‪Errr a bit ironic that a @guardian article on IF/ rebranding of eating disorders would permit what is surely a dangerous misquote “studies have shown that “fasting is as good as chemotherapy” in treating cancer and there is growing evidence that fasting can help with longevity by lowering markers of aging eg cholesterol & BP.” . . . . #rdchat‬ #diet #dietitian #dietitians #dietician #dieticians #nutrition #nutritionist #nutritionists #fasting #fast #intermittentfasting #cancer #chemo #chemotherapy #oncology #oncologist #oncologists #extremefasting #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorders

In case you were wondering, strong is the new beautiful. 💪 😘 . I may have gained close to 40 lbs by now, but I can still squat 180 thanks to @morganmaule (down from 220 before getting pregnant) and keep up in a yoga class with all the non-pregnant goers there. 🧘‍♀️ . It astounds me what the human body is capable of (male and female but especially female right now!) If we treat our bodies with respect, move them physically and make them work, they will respect us back. . Taking care of ourselves is not selfish. It’s needed to be able to take care of others around us and bring our fullest potential to this world. 🌎 . What are the ways that you take care of yourself physically? 👇 . . . . . #bodylove #selflove #bingeeating #bodywisdom #disorderedeating #eatingdisorders #mindfuleating #emotionaleating #personaldevelopment #inspirational #motivational #selfacceptance #mindbodysoul #selfcare #selfhelp #emotionalcoaching #energeticcoaching #wellnesscoaching #businessbuilding #entrepreneurship #personalgrowth #motherhood #motherhoodrising #mompreneur #motherhoodthroughig #babybump #babyonboard #mamatobe #thatsdarling #laboranddelivery

Yeme bozuklukları hamilelik döneminde de şaşırtıcı şekilde yaygın. Norveç Halk Sağlığı Enstitüsü'ndeki araştırmacılar, uzun vadeli, büyük ölçekli "Norveç Anne ve Çocuk Kohortu Çalışması" kapsamında 77.000'den fazla gebe kadında yeme bozukluğu oranlarını incelediler. Çalışma sonucunda 20 gebe kadından 1'inin yeme bozukluğu yaşadığı tespit edildi. Gebelik döneminin duygusal iniş çıkışları, kilo alma endişesi ve erken yaşta gebeliğin yeme bozukluklarına yol açabileceği tespit edildi.

Check your perfectionism. It’s ok to be where you are in your life at this moment. Acknowledge those feelings and the thoughts that come behind them. Know that you’re not alone.

#eatingdisorders most commonly develop during the adolescent years but have been documented in children as young as seven. If you are concerned that your child is struggling with #eating speak to your #pediatrician.

Many of you know, my approach is a non-diet, non-weight focused approach to health. There is SOOO much power in this. Today, I am dropping a link to an article where Glenn Gaesser (author of "Big Fat Lies" and ASU professor of exercise science) answers some common and tough questions. * * * Our body kindness task today is to consider how you can focus on health without focusing on changing your weight. Drop some comments, questions and feedback about the article.

LOL + UGH = do you remember when Kimmy K sold those awful lollipop appetite suppressants?? UGH you know what gets rid of hunger better than that....actual food. Reminder you have to eat to survive. Not a good idea to listen to someone that tells you to starve. Also do you really think she uses that? LOL no hate to her just wished she cared about her fans more who you usually young and impressionable. #beyoutiful #loveyourself #selfesteem #beauty #quote #mentalhealth #recovery #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #bedrecovery #selfcare #projecthealnj #projectheal #projecthealeasternnj #edrecovery #edwarrior #bodylove #bodydiversity #bodypositivity #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorders

Throwback to April last year after completing the @brightonmarathonweekend for @mind which I’m doing again in a few weeks time. . In all honesty I’ve come very close to sacking the whole thing off this year, after spending most of the last year isolated, comfort eating, gaining weight, inactive, often suicidal and in a bad depressive state which I only now feel is starting to lift. . The irony is I fundraised for two mental health charities but haven’t been getting any of the benefits of their services myself. I haven’t been well enough to access them, nor have I wanted to due to previous bad experiences with some NHS MH services. You’ve got to be well enough and willing to seek out help and the quality of care can vary dramatically. . When this photo was taken I was in the best shape I’ve ever been, but I’ve found it difficult to maintain this since. In school, in previous workplaces and even by so called ‘friends’ I’ve been bullied for being overweight and those things stay with you forever. Being called a “fat shit” everyday at school has a lasting negative impact on your confidence and self esteem. . There’s a lot more discussion and awareness about body image, eating disorders and body positivity at the moment. I just wanted to highlight that these things affect men too although it’s less talked about. . I’ve come to realise that you have to accept things the way they are now, but that doesn’t mean things won’t be able to improve in time and it’s good to set goals and challenge yourself. But equally not beat yourself up if you don’t achieve those goals straight away. Sometimes it takes a lot of time to get to where you want to be. I’m not there yet but I’m still trying. . At the moment I’ve been going out of my comfort zone in an effort to make more friends and start building up a stronger support network. I’d rather have a smaller group of good friends in real life than I would thousands of imaginary ones online. . I’m not setting any time goals for Brighton Marathon this year, if I can complete it again that will be more than enough for me. . . . #brightonmarathon #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #bodypositive #bodyimage #bullying #eatingdisorders

Although it feels like it’s been the longest week and although I always feel this way (^) on a Thursday.. this week actually hasn’t been too bad👍🏻. I have felt more positive about things and I’m not sure why?🤔 But whatever it is I don’t mind because it’s better than being anxious!🙃 Let’s hope it carries on into next week for my 5 day week 🙏🏻 * I guess it just shows that life has its ups and downs and uncomfortable feelings and situations are temporary in the roller coaster of life🎢 * Happy #fridayeve!🎉 _____________________________________ #hsp #highlysensitiveperson #sensitivity #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #mentalillness #selfcare #orchidchild #orchidsofinstagram #hspofinstagram #edrecovery #anorexiarecovery #recovery #quotes #warriors #endthestigma #eatingdisorders #journeytoselflove #dailypost #bodyimage #introvert #workproblems #workanxiety #thursday

Literally microwave raw broccoli with a spoon of water for about 2 mins, softens it perfectly to then be sizzled with garlic or whatever spices you want 🤙🏻 .

Meeeee!!!! Who enjoyed their night at the BRITS AFTERPARTY??? MEEEEE!!!! Honestly guys, it was EPIC! I still sat here now in complete shock over the fact we were there! Like central London, celebrities, paparazzi, WHAT EVEN?!?! I can’t wait for you to see the photos!!!! I don’t even care; we looked AMAZING!!!!! - - These memories are just something else - completely out of this world! Next to nothing experiences! It’s crazy what I’ve seen just by showing anorexia that I’m getting my life back! Just by stepping up to the challenge of beating this illness; I have seen more than I could ever have dreamed of!🙊🙊🙊 I am soaring! Blow my own trumpet and everything but I am damn proud of myself and I’m not afraid to admit that! Last night I did something mega too! I got up; in the middle of everyone; on a platformed podium and danced completely freestyle! Like what the actual heck?! Ask me to have done that a few months ago and I would have died😱🤣! I say it alllll the time but being with Supreme has saved my life; forever and always so grateful! Small gig; big gig; I’m taken away by them all!

God morgon alla fantastiska kämpar! Så var det torsdag idag, helg imorgon.😍💃🏼 Del av #frukost idag fick bli fralla med kaffe på preem. Mamma och jag fick äta frukost på "språng" idag. Packade med mig min vanliga yoghurt med tillbehör. Tog inte med mackorna dock. Var tillslut ärlig och berättade det för mamma. Så hon köpte en fralla till henne (+äggröra) och en till mig. Åt upp den trots mycket ångest. Kändes som alldeles för mycket. Men jag lät inte äs "komma undan".💪🏻💪🏻 Ska även träffa dietisten + min behandlare senare idag. Är nervös, samtidigt känns det skönt att göra ett matschema som jag kan lita på och känna mig bekväm med.😪 ♡ ♡ ♡ #love #anorexia #anorexi #anorexianervosa #fuckanorexia #anorexianervosarecovery  #anorexiafighter #anorexiawarrior #edfighter #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorder #recovery #fighter #eatingdisorderecovery #ätstörningar #ätstörningsrecovery #ätstörning #food #fdoe #mat #torsdag #breakfast #preem #mellanmål #utmaning #staystrong #eatittobeatit #slutashameaäs #fuckätstörningar

20.02. ☀️ Breakfast - apple cinnamon oatmeal topped with peanut butter 🍴 Lunch - rice with broccoli and brussel sprouts 🍊 Snack - an orange 🌙 Dinner - curried lentil soup 🍊 Snack - another orange ~ 1394 calories I haven't weighed myself in two weeks, which is causing me some anxiety but I think I'll stay off the scale for a while. I'm feeling quite comfortable in my own skin right now 😊 - the recipe for the curried lentil soup I found on @frommybowl's blog.

