How do you cook your sweet potatoes?? They always look so good!!
I slice them thinly and then put into the oven at roughly 225 degrees for 15- 20 minutes... you can also add oil and salt and pepper beforehand!
What would you do if you didn't use so much social media? Like would you spend more time with family and friends instead of just sitting online?
Not so sure if this comment is supposed to be rude or not, hahah. I do spend time with family and friends and i also spend time online... you can have both! There is 24 hours in the day so it is not like i just sit on the computer allday or all of my freetime. Of course when i am on my own then i do, but when i am with family and friends i dont use so much social media... unless we are watching a movie, then i'll use my phone and do other things as i cant just concentrate on a film. What would i do if i didnt use so much social media... i dont know, its not like it takes over my life, i still do everything else i want to do in life, hahah. So it is not like i am priortizing away things?
Why did you had to move the appartment and did your old housemate move with you into the new one? Are these all special student Appartements which get only rented to studends or normal Appartements where also studenst can live in an share it?
I had to move as there had been a water leakage which had been going on for a few months/almost a year, so there was water under the floor of the whole apartment. It is a pity that we had to move but they had to fix the apartment and basically redo the whole apartment flooring.
Yeah, both me and my roommate were offered a new apartment and got to move to another student apartment in the same location. The area i live in and the apartment i live in as a student apartment and only students live in that area :)
do you think that some of your stomach pain can be psychological? that you get sotmach pain from anixety and stress or when you are at home because you dont like being at home?
I have actually thought about that... and at times i do think it can be partly psychological but i think it 95% has to do with my digestion problems, sensitive stomach as well as stress. So those 3 combined dont make the best of situations haha, but i am learning what my stomach tolerates and what it doesnt, but at times when i disregard those things such as when i am at home then my stomach begins to ache. The psychological part i think is mostly when i am stressed or anxious and it suddenly feels like a knot is in my stomach or a begin to get a sort of "sick" feeling rather than pain, then its usually got to do with how i am feeling or what is going on in life.
I was wondering what your bmi is and if a dietician has ever told you to cut back a bit on the amount you eat now youre healthier?
1. I am gaining weight on 2000 calories per day, will I eventually maintain on this amount or continue gaining forever?
It depends what stage of recovery and weight gain you are in.... if you are in the first stages of weight gain then you should try to increase calories to around 2500-3000 a day eventually, if you are in the later stages of weight gain such as only a few kilo until you are at a healthy weight then your body should adapt, though it is individual and depends on how you have eaten in recovery. For example if you have continued to eat very restrictively and little during the weight gain process then the body wont adapt to an increase.
I have a few posts about this topic which i will link and might give you a better answer :)
2. When can you trust your hunger in recovery?
This is once again very individual. For me it was when i began to feel hungry during the regular meal times i had and began to feel full after the meal/towards the end of the meal. Because at the beginning i just wasnt hungry and never felt hungry for food, and then when i went through my binge and purge cycle i was always hungry and never felt full.... but when i followed my meal plan and ate at certain times each day then eventually my body began to adapt to that, and then when i stopped following my meal plan i would be hungry in the morning when i woke up and hungry at 10am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm... all the times i ate according to my meal plan, but as i wasnt following the meal plan i could choose what to eat, and if i ever took a too big portion and began to feel to full, i knew i could leave what i couldnt eat.
I would say wait atleast 1-2 months while following a meal plan with regular meal times before you begin to do things on your own, if that is what you want. But the first few weeks anyway your signals will be a little weird and wrong. You might feel full after just a few bites or feel really hungry despite eating a huge meal, or feel hungry the whole day or not hungry at all. So eat regular meal times and when you begin to feel a hunger during those times you usually eat and begin to feel full, then the enzymes and hormones controlling hunger and fullness are beginning to work properly again, Keeping up with regular eating and meal times is the best and just because you have your hunger and fullness feelings back doesnt mean that you just forget about regular meal times and eat only when you get the hunger feelings.... or you can do that when you know you are fully recovered, but as long as there are still disordered thoughts its good to keep a regular eating plan regardless if you feel hungry or not.
