Overcoming an Eating Disorder With Instagram - The Atlantic

The Atlantic Overcoming an Eating Disorder With Instagram

Hayley Kremer, a 20-year-old student at Colorado Mesa University, believes that her eating disorder first began in high school—but she’s struggled with body-image issues for much longer. She’s been in recovery for a few years, and sees both a nutritionist and a counselor. But on top of these more traditional recovery resources, she largely credits her Instagram account for the significant progress she’s made in getting better.

Kremer’s account is devoted to her recovery, and her feed is filled with colorful photos of carefully prepared meals and occasional treats, as well as pictures of herself as she’s progressed through and beyond her eating disorder. Most of Kremer’s posts include lengthy descriptions of her personal recovery story, attracting a wealth of comments from others with similar experiences. There’s a substantial community of recovery accounts like Kremer’s, and hers has amassed more than 18,000 followers since she started it in 2012.

Troubling “thinspiration” and “pro-ana” (as in anorexia) posts that promote disordered eating with glamorized photos of emaciated bodies and words of encouragement from fellow sufferers have long existed on social media and elsewhere online, but recovery accounts such as Kremer’s show another side of these disorders entirely: the hard work of getting better. (For the record, Instagram has an official policy banning images or hashtags promoting self-harm.) These recovery accounts are usually maintained very regularly, mostly by young women and girls in various phases of their eating-disorder recovery. They function as both a food journal and documentation of the process from disordered eating toward healthy habits. Some include recipes and detailed descriptions of meals; many feature “body progress” photos comparing before and after photos of users as they begin to recover. Most take on a confessional tone—detailing fears, accomplishments, and anxieties about food and body image.

The elements of a changing world, from technology and business to politics and culture.

This type of account offers the combination of a support system and a degree of anonymity. Many users don’t create their recovery account in their full name, and others never include photos of their faces. Erzsie Nagy, a student at Middlebury College, admits that she was very embarrassed when people from her personal life first discovered her recovery account. though she later grew more comfortable with the idea. The vast network of other recovery accounts forges a supportive digital community for those pursuing health—one that, for some, becomes a group of real-world friends.

“I have met some of the people I’d consider my best friends through this account,” says Malia Budd, a student at Duke University who maintains a recovery Instagram and has wrestled with anorexia and other disordered eating behaviors for about five years. (She’s been in recovery for about a year.) “It’s kind of a crazy thing to tell people you met through your Instagram, but people post such personal things that it’s easier to get to know someone on such a different level,” she says. She considered attending an in-person support group at her college, but never attended because the available spaces filled up. She’s comfortable in the Instagram recovery community because of the layer of separation it offers from her everyday life: “It’s harder to open up to someone if you know you’re going to see them in different environments every day.”

But not all of these recovery accounts look alike, and some still show an unhealthy preoccupation with food and body image. Many users will document every meal and snack, others include calorie counts, and some will share figures such as their lowest weight or “days binge/purge free.”

“Part of an eating disorder is an obsessive quality around food intake and exercise,” says Rachel Benson Monroe, the clinical-programs coordinator at the Multi-Service Eating Disorder Association in Newton, Massachusetts. “Anyone who is spending an inordinate amount of time talking about or posting about what their food intake is—that’s gonna be a little bit of a red flag.”

As an image-based platform, Instagram lends itself to tendencies often associated with eating disorders, such as an obsession with physical appearance and constant comparisons to others’ bodies and diets. “Certainly we know that social media doesn’t cause eating disorders,” says Claire Mysko, the director of programs at the National Eating Disorder Association. “But it can amplify a lot of the thoughts and behaviors associated with one.”

"It’s kind of a crazy thing to tell people you met through your Instagram, but people post such personal things."

Because these accounts aim to promote recovery, it stands to reason that the users who maintain them may not have yet freed themselves of all the rules and self-regulation that come along with an eating disorder. Others looking at their posts may feel the line blurring between the promotion of healthy habits and a continued preoccupation with diet and exercise. Benson worries that many individuals recovering from eating disorders might have a hard time parsing these conflicting themes when looking at other recovery accounts.

Mysko points out though, that while these accounts could send mixed messages to viewers, or inadvertently promote some bad habits, that doesn’t reflect on users’ intentions. Rather, it’s totally realistic. “Even when people are motivated to recover, they have setbacks,” she says. “If you’re doing all your recovery in public, that can be triggering for some people, but paints a pretty real picture of what recovery is.”

