I have a long distance friend who is dieting, and from what she tells me there is definitely a lot of calorie restriction going on. I've accepted that as long as she's seeing a doctor regularly, that it's absolutely no business of mine regarding whether it's healthy or not. However, it's also not a series of conversations I want to have with her.
We're only in touch with one another via the internet, so it's easy for me to avoid conversations that veer into her diet. However, it's also clear that the way she's talking about her diet has been rubbing her friends the wrong way and causing other friction in her life.
I think that she might benefit from some kind of community where she can really talk about her diet/food issues/etc with other like minded people. Are there any diet boards that people have found helpful for this kind of discussion? Is the Special Diets board here good for that? She's not going to join any kind of group that costs money, so those are out - but any other suggestions would be great.