Isa's FAVOURITES 🍪🍪 . I've decided it would be nice to do a series where every now and then I share some of my favourite food products or foodie finds.😋 . I'm continually inspired by so many innovative creations from fancy flavours to local delicacies and things I just used as part of my every day.👍🏼 . Kicking it off are these epic cookies from @marksandspencer. They are cook from frozen so super easy to whack in the oven and they come out all melty and chewy and delicious.🙌🏽 . These posts are not about advocating a way of eating or sharing what I eat in day, they are just spontaneous finds I feel like may be worth a share.🤗 . So why is a student nutritionist sharing cookies? Well, contrary to popular opinion nutrition is not black or white. If you ate cookies all day every day you probs wouldn’t feel that good but let’s be real, the same goes for broccoli. You have permission to eat cookies because they taste good and as part of a broader diet that includes plenty of food groups a cookie is not the be all and end all!👍🏼 . #allfoodsfit #cookies #cookiemonster

It's okay, don't cry❤️ It hasn't happened to me either since like 2nd grade. But it's okay to dream and look back at the good ol' days *strained smile* Make Sleep Great Again isn't a very good acronym, but fr???

Dreaming of hot days and blunts 🍑 mamas gotta get back to her gym grind ya feel me. Honestly WEED HAS SAVED MY LIFE. It’s brought me spirituality and relief. It’s made my Eating Disorder something I can recover from instead of just navigate life around. I’m so sorry so many have such a poor view of this beautiful, healing flower that’s brought relief and strength into my life. Here’s to exploring and opening up more about my personal journey. • • • #funfact this #throwbackthursday pic was taken in Vegas for my Anniversary with my partner. I was my far in the best shape of my life and lifting heavy AF. Weed was making DOMS a thing of the past! My eating disorder was at bay, I was able to put on weight and eat freely for the first time. This trip triggered a server #binge that lasted 3 months. It took a SEVERE relapse due to the hospitalization of my partner to finally break the binge and sent me deeper into a state of #anorexia which is not what I typically experience. I’m finally back on my period now. My relapse has finally let up enough to start eating full meals again! It’s very hard physically on your body when you damage it through #eatingdisorders and it’s caused a lot of health problems. This photo is a reminder of his strong I am despite that and that relief from natural sources is possible 💫🧡🌱

So it took me less then a month to finish watching nine seasons of Adventure time... 😏😂 and since I don’t have season ten yet I’m be starting Spongebob series.

“Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” - Michael Jordan As children we run around thinking we are invincible, nothing can stop us. Somewhere along they way we become frailer. Illnesses like addiction and eating disorders slowly disintegrate our inherent ability to overcome and we find ourselves rather turning back than challenging the obstacles in our way. Imani treatment centre works with each client individually to figure out what the obstacles in their lives are and provides the client with tools to once again become invincible.

Here's a little Transformation: Face Edition 👩❤ It might not a huge transformation, but the smile on the right is less forced and she's a lot happier and confident than the girl on the left. ❤ The transformation isn't always physical. The journey isn't just about how you look or feel, it's also about gaining confidence and self-love that will carry on for a lifetime. Today I celebrate the girl on the right and all the positive changes she has made to get that smile on her face. ❤❤

In my next blog post I talk about my eating disorder. It’s been a few days in the making as I’ve actually found it quite a difficult topic to write about, for a few reasons. It’s the topic I least discuss openly in my every day, it’s the topic that gets asked about the least, and it’s an issue I don’t acknowledge with myself nearly enough as I should, it’s always a shadow behind everything else that goes on in my life. But it sometimes makes me feel the most alone and ashame. It’s harder to talk about eating disorders than depression or suicide attempts because I find it’s the least anyone can relate to or understand. As I type i find myself understanding so little of it myself or how my mind processes my decisions around it. But I’m giving it a red hot crack. I’ve typed in my room at my desk, on the couch, at the kitchen table and even in the car. So now I try the balcony, to see if I can find some comfortable flow and peaceful mind set amongst the beauty of the outdoors. Those shiraz vines in the background have had a tough time, but they’re persisting and pushing through and I have no doubt the end result will be a special one.