Kremer acknowledges the potential for these pitfalls. Last fall, she took a month-long break from Instagram—she usually posts several times per day—to focus on her recovery, because she felt the platform was inhibiting her progress with her disorder. She was becoming too wrapped up in her Instagram, rather than focusing on making positive changes in her real life. “Some girls feel pressure to post pictures every day of their food and their bodies,” she said. “Feeling the pressure to do that every day is not healthy at all.” Kremer emphasizes that she doesn’t post photos of everything she eats—and never includes calorie counts, to dissuade her followers from making comparisons.

Her hiatus allowed her to come back to Instagram with a better mindset, and she has resumed regular posting and has reached out to others with recovery accounts if she grows concerned that they’re posting too frequently or writing a lot about comparing themselves to others on the platform. “I’ve told a lot of girls that they need to take a break from Instagram,” she says. “I used to be just like them, so it’s hard for me to see them like that.”

In many cases, the nature of a recovery Instagram evolves as its user does. Budd admits that her account started out as more of a food journal, which in many ways wasn’t particularly helpful for her eating disorder. Only when she began formal recovery, with counseling and outpatient therapy, did she redefine her account to focus on truly recovering. She now regularly posts about her desire to live a healthier life, celebrating the times that she overcomes her fears of certain foods. “Some [people] only use these accounts until they get to a comfortable place,” Nagy says. “Then once you stop associating food with negative emotions, it can be helpful to stop using your Instagram. Part of finishing your recovery can be deleting the [account].” Kremer’s Instagram bio used to mention that she was recovering from an eating disorder—while her posts still revolve around her food and exercise habits, she has since removed that identifier from her description so that it no longer defines her.

"Once you stop associating food with negative emotions, it can be helpful to stop using your account."

Mysko says that the appeal of an anonymous Instagram support system makes particular sense for this community—“because there’s a lot of shame and secrecy involved” with eating disorders—but she still emphasizes the importance of face-to-face interaction. “To be able to say these things aloud, in real life, can be really important,” she says. For Benson, the most compelling reason for in-person support groups is the regulation: “The difference with in-person groups is that they’re run by therapists and people who have themselves recovered. They’re monitored, and really carefully done—as opposed to peer-led.”

While recognizing the potential for negative consequences, Kremer, Budd, and Nagy all credit their Instagram accounts with significant improvements to both their outlooks and their support systems. (For all three of these women, Instagram is only one element of their recovery; they’ve all used other resources as well.) They also all mentioned the value they found in helping others recover. “People reach out to me and tell me I’ve inspired them to become better,” Budd says. “They’ve told me I’m the reason they go into recovery. It makes me feel really good that I’ve helped other people, and if I ever relapsed, I have so many others to keep me accountable.”

There’s no one-size-fits-all model for eating-disorder recovery. Posting publicly about recovery on social media could be helpful for some, but not for others. “Eating disorders are very nuanced, highly complex, and vary by individual,” Mysko says. Following and maintaining these accounts can be an aid or an obstacle to recovery, she said, “depending on what someone’s triggers are.”

Benson echoes this sentiment. “If you’re working on your recovery and you post an Instagram that’s asking for support, and you get a lot of responses that are supportive and helpful, who am I to complain about that?” she says, but adds, “Someone may get a lot of support from Instagram, but there’s no substitute for evidence-based medical care.”

The Case Against Reality

A professor of cognitive science argues that the world is nothing like the one we experience through our senses.

As we go about our daily lives, we tend to assume that our perceptions—sights, sounds, textures, tastes—are an accurate portrayal of the real world. Sure, when we stop and think about it—or when we find ourselves fooled by a perceptual illusion—we realize with a jolt that what we perceive is never the world directly, but rather our brain’s best guess at what that world is like, a kind of internal simulation of an external reality. Still, we bank on the fact that our simulation is a reasonably decent one. If it wasn’t, wouldn’t evolution have weeded us out by now? The true reality might be forever beyond our reach, but surely our senses give us at least an inkling of what it’s really like.

The Secret Shame of Middle-Class Americans

Nearly half of Americans would have trouble finding $400 to pay for an emergency. I’m one of them.

S ince 2013, the Federal Reserve Board has conducted a survey to “monitor the financial and economic status of American consumers.” Most of the data in the latest survey, frankly, are less than earth-shattering: 49 percent of part-time workers would prefer to work more hours at their current wage; 29 percent of Americans expect to earn a higher income in the coming year; 43 percent of homeowners who have owned their home for at least a year believe its value has increased. But the answer to one question was astonishing. The Fed asked respondents how they would pay for a $400 emergency. The answer: 47 percent of respondents said that either they would cover the expense by borrowing or selling something, or they would not be able to come up with the $400 at all. Four hundred dollars! Who knew?

