But by what you say i think you have some kind of phobia (an irracional strong fear to something) but is important that you tell your mother (or some doctor if your an adult now) that you might have anorexia or some phobia and that you need help about that, anorexia is not a game, it is very common and dangerous and if you fall in some depresion in your life time and you have anorexia then it can go out of control and kill u. Manganese5 on August 13, 2010 at 4:28 pm When I’m stress I refuse to eat anything. I hate eating and my mother threatened to send me to psychiatrist when I was six but I was so scared of talking about my fear of eating that I pretended to eat my food but I puked it up in the garden. I had to pretend I don’t have any problems with food or else my mother would call me stupid if I said I was scared of eating. Now I’m really afraid of being obese that find it a struggle to eat and my hair and nails go all gross from not eating. balletdancer131 on August 13, 2010 at 5:21 pm what if your stressed but control yout eatting still would you still get fat tomatoedrama1 on August 13, 2010 at 5:51 pm @Desarollo true and true but stress doubles the chances of what you just described. chrismeg34 on August 13, 2010 at 6:32 pm my bro is about 250 im like 215 ten percent body fat my bro has like 15 we are big but my bro is huge like not fat he is but he is built we both play football FutureTeacher99 on August 13, 2010 at 6:40 pm @breakthrice well as an overweight person, I was home alone a lot and when my parents were home they were fighting and I knew candy was yummy so I ate it, all the time, granted I am paying the price today, and I don’t want my children to think that food is their way out of a situation. And frankly there are some people who don’t have that mechanism in the brain that says we are full now and keep eating until they feel sick. Desarollo on August 13, 2010 at 6:44 pm @daftmarzo that’s hilarious. when i was a kid i use to climb up unto elementary and high schools too. all the time. it was like an obsession for me and my cousins. totally weird, i never knew other people did that too. it’s was totally fun. ahh the good ole days. the challenge of figuring out new schools was the most exciting part. good luck fellow climber. climb as many as you can. Desarollo on August 13, 2010 at 7:33 pm you aren’t going to end STRESS. it’s also the least important factor here. look at the entire third world, where stress levels are enormous. they aren’t fat. the most important factor is lifestyle, i.e. MCDONALDS. corporate greed and over-consumption killed a whole section of a generation. fat children are incredibly profitable. there is no other explanation that accounts for the american-centric phenomenon. americans aren’t more stressed, however they are slaves to corporate food. fugiboo on August 13, 2010 at 7:41 pm GOOD FOR YOU!! koigirlAnimations on August 13, 2010 at 7:42 pm @daftmarzo because that is skinny dear daftmarzo on August 13, 2010 at 7:42 pm I can’t be fat right now. I’m 13 and I’m very skinny, although I way 135 pounds. I do eat my mothers home cooked meals with organic foods (maybe this helps). Also I tend to get exercise ALL the time, I climb the roof of elementry and high schools all the time. But I always stay 135 pounds and I still look skinny. breakthrice on August 13, 2010 at 8:14 pm i dont understand how this can happen like how hard is it to just eat till your content. deletechildobesity on August 13, 2010 at 8:36 pm Good video.

They see theese pictures and photos of the picture perfect girl and thats what they think they’re expected to be.They’re stressed.They go and eat.Then people tease them on their weight.Another factor may be at home or school stress.Parents fighting…bad grades….ect. duckmaster50 on August 14, 2010 at 12:10 am Whaaaat? why try it on rats?
