Weight Loss Advice – Why You Shouldn’t Consider Becoming Anorexic to Lose Weight


A disturbing finding

As I was doing my routine keyword analysis for my Internet marketing, I accidentally discovered something that I am not very comfortable with. I found that there are almost more than 2,000 searches a day in the Internet, for the phrase Ways to Become Anorexic. Well, if you are reading this article, you might already know what anorexic means, but just in case if you don’t, anorexia is an eating disorder where people starve themselves despite of already being very skinny, and they are convinced that they are overweight.

I know that there are people affected to anorexia through genetics. But if you are searching ways to become anorexic by finding information in the Internet, you are not likely the one who falls under this category. Why on earth should you do something which is a potential threat to your life?

If you still think that becoming anorexic is your choice of losing weight, at least please read this article to the end. This is the only thing I ask you to do.

3 reasons why you should not use anorexia approach to lose weight

Have you ever seen anorexic people? They are thin of course. Sorry, let me rephrase, they are skinny. Well, you may think that being skinny is attractive, but try to ask those guys out there. Do they think anorexic girls attractive? Or do they think healthy and full-figured models more attractive? Being an anorexic will make you skinny, no doubt about that. But is that kind of skinny your purpose of losing weight? Weight loss is only a mean, and not the purpose. It is a mean to be more healthy, or to be more good looking, or to have more energy. Effective and successful people always focus on purpose, not means. If you want to be an effective and successful person, please do reconsider your actual purpose of losing weight.

Secondly, becoming anorexic not only doesn’t give you the outcome you want. It also come with a package of potential diseases. Do you want to know what are the potential health problems that you might get for becoming anorexia? Here are some of the list:

  • heart failure, which leads to death
  • inability to have children
  • osteoporosis (weak bones which break easily)
  • kidney failure, and you may have to depend on a dialysis machine for the remainder of your life
  • hair loss
  • gastric rupture
  • tooth decay and staining due to frequent vomiting
  • bruises easily
  • sensitivity to cold
  • death

Or maybe you choose to become anorexic because you want to lose weight fast. Believe me, there are still lots of ways to lose weight rapidly and healthily. But if your definition of fast is overnight, then you should remind yourself the saying Rome is not built in one day. Remember the saying slow and steady and win the race. Moderation and balance is always the way to win through life. Extremism will never return any solid outcome, no matter from what areas of life.

Finally I urge all blog owners, article writers and ezine publishers to write and publish your own version of articles on the dangers of anorexia. Please help me to spread the awareness on the hazards of anorexia.
