ED is short for Eating Disorder.
Triggering (ED) means that the thread may be triggering to someone who has been affected by an eating disorder.

From the TH Glossary: Triggering - Some threads will contain a "triggering" prefix either marked as such by the original poster or by a moderator. A triggering thread is one that may cause users to want to partake in unhealthy behavior. Examples of triggering material may include weight figures to someone struggling with an eating disorder or descriptions of self harm to someone attempting to recover from self harm.

As stated above, the prefix stands for eating disorder.
Since your question has been answered, I'll close this now.

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."