Game of Thrones and the Paradox of Female Beauty

The HBO show’s sixth-season premiere taps into a longstanding (and sexist) trope: anxieties about women being something other than they seem.

Warning: Season 6 spoilers abound.

It’s the scene the entire Season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones —and in some sense the series up to this point—has been building toward. There stands the Red Woman, Melisandre, the goddess behind so much of the show’s deus ex machina. in her bedroom. A fire crackles. A candle flickers. Music, at once sharp and flat, plays. Melisandre, regarding herself in a foggy mirror, unbuttons her dress. It falls away. All that remains is her necklace—a choker made of metal, completed with a red stone. The tension builds. The notes swell. She gazes at herself. We gaze along with her.

And then—a gong rumbles into a dramatic crescendo—she is transformed: An old woman, naked, stares back in that mirror. Melisandre’s glossy red hair has been replaced with sparse, white strands. Her eyes have sunken; her breasts have sagged; her back has hunched. The camera lingers on her naked body; we linger, too. She seems small and shriveled and weak. More than that: She seems sad. Melisandre slowly folds her frail body into her bed. She covers it with a blanket of animal furs. She sleeps.

The Obama Doctrine

The U.S. president talks through his hardest decisions about America’s role in the world.

F riday, August 30, 2013, the day the feckless Barack Obama brought to a premature end America’s reign as the world’s sole indispensable superpower—or, alternatively, the day the sagacious Barack Obama peered into the Middle Eastern abyss and stepped back from the consuming void—began with a thundering speech given on Obama’s behalf by his secretary of state, John Kerry, in Washington, D.C. The subject of Kerry’s uncharacteristically Churchillian remarks, delivered in the Treaty Room at the State Department, was the gassing of civilians by the president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

A Fairy-Tale Ending for the Game of Thrones Premiere

Three Atlantic staffers discuss “The Red Woman,” the first episode of the sixth season.

Every week, for the sixth season of Game of Thrones. Christopher Orr, Spencer Kornhaber, and Lenika Cruz will be discussing new episodes of the HBO drama. Because no screeners are being made available to critics in advance this year, we'll be posting our thoughts in installments.

How Americans Became So Sensitive to Harm

A recently published paper explains how “concept creep” in the field of psychology has reshaped many aspects of modern society.

A mother leaves her son in the car while popping into a store at a strip mall. She is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A high school senior complains to her Facebook friends about a teacher and is suspended for “cyberbullying.” Students at Wellesley start a petition calling for the removal of a statue of a man in his underwear, claiming that the art piece caused them emotional trauma. So many residents of Santa Monica, California, claim to need emotional support animals that the local farmer’s market warns against service dog fraud.

How did American culture arrive at these moments? A new research paper by Nick Haslam, a professor of psychology at the University of Melbourne, Australia, offers as useful a framework for understanding what’s going on as any I’ve seen. In “Concept Creep: Psychology's Expanding Concepts of Harm and Pathology ,” Haslam argues that concepts like abuse, bullying, trauma, mental disorder, addiction, and prejudice, “now encompass a much broader range of phenomena than before,”expanded meanings that reflect “an ever-increasing sensitivity to harm.”

Left Outside the Social-Justice Movement's Small Tent

Why a high school senior feels alienated from activist groups that share causes in which he believes.

Mahad Olad, a high school student, used to be active in “the local social-justice scene” around Minneapolis, Minnesota, attending meetings and leading demonstrations for feminist, LGBT, and anti-racism groups. Then he became disillusioned.

When he was just 16, the ACLU profiled the teen activist. He came to the U.S. as a child. Later, his immigrant parents took him back to their home country, Kenya, so that their son could experience what it was like to live in that culture as well.  

“In Kenya, he saw the harsh realities faced by women trying to access reproductive health-care services and how the gay and lesbian community is forced to live underground,” the ACLU explained. “While Mahad cares about many social-justice and civil-liberties issues, he is especially drawn to reproductive freedom and LGBT rights because of his experience in Kenya. He has been one of his school's biggest advocates for comprehensive sex education and has helped to organize events at his school to teach students important information about comprehensive safe-sex practices, something that his school does not teach in class.”

Is Grit Overrated?

The downsides of dogged, single-minded persistence

“W here does the power come from to see the race to its end?” asks the Scottish sprinter Eric Liddell in a scene from Chariots of Fire. His answer—“from within”—was until recently about as far as we’d come in understanding the roots of dogged persistence.

