Comprehensive list of ED-related subreddits

Rules

  1. No pro-ED content (Full Rule) - No thinspo or names/links to find it (including finding users through here to PM them it). No asking for or giving tips that perpetuate harmful ED behavior (e.g. disordered weight loss, finding proana buddies, judging body pictures). Harm reduction tips ARE allowed (e.g. binge eating prevention, purging safety). Posting or seeking harmful pro-ED content will result in a tempban or permaban, to moderator discretion.

  2. Off-site Content (Full Rule) - No self-promos for social media or other platforms including Peach and Discord. Please use the EDAnonymous Peach Friend Exchange System instead!

  3. No memes - In an effort to preserve the semi-serious atmosphere of this sub, please do not post memes. /r/EDanonymemes, a sister subreddit under different moderation (thus is not endorsed by EDA), is available for your meme-ing pleasure.

  4. Strictly no subreddit drama (Full Rule) - We have a zero tolerance policy for mentioning other subreddits to complain or brigade. Likewise playing 'guess the subreddit' is also not allowed. This will result in a tempban, and a permaban for repeated offenses, because it could result in our support community being banned. Linking subreddits as a helpful resource is allowed.

  5. No fat shaming, racism, sexism, homophobia, or other bigotry (Full Rule) - We are an all-inclusive support subreddit and will not tolerate homophobia, transphobia, fat shaming, racism, sexism, and any other bigotry or shaming here. People of all sizes and gender identities can suffer from an ED. Refrain from igniting arguments and use kind language. Please report hurtful content instead of engaging with it.

  6. Trigger Warnings (Full Rule) - EDAnonymous is inherently triggering, we cannot recommend you continue to visit this subreddit if you're in recovery. But we still ask you use the TW flair and specify further in the custom flair or title if you think it is needed. Do not use weight loss or food-related numbers in the title of your post. Please see our easy flair guide here if you need help or information.

  7. No "do I have an eating disorder?" Posts (Full Rule) - Nobody here is able to professionally diagnose anyone else. Please instead click here if you are worried you may have an eating disorder. We also have more information on eating disorders here.
