What the hell. There are supposed to be spaces and paragraphs, and I've tried several times to edit it, and it still looks like a block of text. Sorry.

Well what do you think is going on? You're hungry! GO get your macadamia butter and whatever you crave, you don't have to skip your work out if you like it, muscle mass is always a good thing. Good luck!

I know, it's always weird to post your body pics and ask random strangers what they think about it, but I really need honest opinions. I'm not an attention seeker. The thing is, mirrors lie to me. http://postimg.org/image/unatlbqp1/ (more)

Honest answer: I want to feed you, not eat you. In my opinion, you are quite a bit too thin all over and do not look very healthy.

You should eat a diet higher in carbs. Try some fruit. I don't know if you exercise in the morning or in the afternoon, but to use exercise as a way to get hungrier, you might want to exercise earlier in the day. To read more about hunger... (more)

How do you decipher between orthorexia/anorexia and paranoid schizophrenia?

I suspect schizophrenia and anorexia nervosa have some kind of link. Years ago I worked with a man who had schizophrenia. His sister had anorexia nervosa and was probably going to die. It was strange how similar their symptoms actually were.
