New Eating Disorders Feed and Group

posted in Eating Disorders |

The fabulous FatFu (of the famed Notes from the Fatosphere feed), has helped me set up a eating disorders feed I call the Eating Disorders Digest. I’ve also set up a Yahoo! Group called Eating Disorder Studies for activists at all levels to discuss the medical, social, and cultural studies on eating disorders, and to provide a place of support and recovery.

If your blog addresses eating disorders (it need not be dedicated to eating disorders) and you want to be added to the feed, submit your feed address below. If you’d like to embed the feed on your page, feed addresses are below.

Feedburner feed
(recommended, platform independent)

Google feed (prettier to read)

Here are the blogs added to the feed currently: EDBites , Feed Me!, FatGrrl, 5 Resolutions, Digging Me Up, Mamavision , Good With Cheese and Disordered Times. All are pro-recovery sites, although not necessarily anti-reality sites, and all address a spectrum of eating disorders from binge eating disorder to anorexia. I’d like the feed to be even more diverse of eating disorder experiences, from young girls to adult women to men with eating disorders and yet others with unconventional experiences. Please help spread the word about both the feed and the group. If you know of any other blogs you feel would be appropriate for the feed, suggest ‘em below. And if you need help embedding the feed on your site, let me know.

Update: I wanted to add, the larger purpose of the feed is to promote cross-blog collaboration and a network of support to both readers and bloggers. If you want to be added to the feed, I would ask that you also add the feed so that it is visible on your site. If you have trouble adding the feed to your site, please let me know.

    Have you thought about adding the ED recovery blogs over at Gurze? is Jenni Schaefer’s and from her site, there are links to the blogs of Aimee Liu, Karen Koenig, and others.

    Thank you for including Digging Me Up!

    It’s a bit strange that these things are called “feeds.”

    I’d like to be in it. I’ve not been blogging about this long, and I’m a bit erratic, but it’s mostly ED related.

    a POST pro-ana community dedicated to helping people along the path of recovery. For those of us that got lost into the eating disorders underground on line where we can feel urged to be healthy and happy instead of sick and depressed. It is a very wonderful source of support where there are NO emanciated pictures to be found (unlike some other links)

    That’s great that those are all the same sites I visit!

    Are you not awesome!

    It’s a bit strange that these things are called “feeds.”

    I think that’s the best laugh I’ve had all day (and it’s been a long one).

    Feeds for the soul, peeps. Feeds for the soul.

    Haha, which makes the title Eating Disorders Digest all the more strange!

    This doesn’t relate to the above post but I had to turn somewhere to share my frustration. I like to scan and read stories on the MSN home page, generally a good portion of the stories are trash however the site is good for a quick update on happenings; I’ve never been downright offended until today.

    I’m lost for words.

    This is a great idea. I would love my ed recovery blog to be added.

    I think this is a great idea, Rachel!

    I want to be on the feed, but I’m having trouble adding it :-(

  16. 16 On May 1st, 2008, Rachel said:

    I’m not sure if you can add it in Blogspot, Tori. Or I don’t know of a way how. I added mine in WordPress as a widget. Any Blogger users here who can help Tori out?

    I would like to be added if I could:

    I have had eating disorders all my life off and on. I’m 28 years old and last March I decided I wasn’t going to diet for one whole year! My blog chronicles my experiences and includes social commentary on celebrities and the media as well. Please put me on the feed!

  19. 19 On May 5th, 2008, BamaGal said:

    I would like to have my blog added please.

    Tori to add it to a blogspot blog—-add page element—choose the feed option–paste the feed URL–the max number of visible posts is 5—then save–place it where it needs to be in the sidebar.

    I have both the Fatosphere and the EDDigest on my blogspot blog.

  20. 20 On May 5th, 2008, Tori said:

    Yay, thanks Bama, I got it! :)

    Ok, now can you add me to the feed:

  21. 21 On May 11th, 2008, Tracey said:

    Great Job Rachel!

    If you could add moi, would be so grateful. I can’t embed the feed on my blog as of yet… quirks with WP– but they will come through at some point unless you have feedback on “how to’s”.

    A friend and I have a new ED recovery blog we’ve just started. It’s still rough, but we’re posting and working on getting more content up soon.

    I write a blog that is basically a mental health commentary. It is largely dominated by eating disorders posts… usually about journal articles, news stories, things I’ve read on other websites

    I would love to be included in the feed…

  24. 24 On May 17th, 2008, Tracey said:


    I was able to embed your EDDigest onto my blog: apologies for previous post.

    Hi, I just started an ED recovery blog and have included the ED-Digest in my list of links, would you mind adding me to the feed?

  26. 26 On June 6th, 2008, brie said:

    Please add me to the list, as well. Thanks!


  27. 27 On June 8th, 2008, Tori said:

    Hey Rachael can you add me back on there?

    Thanks! :-)

    [...] are several blogs I need to add to the Eating Disorders Digest feed. Interesting in seeing yours added? Submit your feed address in the comments [...]

    Hi there,

    I’ve just started a new blog about my holistic/alternative approach to recovery from an eating disorder. I would love to be added to your feed!

    Rachel, I’d like to be added to the feed. I read a number of these blogs and find them quite interesting. Mine isn’t completely devoted to ED, but is recovery oriented and about life in general.


  31. 31 On June 12th, 2008, Rachel said:

    Okay, I think I’ve caught up with all the recent site additions. Let me know if you don’t think yours has been added.

    Sara: When I tried to access your page, I received a message that your account had been suspended, so I wasn’t able to add your site.

    I’m going to shut down comments on this thread because it’s getting older and I don’t often see comments made here. If you’d like to have your site added, please visit the new thread here or contact me.
