(Non-ED) Weight Loss in College
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This community is open only to people in college who may be stuggling with the "freshman 15" or just want to lose weight in a healthy way.

This is NOT an ED community. However, (and I am hesitant to say this) occasional SAFE fasting, detox diets and RARE purging (we all mess up sometimes) can be understandable.

An important thing to remember is this: fat is put on gradually and must be lost the same way. The accepted healthy amount of fat that a person can lose each week is 2 lbs, which is equivalent to 7,000 calories. However, it is advised that a person not eat below 1,200 calories a day.

There is no application to join, but it's nice to introduce yourself. I don't care if you do it in a paragraph or a survey. *** Two things I do ask is anyone who joins, please advertise to at least one other community and also please try to comment as much as you can on other people's posts.
