The ABC diet is not a diet. It’s controlled starvation and it’s incredibly difficult for a normal person to follow.

Anorexics are mentally ill and their illness is such that they cannot accept it (ego-syncronic). The result of that is they are constantly looking for reassurance they are normal as they obsess about their bodies and their abnormal relationship with food. They want to feel like part of a group of people who are normal…at least among each other. So, they create websites and call them euphemistic names such as “Thinspiration”. They constantly look for other pro-anas to offer them reassurance that they are normal. They look for ways to support their need to be thin by calling starvation programs “diets”. Etc. That’s why the “Skinny Girl diet” and the “Anorexic Boot Camp (ABC) diet” are not real diets in the conventional sense of the words. They are quite literally control starvation which will lead to death.

• Anorexia is the most deadly mental illness.
• A study by the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders reported that 5 – 10% of anorexics die within 10 years after contracting the disease; 18-20% of anorexics will be dead after 20 years and only 30 – 40% ever fully recover
• About 8 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder (does not include over eaters)
• 0.5% of American women suffers from anorexia.
• 2.5% of American women suffers from bulimia.
• 1.1% – 4.2% of females suffer from bulimia nervosa in their lifetime.
• About 10% of college women suffer from a clinical or nearly clinical eating disorder, including 5.1% who suffer from bulimia nervosa.
• Studies indicate that by their first year of college, 4.5 to 18% of women and 0.4% of men have a history of bulimia.
