129. Biggest Mistakes You’re Making in HA Recovery

This week on the podcast Lucy McConnell and I are talking about the biggest mistakes and road blocks people face in hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The impact of standing and walking vs. structured exercise on your energy expenditure
  • Throwing the towel in too early (and how long HA recovery can actually take)
  • The problem with getting stuck on being a certain weight or BMI and not letting yourself go above this
  • Being super healthy in recovery and the implications on that for achieving total food freedom
  • Only doing “just enough” when it comes to lifestyle changes
  • High volume foods and the problems they can cause on your GI tract and recovery
  • Exercise as your only stress management tool
  • Leaving body checking and avoidance behaviours unchecked
  • Numbing out instead of working through emotions
