So here’s the deal, I need help protecting my eight year old sisters mind from my mom’s dangerous diet mentality. My mom has been obese her entire life and in exchange has developed a very unstable idea of diets. She forced me on to one when I was 8 (and healthy) and it has created a history of eating disorders and self hate in my own life, yet for some reason she is insisting of continuing the cycle.
My mom is recently following the new OMAD fad (a diet where you eat one 800 - 1200 calorie meal a day and then fast for 22 -24 hours) and my youngest sister “wants” to do the same. Chloe is very healthy and amazingly strong and for some reason my mom just insists on providing all of her children with mental illness and damaging our potential. I know my sister. There is no way she will be able to eat more than 450 calories before she is full, and then strave the rest of the day. She’ll end up eating later, feel guilty, punish herself and then before you know it we’ve lost another girl in the family to the binge, starve, punish, food cycle.
My mom does this with all of us in one way or another, be it with physical and emotional abuse, ED habits, or Christianity. How do I put a stop to this? No matter how much I try common sense is not working.
Spells, demons, curses, anything would be helpful.
