Instagram Will No Longer Support Self-Destruction

Filed under: Tech TalkSad SadDietsFoodEating DisordersBody

We had no idea people actually did this but apparently it happens enough that Instagram had to take action.

We're talking about Instagrams that promote eating disorders and other self-destructive behaviors.

It was allegedly getting to be such a problem that the photo-sharing social networking site released a statement:

"Don’t promote or glorify self-harm: While Instagram is a place where people can share their lives with others through photographs, any account found encouraging or urging users to embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or to cut, harm themselves, or commit suicide will result in a disabled account without warning.

We believe that communication regarding these behaviors in order to create awareness, come together for support and to facilitate recovery is important, but that Instagram is not the place for active promotion or glorification of self-harm."

It seems that all of that should go without saying but we guess there are some confused people out there.

We feel like if someone is using Instagram to share photos that promote self-destruction, then it may be more a cry for help than some sadistic attempt to harm others.

We feel so bad for anyone who feels the need to have an account like that and hope that if they get their Instagram account disabled it'll be a small wake up call to change their lives.

LeAnn Rimes' Personal Trainer Insists She Is NOT Anorexic

Filed under: Leann RimesFitnessPersonal TrainerBody

LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes has been defending her skinny frame for MONTHS from accusers asserting that she has become anorexic.

However, unless she's paying her personal trainer to lie to the press, he says otherwise!

In fact, Michael Jackson, a Tier III trainer at Equinox, goes as far as to call the rumors "comical and absurd". In a recent interview, he told sources:

"Her eating and workout regiment is very consistent and efficient on a daily basis. LeAnn is in the gym three to four times a week which includes her 20-30 minutes of strength & conditioning, as well as 20-30 minutes of boxing with 10-15 minutes of cardio."

If anything, the trainer blames his country singing client's crazy work ethic for her thin figure, but maintains her diet is still "very strict" whether on or off the road, saying:

“Her eating on and off the road is very strict, and she takes this very serious being that she is constantly on the move with her career. These rumors of her being bulimic and anorexic are pretty comical and absurd."

We hope the rumors are as absurd as he says because she does appear to be the incredible shrinking woman these days. If her work schedule is melting off the pounds all too easily, maybe it's time for her to take some time off and relax!
