Millions of women and men in the United States are suffering from deadly eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, an article written by body builder Pauline Nordin misinforms the public about what eating disorders are and encourages eating disordered behavior in the name of "Fitness". Tell Muscle and Fitness Hers and Pauline Nordin that the article needs to go! Eating disorders are real diseases, please sign this petition to help educate the magazine and body builder about them.

      This article is bullshit and is promoting the wrong things.

      As someone who suffered from an eating disorder, I find this article to be misinformed, offensive to those like myself who've suffered, and encouraging of life threatening illnesses.

      Because I am absolutel;y disgusted with the media and their encouragment of starvation and over exercising and purging. I'm sick of all the lies they feed to men and women and boys and girls that makes them feel awful and sad and not good enough. Give me a freakin' break, body builder man. You probably have an eating disorder yourself.

      I'm signing this because i suffer from bulimia and COMPLETELY disagree that it should be encouraged for "Fitness"! Sure i may be "in shape," but this is not the way to achieve your fitness goals.. also, i don't agree with promoting skinny as beautiful.
