In fact, many of these I share candidly in my fictional memoirs, Just Perfect and Red Ribbons, so check those out as well if you haven't already.

Everyone recovering from an eating disorder deals with digestive issues. Everyone. Your body suddenly has to deal with increased intakes after periods of starvation, or more consistent and uncompensated meals after weeks, months or years of binging and purging. And this makes recovery just that bit extra difficult. Hold on – don’t turn back just yet.

I’ve been in and out of therapy my entire life, struggling as I was bullied, fell deeply into a depression, and then developed an eating disorder that stayed with me for 7 years. Therapies never seemed to help me. That is, until I discovered hypnotherapy. And meditation. One visualization technique changed my life.

"Just have some pie/pizza/ice cream and it will be ok." Well, that's not really how it goes. Recovery takes time. That's why people rely on intuitive eating. But what exactly is intuitive eating, and how is it done?

Stop all exercise. You need to gain weight. Sounds familiar? Well, it is wrong!

Hospitalized first in Hungary in 2009, I slowly crawled back to the surface... until in 2013 a life-changing move again brought me to hospital, this time in Slovakia.

 

My weight did not budge and I went into treatment in Belgium. Over the course of all of this I tried out CBT, hypnotherapy, etc...

 

Check out this video and open your eyes to the options available for YOUR recovery.

In recovery, we learn how to deal with night sweats, weight gain, acne/skin issues, digestive distress, and so much more. Don't worry though -- we're all in the same boat, the discomfort is temporary, and there are ways to deal with it.

Do you find yourself gaining weight on tiny portions? Are you worried that your metabolism is irreversibly damaged? You are not alone! Today I talk about metabolism, starvation mode, set point theory, oedema, overshoot, and more!

Exercise can be a relief, a confidence-boost and a pleasure. It can also be a burden, a stress, and an addiction.

 

Whereas the latter used to apply to me (and to so many others struggling with an ED), the former is now true. What is exercise for you?
