Ive been thinking about this for a while and thought i would make a video about it as it is easier to formulate myself through spoken word rather than written words. However as i was outside i was a little unfocused.
But basically... studying nutrition and health while having an eating disorder can be helpful as you learn more about how your body works and why you need to fuel yourself properly. But it can also be triggering as you need to focus so much on calories and macros and know how many calories are in different foods, know which oils are good and which are less good, know recommended portion sizes and "good food" and "bad food"... and well - there is alot of focus on food and numbers, basically the last thing you need to focus on while recovering or struggling with an eating disorder.
But also that i think it is a little hypocritical for someone who isnt fueling themselves properly, to then be giving advice to others about how to eat properly. Of course it is easier to give advice than to follow it yourself, and also if you have knowledge you want to share it... but well, sometimes you need to follow your own advice. I.e it would be majorly hypocritical of me to tell everyone to eat and eat enough and fuel your body if i was doing the exact opposite.
Of coures you dont recover over a night, and well health/nutrition can be your job even if you are struggling with an eating disorder.... but i hope you all understand what i mean. And i would love to hear your opinons whether you agree or disagree with me!
