    Model in São Paulo dies weighing 40 kilos, victim of anorexia

    Agência Estado

    The São Paulo-born model Ana Carolina Reston, 21, died yesterday, victim of anorexia. Ana weighed 40 kilos and was 1.72 m tall. She had been hospitalized since October due to kidney insufficiency. Her health conditions got worse and the model ended up presenting general infection.

    Carolina had been represented by the agencies Ford, Elite and L'Equipe, and had modeled in countries like China, Turkey, Mexico and Japan. At 18, the model had mentioned the need of maintaining herself thin due to the profession, but without jeopardizing her health, in a chat promoted by Trip magazine. Her burial took place in Pirapora do Bom Jesus, on the country side of the state of São Paulo.

    Wow.....that's pretty freaking insane. Honestly, I will never understand how anyone can do that....I just won't. It's truly sad.

    Hey models and wannabes! There are other jobs out there that don't require you to deliberately starve yourself to death OK? It's your choice.

    I'm a stupid American so I don't know off-hand what 40 kilos and 1.7 metres is.

    For us yanks: She was what?? Around 92 pounds? And nearly 6 feet tall????? That's entirely fucked-up. Stupid model. How ironic that her name is Ana.

    Erm, I think 1.72 is somewhere around 5'7'' 1/2 Not that she isn't still scarily thin.

    88 pounds is 40 kilos. It's probably not so much the actual weight that did her in as how she achieved it.

    These are not pictures of the model who died, but I thought they might be appropriate for this thread. There is an email going around titled "you think fat is ugly?" with all these pictures in it.

    Lobelia, those photos are awful.
    I don't understand it, wanting to be so thin. Literally dying to be thin.

    Holy shit! I think that is the worst I have seen ever of too-skinny girls. That woman is literally skin and bones. Her body probably cannibalized her organs for sustenance after it ate all of her muscle first.

    Why the hell are (were) the people who work with her encouraging her and telling her she looked good?
