Welcome New Members!

Hello new member, and welcome to Boys With ED; one of the rare and few forums created specifically for males with eating disorders! We're glad you discovered this place and hope it will provide you with all the comfort and support you need for whatever disorder you may be struggling with! First things first, whether you're a recently registered member or someone who is considering the registration process, there are a few things you need to know about this forum before you begin posting. It is very important that you read and understand the following:

    Boys With ED is...
  • A site for harm-reduction.
  • A site for emotional support.
  • A safe and non-judgemental environment.
  • A place for all individuals with any eating disorder.
  • A place to make friends with people who share your turmoils.

    Boys With ED is not...
  • A pro-death, pro-suicide, pro-self-harm site.
  • A place to develop an eating disorder.
  • A place to ask for tips on how to get or nourish an eating disorder.
  • A diet forum.
  • A site that strictly adheres to any particular eating disorder.

If you do not understand or do not agree with the points made above, please either leave now or get in contact with a member of the staff (those of which will be listed below).

Think you're ready to start posting? Not quite! Many members come to this site unsure of their eating behaviors and whether or not a simple case of disordered eating may, infact, be a full-blown eating disorder. So the question arises: How do I know I have an eating disorder? There are many disorders far and wide, and it's easy to mistake one problem for another. If you do not know if you have an eating disorder, or are not sure which disorder you may have, please consult the following resources:

    Do I Have An Eating Disorder?
  • Are you at risk for disordered eating?
  • Eating Disorder Screening Quiz
  • The EAT-26 Eating Disorder Screening Test
  • Eating Disorder Questionnaire
  • ANRED Self-Test
    * Please note that none of these should be used to substitute a medical professional's official diagnosis.

    Which Disorder Do I Have?
  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Binge Eating Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified
    Other Disorders
  • Bigorexia
  • Night Eating Syndrome
  • Orthorexia Nervosa
  • Pica
  • Prader-Willi Syndrome
  • Sleep Eating Disorder
    * Please note that none of these should be used to substitute a medical professional's official diagnosis.

So you're now entirely certain that you have an eating disorder, and you want to be a part of this forum. Where do you go from here? Well, before you can start posting, it is required that you read through the following links. (If you don't, I promise that it will reflect heavily on how other members will approach you here. Respect the site. Read. Wink)
