Summary
"Katie and Lavinia say that anorexia is a lifestyle, not a disease. They are part of the pro-anorexic world, known as "pro-ana" and they reject the idea of eating disorders, and choose to celebrate them as a lifestyle choice instead. The program looks at the underground network of pro-anorexic websites which encourage people to raise their condition to an almost cult-like status. It tackles head-on the extreme lifestyle of people with eating disorders and what motivates younger people who choose to live their lives in this way. This disease rules their lives with an iron grip and it can be deadly. Katie has attempted suicide twice and tries to live on 200 calories a day. Lavinia has attempted to cut her own breasts off in order to lose weight." (From the UK, in English) -- website