✖️A big, but less than glorified, milestone ✖️ # #throwbackthursday to just two months ago before Christmas. It hasn't been easy, but massing is going well and I'm up 4.5kg since then. # Eating enough has always been my biggest struggle, as I'm coming from a background of having #eatingdisorders and major body dysmorphia. So this is a major milestone for me as I'm now sitting between 83-84kg constantly every morning. # #abs are still visible in poor lighting, which is what I use as a primary gauge when gaining mass. #calories are therefore going up again for the foreseeable future. Will adjust as time goes. # Nevertheless, I've never been this excited to get this deload over with and chase the next milestone of 90kg 👊 # Whatever your goal is - go GET IT 😘 # #physique #physiquecompetitor #diet #calories #food #nutritionist #bodybuilding #bodybuilders #bodybuilder #progress #goals #brisbane #beardedvillains @the_musclealchemist

This was previously posted on my old account, but it’s a message that needs to be told and heard. ❣️ I was talking to friends about how I love stretch marks on other people, but I don’t like them on myself. It made me start thinking how interesting it is that we celebrate the uniqueness of other people, but when it comes to ourselves, we have this idea that we need to be “flawless.” 🤷🏽‍♀️ The quote came to mind, “Treat yourself like you would treat a friend,” and I was like damn. I gotta be nicer to myself. I should be proud of these! My stretch marks on my hips used to be a big insecurity, but now I realize they represent my growth- mentally AND physically- from a dark place where I was forcing my body to be a size that was unnatural, to a place where I can finally start to allow myself to enjoy life.

Lasting change takes time. There might be a few hiccups along the way. Patience. 💕💕💕

• hi everyone! i had a meeting with my dietician tonight. she seriously helps me out so much and i am so grateful for her guidance. we are slowly starting to add more fear foods and food in general to my plan which is both exciting and scary. even after a super large lunch today, she told me i should eat. i totally took control and managed to eat 2 pieces of toast with yummy nutella and peanut butter, and granola! i know guilt is something i will continuously have to deal with but every step is making progress in ending this way of thinking. again, today is a beautiful day to recover 💛 #ed #edrecovery #edfam #edfamily #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorders #strongnotskinny #anorexianervosa #ana #anorexiarecovery #recovery #exercise #healthy #recoverywin #weightgain #recoverywarrior #breakfast #lunch #dinner #snack

Hey everyone! Okay so today overall was pretty freaking good! I ate with my dietician then went to my therapist and had a really good session. When I got home I washed my linen, and cleaned the house in my new fav slippers. (Swipe to see!!) then I reorganized my room again into the new things I bought from Michaels! And had a lot of fun creating sections in my drawers to keep everything where it should be!!! I’m listening to some new songs that are pretty good, I love music!!! I’m pretty anxious now about my dr appointment tomorrow because the week is up. I know I did really well but I’m so anxious it wasn’t good enough. My mom was like just don’t go in expecting the best so I got more nervous... ugh I finally did the dbt he since I was NOT interested! Filling it out messes with my ocd actually and I get so wrapped up in it, pretty ironic! Anyways! I’m getting yelled at that I need to go to sleep 🛏 😂, so that’s it for now I’ll keep you all updated!! Be well!! Xoxo! #edrecovery#edtreatment#anrecovery#antreatment#anorexia#eatingdisorders#fightinged#music#ocd#awareness#anxiety#neda#onestepatatime#strugglingwell#stayinthemomnet#mindfulness#progressidprogress

Healing and recovery have ups and downs and highs and lows. Don't let the people around you or social media fool you into thinking you are failing or falling behind, we are all on our own timeline. Relapses and set backs and bad days and rough patches are only a part of the journey. If it wasn't a struggle we would never get stronger and become the warriors we were meant to be. I hear "it gets better" a lot and maybe it's just the way I look at it but I feel like that just makes others (or me, at least) have this false hope that one day things won't be hard and I won't struggle anymore. My life has gotten better. I am married to the other half of my soul, my beautiful wife. I'm doing what I love for a living. My family is happy and in good health. I'm in such a better place than I used to be. But I still fight with my brain and I still stumble at times and I still go through shit, but over the years it has gotten easier. My illness is still there but slowly I am becoming stronger than I ever thought I could. And you can too. Life gets better and it gets easier to cope with your illness. Never give up on your healing. #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #ocd #bpd #bipolar #eatingdisorders #recovery #healing

