Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Tips on how to gain weight

If you want to gain weight, there are some food choices you can make, which will make gaining weight easier for you.
  Because i mean, sure you can eat salad, or drink light milk or skip bread or whatever... but thats not really helping you. Because you're still restricting your food intake, your controlling your food, not allowing yourself certain foods and if you're eating light foods, it often means you have to eat more.

&&&; I'm just gonna mention that, foods that say light or fat free usually have LOADS of chemicals and nasty ingredients which isnt good for your body, so infact... even if its higher in fat procent, the ingredients are more natural and so better for your body. &&& Light foods, are often small (which some people like) but for me personally, ive had a light/weightloss bar before, just because and well... it doesnt fill me up. And it can often lead you to want more, or get sweet cravings. So its better to just eat a proper snack, then to eat some tiny little bar or something.

These are simple changes you can make to your diet which wil help you get extra calories, so you wont have to eat loads but can hopefully gain weight!!

Choose Granola or muslie instead of cereal


Eat a sandwich with breakfast


Make oatmeal with milk instead of water



Drink some form of juice or milk with your meals


Eat 3-4 snacks a day


Add nuts to yoghurt/oatmeal etc


Add dressing/oil to salads


Eat Protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats to both lunch and dinner. & add sauce to cooked meals

  2. I want to gain weight sooooo bad; I'm really not happy with the way my body looks being extremely underweight but since being sick with gluten intolerance, I've had so much trouble gaining weight! Especially since I have quite a few food intolerances and allergies, and can't eat normal bread (and my experience with gluten free bread has been tragic), it's makes it so much more difficult. If you have any additional tips or recipe ideas please let me know, I would be forever grateful! :)
