Oh wow! You are way off track what you need to do is sit back and think about this issue from a completely different angle. Do you remember the 80's?? Eating disorders were primarily among men. Steroids, slim fast, protein shakes, meal replacement bars and "swallowing raw eggs" are beyond the most popular form of eatting disorders. I know what your thinking, these are all forms of dieting, yes they are but many people especially men abuse them. For women they use slimfast to do simply that... to slim down and this is an acceptable form in society. Men on the other hand abuse eating disorders in an opposite faction because men want to "bulk up". In anorexia woman decide to not eat at all and if they do they eat very minor things like grapes and iceberg lettuce which has no nutrition facts at all. Men on the other hand chug protein shakes and protein bar that feeds their bodies nothing but body building materials. These habits not only ruin your body but your life because of how expensive it costs. At least being anorexic you save money up, think about it groceries generally cost $85 a week for one person.
