Are you curious about some of the common (and temporary) physical side effects of re-feeding after chronic dieting, an eating disorder, or any other phase of under eating???
When you’ve been dieting for a long time and finally start eating more, or when you’ve had an eating disorder and start eating more, most bodies will have uncomfortable physical symptoms (digestive issues, skin issues, etc.) Lots of people take this as an opportunity to freak out, and assume it’s a sign that they should go back to restricting.
So, wouldn’t it be nice to hear that those symptoms are… normal? And to be expected????? Ya! We talk about that (among many other things!) on today’s episode.
Today I chat with @DietitianAnna (Anna Sweeney MS, CEDRD-S) about her experience as a dietitian specializing in eating disorder recovery, Health at Every Size®, and Intuitive Eating. But she also shares what it’s been like living with chronic illness and disability, and navigating wellness culture her whole life.
