Hello all,
I have a problem with restriction but because its not severe (1500-1800 cal) a day, no one has ever taken me seriously. I am gaining weight even though I keep eating less everyday. I tried to start eating 3000 cal a day so I can recover and let my body heal; I was only 3 days in and I had a massive body freak-out where I threw up and had the chills and extreme fatigue. Because of this, my ED is even WORSE than when I started...I feel so helpless and I have been having awful thoughts.
I feel silly talking about this but I just need some encouragement.
Much love XOXO

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Weight changes don't happen in a week. Modifying diet lifestyle, regular exercise and atkin and dash diet plans help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
