Ive gotten alot of emails about just this topic - how to eat after recovery and when you are close to or at a normal weight, so hopefully this will help calm you down :)
People said that during recovery, you should eat 2500-3500 kcal, eat whatever you like, drink whole milk, eat 5-6 times a day, etc. but how about after recovery?? How much should I eat? Should I still have snacks? Should I eat more or less than when I was in recovery? Can I still eat what I want? Is eating a cake for night snacks ok after recovery, when weight restored?
All of my posts since August 2012 are from after recovery. And I have had ups and downs... I've fallen into depression again. I've burnt out. I've been stressed. I've eaten too little. I've had days I've eaten too much. I had a period of too much exercise and then a period of no exercise at all. But that is how life is... its important to remember that just because you are recovered doesn't mean that your life will be a walk in the park. I thought that when I recovered my life would be just how i thought it would be.... Lots of friends, parties, boyfriend, not so much school stress etc etc but I was wrong. It took me 1-2 months in my new school to find my group of friends and that time I feel into a depression again as I felt so lonely. I wanted to change school and even contemplated suicide I felt so bad and lonely and i wondered..... did I recover just for this? to feel depressed again.
