I was wondering how long it takes for your metabolism to return to normal after a person has started recovering from an eating disorder?? After the initial weight gain will my metabolism return to normal and I go back to the healthy weight I was at before I began the disordered eating?? I'm getting so frustrated, but I don\'t want to fall back into the disorder. It's so hard to keep focus and not fall back into that. Especially when I see my thighs and stomach getting larger and I feel like I can't do anything about it. I think I'm really messed up. haha
Don't worry! Your metabolism will improve soon. I used to detox for months and months, so I know how that can be. It takes time to get your metabolism running efficiently. You will be able to eat as you used to. It can take a few months, if you have been restricting your calories for a long time. My tip for you is to be active! Work out for an hour a day and you will not put a lot of weight on. Try to eat healthy, and smaller meals. Also, I would take a multivitamin or any other vitamins. They will speed up your metabolism, and you will be back to normal very soon. Good luck.
