Still confused

Been in recovery for 4 weeks after restricting for a year (it was only really bad for a month). The first three weeks I just ate whatever I wanted to and pretty much binged. Recently I made a homemade meal plan of 2000 calories and have felt great (still hungry though) because I'm not bloated. Now I think I need to eat unrestricted because I'm still having ED thoughts and fears like you wouldn't believe. I just binged today and plan on getting on track tomorrow. Should I? Or should I eat unrestricted (it's all mostly mental hunger which causes me to eat thousands and thousands of calories even though I'm full)

Great you've done so much and set your own meal plan. However, suggest you contact your GP and get some support - fighting alone is really hard and it often helps to explore the issues around food - not just tackle the weight gain - you could also ring the ABC helpline - or visit their website - which is really good.


I do see my GP and counselor
