I get this question far more often than you might think and the hard part is that I can’t answer it. There is no set length that eating disordered last. It’s not like the common cold that lasts a week or two and then your back to normal.

When beginning recovery, one of the first things I needed to do was to get my weight to something more manageable. I needed to gain enough weight so I wasn’t putting so much unnecessary stress on my body. Although it’s hard for most to accept, you are going to gain weight in recovery. There is no way around it. You aren’t going to become obese, but you need to gain enough weight so that your body can be healthy and function properly.
Recovering from an eating disorder is probably one of the hardest things to do. There is no magically pill that can fix everything. Since an eating disorder is a mental disorder, recovery is basically all on you. Of corse, there are people that can help you along the way, but it is ultimately up to you to want to recover.
I decided to do a full day of eating for this weeks blog post! There are many pros and cons when it comes to posts like this. My main purpose is to provide some tasty meal and snack ideas and to give a little insight on what a typical day of mine looks like. Of corse, please no harsh comments or comparisons. Everyone’s body has different needs and you need to find what works for you.
