103. How to deal with weight gain and body changes in HA and ED recovery

This week I wanted to talk about dealing with weight gain and body changes in recovery because it’s probably one of the biggest struggles people have as they work towards food freedom, a better relationship with exercise and/or getting their period back.

In this episode I discuss:

  • The main fears associated with weight gain and body changes
  • Why letting go of control and sitting with discomfort can feel so hard
  • The analogy of your body as a house during recovery
  • The two most effective psychological therapies for managing body changes and the fear of weight gain
  • Why you can’t think your way out of recovery
  • The most effective tools for sitting with uncomfortable feelings during hypothalamic amenorrhea or eating disorder recovery