Besides the famous “marshmallow test,” in which preschoolers who abstain from eating one get rewarded with two, measures of motivation have remained mushy. For most of its existence, even the United States Military Academy at West Point, where the celebration of unflagging commitment is etched into the campus statuary, lacked a reliable determinant of which cadets would have the drive to endure their first seven weeks (colloquially known as “Beast Barracks”) and which would say no más and go home. SAT scores, it turned out, were no predictor, nor were ACT scores, high-school rank, physical fitness, “leadership potential,” or any other measure of aptitude. At one point, military psychologists even showed cadets flash cards of random images in hopes of unearthing some subconscious basis for staying power. That, too, failed.

The Growing College-Degree Wealth Gap

A new report demonstrates a stubborn chasm between rich and poor students earning bachelor’s degrees.

The nation’s colleges continue to graduate far fewer students who grew up in poor households. With the country’s economic potential possibly hanging in the balance, a new report urges the United States to dedicate more resources and know-how to closing the college-completion gap between wealthier students and those from low-income backgrounds.

The issue boils down to the number of college-educated workers that will be needed to fill the bulk of the country’s new jobs—two-thirds of which will require some college background by 2020 —and the dearth of college degrees held by lower-income workers. With well-paying jobs in manufacturing and the trades largely a relic of the nation’s industrial past, the middle-class pathways for workers with just a high-school education are few and far between. The basic arithmetic underscoring America’s labor needs points to a possible future in which the poor are unable to take full part in the nation’s economy, creating great social and economic strain.

What ISIS Really Wants

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

What is the Islamic State.

Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as “not Islamic” and as al-Qaeda’s “jayvee team,” statements that reflected confusion about the group, and may have contributed to significant strategic errors.

    Yolanda Foster Continues Lyme Disease Treatmen to Get That Brain Back in Gear: Mobile

    Yolanda Foster Continues Lyme Disease Treatmen to 'Get That Brain Back in Gear'

    by Michele Corriston

    Yolanda Foster isn't giving up on her fight against Lyme disease.

    The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who won't return next season due to her health crisis, is undergoing neurofeedback training to treat her condition.

    The former model posted an upbeat selfie with her head all wired up Thursday.

    "Time to get that brain back in gear. #NeuroFeedBack #LymeBrain #LymeDiseaseAwereness," she captioned the Instagram.

    Foster, 51, has been open about her journey ever since being diagnosed with Lyme in 2012.

    "I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can't process information or any stimulation for that matter," she wrote in a blog post in January. "It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it."

    But there's still hope: Neurofeedback involves monitoring and then training the central nervous system and brain activity using sensors on someone's scalp, according to the International Society for Neurofeedback & Research. It has proven effective in treating ADHD and epilepsy and, though studies are still being conducted, could possibly improve cognitive functioning in advanced Lyme disease patients.

    18-Year-Old Model Edits Her Instagram Posts To Reveal The Truth Behind The Photos

    18-Year-Old Model Edits Her Instagram Posts To Reveal The Truth Behind The Photos

    18-year-old internet sensation Essena O’Neill had been making thousands of dollars modeling on Instagram and sharing her pictures with almost 580,000 followers, but all that changed last week. The Australian deleted 2,000 photos from her account and changed the name to “Social Media Is Not Real Life.” She has since re-captioned many of the remaining photos to reveal the “truth” behind them, and launched a new website, “Let’s Be Game Changers.”

    “Without realising, I’ve spent the majority of my teenage life being addicted to social media, social approval, social status and my physical appearance,” O’Neill wrote in an October 27th Instagram post. “Social media, especially how I used it, isn’t real. It’s a system based on social approval, likes, validation in views, success in followers. It’s perfectly orchestrated, self-absorbed judgement.”

    She broke down and re-captioned her Instagram photos to reveal the truth behind her photos

    She was spending 50+ hours per week curating her social media persona – “I was miserable. Stuck. Uninspired. Angry”

    “I didn’t enjoy the act of creating art, writing or any forms of self expression like I once did as a child”

    Last Tuesday, O’Neill deleted 2000 photos and changed her Instagram title to “Social Media Is Not Real Life,” encouraging others to unplug too

    Watch Essena explain the idea behind the changes:

    I watched her video in which (near the end) she is begging for money to support her because she now has no income because she has stopped modelling. Well what did you expect? If you want to be able to pay your rent, here's an idea - GET A JOB like everyone else has to do if they want to get through life.

    I think a large fear that she had was that she had spent so much of her life focused on making money through social media that she can't exist without it. She needs to start over and find a career, and get a job, but she has nowhere to start. I don't like the idea of asking the internet for money either, but I'm not going to condemn her for needing a little help to get started on a career path that won't make her miserable.

