* The GothicLolita series ''IC In A Doll'' focused one chapter on Hanako, an award winning author suffering from extreme bulimia. In her adolescence, Hanako was repeatedly molested by her stepfather, and makes herself vomit to stay thin in order to wear clothes for younger women to give herself a second childhood. Her maid doll, Cherry, silently stood by and only laid out towels whenever Hanako prepared to purge, but Cherry goes against her orders and tries to stop Hanako when she has a nervous breakdown. The final chapter of the series shows a much healthier and happier Hanako preparing to get married.

* Maria Mena has "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy", which is about her struggles with eating disorders and her relationship with others:
-->''This hunger grows inside me like a tumor\\
The dizziness just compliments this failure of a girl\\
I'm settled now; the show of mine consumes me\\
But every pound I shed speaks volumes for my lack of self control''

* Despite being fairly thin, Yun from ''Manga/NewGame'' worries about her weight constantly. Though this probably comes from her absolute hatred of any form of exercise.

* Played with both ways in ''TheSantaClause'' and its sequel. As a result of Scott Calvin becoming the new Santa Claus, Scott wakes up one morning and is startled to discover he's put on a great deal of weight. And as his bathroom scale indicated, he was getting heavier by the second. At first his transformation is solely due to magic, but later it becomes due to his newly increased appetite for sweets. In the second movie, Scott gradually begins to lose weight and revert back to the way he was before he became Santa. [[spoiler: His body promptly swells back up the moment his marriage is made official.]]

** Jon puts on a noticeable amount of weight in one episode, and decides to go on a diet, especially after seeing an appetizing looking diet program on tv. [[VeryFalseAdvertising He along with Garfield are both sorely disappointed when the food turns out to be the size of a grain of rice and tastes terrible.]]
** Jon's neighbors, the Burnsides, decide to move, tired of Garfield always stealing their food. They soon realize, however that with Garfield, no longer around, they both put on a lot of weight in a very short amount of time. They quickly move back before they end up "looking like elephants by Christmastime".

* The lighthearted ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' #34 showed an Earth where [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] had an eating problem instead of a drinking problem. He once ordered an ''entire cow'' for dinner along with [[AndADietCoke a diet soda.]] He eventually couldn't use the rockets in his suit and had to get his armor on using a crowbar.

* In the plot to take down Regina George in ''Film/MeanGirls'', her "killer bod" is one of the items that comes under attack. The means? Protein-heavy granola bars that are supposed to help athletes gain weight, passed to Regina as if they're diet bars. Despite Regina's weight gain being a significant plot point, [[HollywoodPudgy the actress' size doesn't change in the slightest.]]

** One episode dealt with this as seriously as the show could could. Sabrina tried to lose weight in order to fit into a dress for an upcoming dance, but then started using shoddy diet drinks from the Other Realm. To make matters worse, the salesman put a spell on her bedroom mirror to make her reflection look morbidly obese. Zelda found out what happened when she saw her butt reflected much bigger than it was, and took the spell off. Unfortunately, by that point Sabrina legitimately believed she was huge and kept taking the diet shakes until she became invisible. She [[IncrediblyLamePun wasted away into nothing.]]

* This happens to Stella Stone in ''Theatre/GreatBritain'' when she keeps losing weight for Page 7 of the Free Press and becomes anorexic. Unlike most examples of this trope, this was taken ''very'' seriously, turning first act comic relief and BrainlessBeauty into a KnightOfCerebus and [[CerebusSyndrome causing the play to take a fairly dark turn.]] [[spoiler: She ends up being hospitalised early in the second act, and despite being force-fed she eventually reaches the point where her body is just starting to die, in no small part due to Paige's manipulation. By the end of the play, she is dead.]]

* Amy Rose took this UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle,'' being obsessed with boxercising and later being coached by [[RobotBuddy Emerl,]] who instructed her to do 100 push-ups and eat nothing but salad with no dressing. This is taken to creepy levels as, rather than merely lamenting about her weight and failing to maintain a diet like most examples, Amy really appears to be suffering from an eating disorder.

** "Sweets and Sour Marge" played with this trope by having Springfield named "America's Fattest Town" and the citizens are overjoyed by being famous for something. All except for Marge, who is slightly disturbed by how everyone seems to be celebrating their obesity. She strives to sue a sugar-manufacturing company out of protest for destroying the town's health, only to have ''all'' sugar banned from Springfield. Homer and Bart work to undo this because life without sugar is too much of a hell to comprehend, and although Homer pulls back for Marge's sake, the judge overturns his decision and [[StatusQuoIsGod things go back to normal.]]
** In "Krusty Gets Kancelled," Bart and Lisa were shocked when they discover a morbidly obese Krusty in his apartment just as they were to announce that they got all of the celebrities (sans Elizabeth Taylor) needed for his comeback special. Krusty declared that he was on a steady diet of milkshakes. [[OhCrap Lisa asked if they were diet milkshakes.]] Luckily, the Simpson family [[TrainingMontage got him back in shape just in time]].

* Generally speaking, woman not only gain weight more easily than men, but many have a significantly more difficult time losing it, particularly in the abdomen. There are theories as to why this is (stress from maintaining societies standards, as a side-effect of a woman's reproductive abilities, ect.), but many people are split on the exact reason. Along the same vine, regardless of gender, weight-loss becomes harder and harder as a person ages, so a twenty-year old would have a much easier time of it than a forty-year-old.

* While it's not the same as the 'big-boned' myth, there is such a thing as being "Endomorphic"; people with wider builds who gain weight more easily and add it to the abdomen.