So here’s a #tbt - I know I’ve said a few times I had #bodyimage and #bodyissues - when I finished high school I had was 128kgs. Now I’m relatively tall (6’3”) so I can carry weight well. Now I’m part due to my teenage #depression around my #sexuality and my parents divorce - I got fat... no ifs or buts about it. When I moved out of home I started losing weight and acquired a few #eatingdisorders - namely #aneroxia and #bulimia (yes men get eating disorders too). Eventually I managed to reach an equilibrium in relation to food and exercise, as I have detailed previously it’s an ongoing battle for me. #gayman #throwbackthursday #instagay

the funny thing is that i have 3 dogs actually. and those were my legs in august and they’re bigger now 😭😭 i need to get a grip. — i was so set on fasting today and.... i fucking ate at a mongolian buffet for lunch, then had dominoes pizza for dinner. i’ve prob consumed 2000+ calories with those two meals alone. i feel disgusting and fatter than usual. i really wish i would have purged my dinner. — i really hate this. i need to do a 3 day water fast/cleanse to detox my body, starting tomorrow. and i can’t weigh myself bc i don’t have a scale at home so i have to use the one at work, so my weight will be updated sunday at the latest! (i work at a fast food restaurant and my hours aren’t consistent 🤷🏾‍♀️) — #bulimia #anorexia #eatingdisorder #binge #purge #bingeandpurge #ed #skinny #thin #small #ednos #eatingdisorders #depressed #depression #mentallillness #edmemes #eatingdisorders #eds #eatingdisordermemes #body #bulimianervosa #anorexianervosa #ana #edstruggles #edfam #binging #purging #bingepurge #bodydysmorphia #bingeeating #ednosmemes

Today was bittersweet as I said goodbye to my home for the last month and a half. Whether I see it or not, the woman who walked in here and the woman who walked out are not the same person. I have learned that I still have a lot to learn when it comes to self love and self compassion. The road to recovery is long, but I’ll get there. I try to tell myself that I’ve already been through the worst day of my life and there have been so many days where it felt like my world was ending and it continued moving the next day. Eating Disorders are tough, but so am I, and I think I’m finally getting the upper hand. 💪🏻 . . . #ed #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexia #anorexic #anorexiarecovery #ana #anorexianervosa #recovery #nedic #neda #maternalmentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealth #eatingdisorders #ppd #healthymom #postpartumdepression #ppa #postpartumanxiety #mom #instamom #momlife #mother #momwin

I went through a weird phase as a kid where I would always tilt my head in photos. I’m not sure if I thought it made me look cute or what, but there is about a THREE-YEAR-PERIOD where I did this. Whyyyyyyy? Did anyone else do this??? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Anyway, random photo, but I have some news! I’ve been sitting on it a while because I needed to process it all a little but I’ve been appointed to the Academy of Eating Disorders’ Advisory Committee for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion to the Board. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It’s a big deal (esp. for a baby researcher like me) because the Academy for Eating Disorders is a (big) global professional association committed to leadership in eating disorders research, education, treatment, and prevention. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The committee is new this year and has been established to help the academy and the field of eating disorders move forward to be more diverse, more equitable and more inclusive. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ There is a clear need to better centre social justice in the field of eating disorders. We know eating disorders do not discriminate by gender, race, age, sexuality, class, or size etc. Yet, we know treatment does. The evidence is clear that if you are not a cisgender, white, young, affluent, thin women, you are less likely to receive treatment. The stats are truly staggering. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ There is a LOT of work to be done and I know this isn’t easy straightforward work, but I am honoured to serve on this committee for the next three years and lend my voice to something I really care about. #eatingdisorders #equity ⠀⠀ [image: old family photo of me and a cousin in white dresses by a fountain where I’m doing a weird headtilt pose]

BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER Body Dysmorphic disorder is characterised by an preoccupation with one or more perceived defects or flaws in appearance that are not observable or appear slight to others (DSM V). It is considered to be a form of obsessive compulsive disorder. BDD can be differentiated from the distorted body image which is a defining feature of eating disorders, in that distorted body image involves a preoccupation with overall body mass, whereas BDD involves focusing on a specific part or feature. The typical age of onset of BDD is ages 12-13, with an average onset of 16-17. Some symptoms include: Excessive self-consciousness Experience persistent and intrusive thoughts about the imagined flaw  Feeling defined by their flaw. Are fearful of being seen as flawed Frequent checking of appearance Attempting to camouflage or alter the perceived defect Avoidance of public or social situations or triggers that increase distress. They may at times be housebound Needless cosmetic and dermatological treatments. Depression Isolation BDD is chronic, but responds favorably to treatment with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy found to be an effective and evidence based method of treatment. CBT challenges irrational beliefs & perceptions regarding the body feature.
