Same! Also, can't decide if I'm jealous of the fact that she goes to bed at 8:30pm every night or not! :?:

a youtuber i am worried about right now is Holly Gabrielle, her eating habits are so regimented and seriously lacking in the fats her body needs too, especially for someone with a history of restrictive eating. As someone who's struggled with anorexia and was also an archetypal perfectionist at school/university, i can see clear traits in her that i know aren't conducive to good mental health. Any thoughts?

Imo she never really recovered. She is a copy of Merry Rose - high pressure at uni + high-achievers, eating VERY clean, bulking meals with veggies etc. They are in a similar situation, their habits are very similar as well and to me, this is a quasi-recovery as heck.

This popped up in my suggestion box and it pretty much sums up how I feel about recovery vloggers.

I agree with the points that she makes. There’s just something wrong imo with recovery you tubers making 1000 what I eat in a day videos. It just doesn’t sit right with me.

honestly couldn't even tell it was Jenna McCurdy until you pointed it out/after i watched the first few seconds lol

I remember her as Sam from iCarly

I also remember a period in time when she went through some troubles herself; haven't watched the video yet but I'm guessing this is what she talks about

I was wondering when that was gonna be released. Idc if she said she's working with a professional - its actually shocking how anyone can slap their name on something and sell it without credentials, especially when she looks the way she does.

Also the cost of those supplement powders...you may as well just put a bit of apple cider vinegar and lemon in water yourself.

I just discovered Christie Swadling because she was mentioned here and I have scrolled through her Insta and Youtube - that girl really has the typical anorexic mindset? She comes across as a controll freak, everything has to be so tidy and organised and she seems like she can't really handle it when things go different than she has planned them Very amibitious and perfectionistic.
I can't watch her videos though, she is so dramatic/overstressed/fake, trying to be funny but to me she is not.
And she really seems like a copy of Sarahs Day.
///

Someone I really like: Sarah Ramadan. She isn't really a recovery vlogger anymore but more a "normal fitness vlogger". She had her ED back in 2014/2015 (?) and then went into recovery. Competet in Bodybuilding (which is not the best idea imo but she handled it) and since then is just doing lifestyle-bodybuilding. She has been at the same weight since I started following her (1,5 years?) and I think she really did recover. And she comes across really sweet and genuine (sometimes I find her a bit boring and sometimes a little bit cheesy but I do like her).
Please excuse my english, it's not my first language <3

Can we just make a thread for Christie?? she's a serious mess. I can't believe she is denying having an ED. That video has over 4 million views and it's still on her youtube? she is a complete copy of Sarah's Day and probably many other people. From the vegan to paleo, gut health, recovery, gut powders, here editing style and even her personality. Even that artwork she made, direct copy from another artist and she even made it into merch as if it were her own. She even said the only reason she went vegan was because she idolized Loni Jane and wanted to be just like her. She does not have an original bone in her body.

She has weird attachment issues with her mum. She spends a day, every day with her and has no friends due to her ED.
Thing is, she does enjoy eating when she allows herself. But those orgasm faces she makes when she takes a tiny mouthful of something is just creepy. And the constant “this is the first time I’ve ever eaten X” is so grating and probably kinda untrue.

OMG yes I can't seem to look away I always end up watching the videos and sitting there wondering what the hell I'm doing with my life aha.
She reminds me of the patients I'd see in ED treatment in those ED documentaries about the places where people went to old cottages with like 16 other (mostly anorexic mostly female) people instead of hospital.

Elzani is sooo weird. She is very obsessive and needs therapy for much more than her food issues. Imagine having 0 friends and spend your time with mom 24/7. I wonder if she is jealous of her sisters. Especially Alisha is very popular.

Yeah. And she just keeps repeating words while eating so it takes forever.

I recently found her: and I have enjoyed her content a lot!

And the amount of talking she does before every single meal the food must be freezing cold by the time she actually starts eating it

This has to be about Anna Saccone. My problem with her is that she gave young girls diet advice while she was suffering from an apparent ED. When she made a video and said she was cured, she again gave advice, when it's fairly clear she's still got disordered eating patterns. She preaches body positivity while manipulating her photos. IMO she's setting a damaging example for her young, impressionable audience. If you are going to claim to be an influencer then you have to accept that you're selling not only products to your audience but a way of life as well.

I've been following her thread. I'm glad she's finally acknowledging it but she needs to get some professional help. She's still very thin but keeps posting all these "no abs" photos which are just :? Seems more like a quasi recovery than real recovery. Hopefully it's just a phase. I know so many people kind of have to go through that and eventually see the light. I just hope no followers get hurt along the way.

No it's about an Australian IG account Better Being Steph who I think is actually quite a lot more disordered than Anna tbh.
