Just because you ate a lot yesterday doesn’t mean you have to starve yourself today.

Anonymous asked: What does extreme hunger look like?

composing-recovery:

ed-bites:

Extreme hunger can happen to people with restrictive eating disorders… Extreme hunger is different for everyone but it is being constantly hungry where you can eat and eat and eat but not get full (people usually mistake this with bingeing) some people eat 5000-10000 calories, it can happen at any point in recovery and it is the best to respond to it!

I had days where I would eat and eat and eat and would just be hungry 5 minutes later! It’s normal, it’s not a binge! Hope this helped?!

I can vouch for this. It can be triggering , but you have nothing to fear
