to be thin.
But of course, I'm not asking you to eat until you're like this kid here, although he's kinda cute.
If you want to be slim, then this is the most you should try to achieve. Don't ever try to exceed the limits!

Some of the images are disturbing, but you make such a great point. I believe in what you say. A lot of my friends always talk about losing weight, and I always (almost desperately) try to convince them that eating is good, and that children should eat and be healthy. Of course, no one heeds that piece of advice. Nope.
I'm really glad you brought this to attention, thanks for putting it on "paper" ^_^

Moderation is definitely an important factor in staying slim. Being healthy and fit is a good thing, being ridiculously thin is not.