    @Rebecca: She made lots of money off her photos during the last years. Shouldn't that be enough to get her career started? She's young, pretty and healthy which are good conditions to find something. If she needs help, then her parents should take care of that. From the pictures she and her family don't seem to be poor. Look at that house, furniture, etc. Looks like upper class to me. It's a shame people donate money to her. Donations should go to people who really need them to survive and not to those who aren't poor anyway.

    I get you, it certainly feels so unreal most of the time. But maybe we should give this kind of acts a chance of being true. I see it as a girl who opened her eyes and in her unhappiness tried to change something, and tried to show people what she is trying so hard to change. Of course she probably hopes to get publicity, but this time in a good and changing way. From what she says, I feel like she already had that other kind of publicity at first, and really didn't enjoy it. Own opinion tho, I totally respect yours too ^ :)

    I watched her video in which (near the end) she is begging for money to support her because she now has no income because she has stopped modelling. Well what did you expect? If you want to be able to pay your rent, here's an idea - GET A JOB like everyone else has to do if they want to get through life.

    I think a large fear that she had was that she had spent so much of her life focused on making money through social media that she can't exist without it. She needs to start over and find a career, and get a job, but she has nowhere to start. I don't like the idea of asking the internet for money either, but I'm not going to condemn her for needing a little help to get started on a career path that won't make her miserable.

    @Rebecca: She made lots of money off her photos during the last years. Shouldn't that be enough to get her career started? She's young, pretty and healthy which are good conditions to find something. If she needs help, then her parents should take care of that. From the pictures she and her family don't seem to be poor. Look at that house, furniture, etc. Looks like upper class to me. It's a shame people donate money to her. Donations should go to people who really need them to survive and not to those who aren't poor anyway.

    Yolanda Foster Lyme Disease Instagram: Real or Fake Health

    Yolanda Foster’s Lyme Disease 2015 Journey

    Yolanda Foster

    Yolanda Foster has been dealing with Lyme Disease for the past couple years and she has been fighting it every day. Two of her children (daughter Bella and her son Anwar) have the disease as well as Foster told People. When my two youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me. It's affected her speech, thoughts and health a great deal and she says some family and friends have not been supportive. Though, it's clear her children and husband have been behind her 100 percent until recently. While battling the disease, Yolanda and her husband David Foster have decided to divorce. Click here for the sad details. Last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Foster was so ill that she could only be present for part of the taping of the season 5 reunion. This season, she continues to struggle with the disease and now faces issues with some cast members questioning her illness. Kyle Richards and Eileen Davidson have spoken out, defending Foster in the media, saying that she absolutely suffers from the debilitating disease. Richards told Us Weekly : She 100 percent has Lyme disease and is really suffering. There’s no question about that at all, so I really want to be clear about that, because there have been people thinking I doubted or questioned it because of a comment made in which I was discussing the trailer for the upcoming season. Richards is addressing a moment on the show when Lisa Vanderpump says to her: I don’t quite understand what’s wrong with her. I don’t know if it is Lyme disease, but I’m not criticizing her. I’m just questioning it. In addition, it looks like Lisa Rinna may get stuck in the middle of this controversy this season. As for what Foster has to say about her disease, she told Bravo: It’s been a long journey. I look quite normal, but yet I’m so sick. I have weakness in my legs, no brain function. I mean, I haven’t driven a car in three years. Throughout her journey in fighting the disease, Foster has been documenting her treatments online.

    There is something wrong with Yolanda, but it is not chronic Lyme disease, because there is no such thing as chronic Lyme disease. Poor Yolanda has surrounded herself with charlatans and fake doctors in an attempt to cure her fake disease. What she needs to do now is fire all the quacks, and get to a proper Psychiatrist to get herself out of the sick role which she is playing so well.

    Instagram for Chrome (Mac)

    and expert advice
    Instagram for Chrome Articles Instagram for Chrome

    Instagram for Chrome is an addon that allows you to access your Instagram account from Chrome .

    After installing Instagram for Chrome you'll see a small Instagram icon in the top right-hand corner. Simply click on it, enter your log-in details and you can instantly navigate between photos of friends and popular images on Instagram. You can also browse photos by area, to see what fellow Instagramers are doing in your city.

    There is one major flaw though. Instagram for Chrome does not allow you to upload or download photos or display pictures in higher resolutions. Also, if you want to switch accounts and enter other credentials, you need to uninstall and reinstall the extension.

    However, overall Instagram for Chrome is a great tool for keeping tabs on your Instagram account from within Chrome but not for publishing your own photos.
