It seems to me though that those places don't offer enough healthy options. Try going to local produce markets, not only are you supporting your community but sometimes you can find some really great deals on the season market items.

Dealing with Having a "Man-anorexic" as a Friend

What goes through the minds of those who wish to lose weight the unhealthy way, via anorexia, is something I have a hard time grasping. The same friend that suffered a traumatic incident of attempted suicide wishes to be pre-incident thin again. I feel that the need to want to be thin was one of the factors, among others, that made want to jump four stories down in the first place. It’s an ugly and vicious cycle!
