I understand that you feel like it's your body and no one should be able to tell you what to do with it. But it sounds like 'everyone', assuming that you mean your family, just wants to keep you around.
You DO need to eat! If you don't your body will slowly die. And I don't mean in 30 years. I mean soon, as in 2 years tops. Your body starts to shut itself down after a week without any food. It sounds to me that you need to talk to someone. My best friend WAS ana. Then I took her to the hospital to see someone who was on their death bed because of her ILLNESS. The young girl couldn't even hold herself up because she was so weak. Her hair was falling out, and her teeth were rotting away. But she still refused to eat, because she forgot how to. They had to feed her through a tube. It ended up being too much for her body to cope with and she died. My friend now eats 3 healthy meals a day and runs 30 miles, 7 days a week.

I hope you let your family help you. They love you and want what;s best because they care about you!

eating = life

""I just don't like to eat"" -that's an eating disorder babe.

Your body is meant to have food. Just stay away from all the trans fats and crazy processed foods and SUGAR and you'll be fine. Your body will tell you when to eat and when you're full if you're eating right.

NOT eating is not healthy.

Try the Abs Diet for Women. You can buy it at Wal-Mart for about 13 bucks Hardcover. It's also available on

It contains 789 Best on -the-go food choices, the complete supermarket survival guide, 60 six-minute meals for a six-pack along with other tips on diet and exercise.

Here is a little snippet of it:

This at-a-glance guide summarizes the principles of the Abs Diet: The 6-week plan to flatten your stomach and keep you lean for life.

Number of meals - Six a day, spaced relatively evenly throughout the day. Eat snacks 2 hours before large meals.

The ABS DIET POWER 12 - Base most of your meals on these 12 groups of foods. Every meal should have at least two foods from the list.

Almonds and other nuts
Beans and Legumes
Spinach and other green vegetables

Dairy (fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese)
Instant oatmeal (unsweetened, unflavored)
Turkey and other lean meats

Peanut butter
Olive oil
Whole-grain breads and cereals
Extra-protein (whey) powder
Rasberries and other berries

(notice every first letter spells out ABS DIET POWER)

Portion size- While many diets center around controlling portion size, the Abs Diet is designed to be self-controlling. The High-fiber, high-protein foods you'll encounter in this book will fill you up and keep you feeling full for hours. Your body will tell you when it's time to eat - and when it's time to stop.

Secret weapons - Each of the ABS DIET POWER 12 has been chosen in part of its stealthy, healthy secret weapons - the nutrients that will help power up your natural fat burners, protect you from illness and injury, and keep you lean and fit for life!

Nutritional ingredients to emphasize - Protein, monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats, fiber, calcium.

Nutritional ingredients to limit - Refined carbohydrates ( or carbs with high glycemic index), saturated fats, trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup.

Alcohol- limit yourself to 2 or 3 drinks per week, to maximize the benefits of the Abs Diet plan.

Ultimate Powerfood - Smoothies. The combination of the calcium and protein in milk, yogurt, and whey powder, combined with the fiber in oatmeal and fruit, makes them one of the more filling and easy options.

Cheating Exercise Program - One meal a week, eat anything you want. Optional for the first 2 weeks. Weeks 3 through 6 incorporate a 20-minute, full-body workout 3 days a week. Emphasis is on strength training, brisk walking, and some abdominal work.

At-Home workout - Gym workouts and at-home workouts are both detailed to excuse-proof your fitness plan.

Abdominal workout - At the beginning of two of your strength training workouts. One exercise for each of the five different parts of your abs.

The smoothies are awesome.
