140. The 10 Hard Truths That Will Help Your ED or HA Recovery

Sometimes tough love is the best kind of love, especially when it comes to your recovery journey. While self-compassion is essential, these hard truths might hit home for you and help you get out of your own way so you can truly reach full recovery.

In this podcast we discuss:

  • 10 hard truths about recovery
  • Are you doing just enough or what is optimal for your recovery
  • Weight gain as a necessity and how to overcome the fear of restoring your weight in order to restore your health
  • How high intensity exercise can’t simply be cancelled out by eating more in recovery
  • Accepting that there are no short cuts in recovery 
  • Making the big changes that will propel your recovery instead of focusing on tiny little ones
  • Searching for the answers you want instead of accepting the truth about what you need to change to recover
  • The problem with only wanting to gain weight as muscle mass in recovery
  • Sneaky compensation such as reducing your training intensity or volume but then increasing walking
  • Why stress management is so important to regaining your period
  • Body image work and why it’s so critical to recovery maintenance
