Eating Disorder Recovery

Podcast Epi # 44 "Tips for Eating Disorder Recovery"

Guest Host: Kaleigh Kessler, RD, LD



Hi my name is Kaleigh and I’m a dietitian specializing in eating disorder recovery because years ago I suffered with an eating disorder. Today I’m going to share tips with you that I learned during my own recovery. First, remember that you must forgive yourself for any damage you’ve done to your body. Know that you are worthy of life and love. Food is food. Food has an appropriate place in your life because eating is a part of your day. However, it is not the center of your day. Separate your life from the food you eat. Base your health on how you feel, not on how you look. Do not feel guilty for eating what you want, knowing that no food is inherently good or bad. When you are craving salty foods such as chips, your body may be low on sodium so don’t feel bad for eating them. Know that no one food is off limits and you can eat what you want without a need for compensation. Just because you had a piece of cake last night does not mean you cannot have a cookie today. Do not base your morality on the foods you eat, or how often you exercise. You are not good for eating a salad, just like you are not bad for eating pizza. Lastly, choose recovery every single day. Actively engage in recovery by always saying no to your eating disorder voices, and saying yes to the exact opposite of what your eating disorder is telling you.  This has been beyond the byte with RecoveryRD, Kaleigh.
