video of end of first CR vs Eugenia Cooney CR!


Recommended Posts

Sorry, I have no idea who this person is, but she's not on CR - at least not CRON - this frankly looks to me like anorexia. The whole idea behind CR is that it's supposed to be health-promoting. This woman has no muscle mass, and that is the result of starvation not CR. Having almost no muscle mass is not health promoting. Whatever she's doing she should not claim this behavior as CR - it gives CR a bad name, frankly. IMHO, she should seek medical help for her condition. This is not healthy and in fact is extremely dangerous. All IMHO.

From wikipedia:


Eugenia Sullivan Cooney (born July 27, 1994 in Massachusetts) is an American YouTube personality and Twitch broadcaster based in California.[1][2][3] Cooney began her YouTube channel on June 17, 2011 and has over 2 million subscribers. Cooney uploads vlogs, makeup tutorials, and similar content to her channel.[4][5] She also makes posts regarding mental health. Cooney regularly streams on Twitch where she has over 45,000 followers.[6] Shane Dawson featured Cooney in his podcast, Shane and Friends.[7][8]

Cooney's online content has been a subject of much public controversy[citation needed]. In October 2016, petitions were made to ban Cooney from YouTube due to her severely underweight appearance. Around that time, Cooney stated that she did not have an eating disorder and refrained from discussing her weight and eating habits.

In February 2019, Cooney announced that she would be taking a break from social media. Following this announcement, Cooney left social media entirely until she appeared in a video published by YouTuber Shane Dawson in July 2019 after a five-month break. She has since returned to uploading videos at her regular frequency.


Eating disorder controversy[edit]

Beginning in mid-to-late 2015, Cooney began receiving comments on her videos regarding her weight. These comments pointed out that her appearance showed signs of an eating disorder, possibly anorexia. Comments about her appearance gradually increased in number over time, and in late 2015 Cooney's videos began to regularly receive more dislikes than likes. Comments and speculation around her health further increased, with a number of viewers expressing concern in YouTube videos and in Cooney's livestreams.[9][10]

The first picture of Eugenia Cooney, LHS, is frightening. It evokes pictures of nazi concentration camps. BMIs lower than 15. Like Tomb says, that's not CR, that's anorexia nervosa.


Anorexia (an-o-REK-see-uh) nervosa — often simply called anorexia — is an eating disorder characterized by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight. People with anorexia place a high value on controlling their weight and shape, using extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with their lives.


To prevent weight gain or to continue losing weight, people with anorexia usually severely restrict the amount of food they eat. They may control calorie intake by vomiting after eating or by misusing laxatives, diet aids, diuretics or enemas. They may also try to lose weight by exercising excessively. No matter how much weight is lost, the person continues to fear weight gain.

Anorexia isn't really about food. It's an extremely unhealthy and sometimes life-threatening way to try to cope with emotional problems. When you have anorexia, you often equate thinness with self-worth.

Anorexia, like other eating disorders, can take over your life and can be very difficult to overcome. But with treatment, you can gain a better sense of who you are, return to healthier eating habits and reverse some of anorexia's serious complications.
