Description

Pro-Ana is a social movement that positively promotes anorexia and related eating disorders based on the belief that these are lifestyle choices and not disorders. In this study we investigated the different behaviors and thoughts related to Pro-Ana and Anorexia as well as behaviors and thoughts related to typical diet and exercise patterns. Data were collected through an online survey format that asked questions about individual behavior and thoughts in an anonymous fashion. Our purpose was to discover whether or not the group known as Pro-Ana is really separate and distinct from individuals who are anorexic.
