33. Is It Ever Safe To Lose Weight After Recovery From An Eating Disorder? with Dietitian Talia Cecchele

Today we’ve got Talia Cecchele back on the podcast and I couldn’t be more excited! I first had Talia on Episode 7 where we discussed gut health, food intolerances, and eating for eating disorder recovery so if you missed that episode scroll back down and have a listen after this.

Talia is a registered dietitian specialising in eating disorders, weight management and paediatrics currently living and working in the UK. Her mission is to help clients nourish with balance by removing the overwhelm and confusion around healthy eating and bringing things back to basics. Her holistic and personalised approach reflects my own ethos as we both believe there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

In this podcast Talia and I are tackling quite a tricky topic and answering the question “Is it ever safe to lose weight after an eating disorder?” It’s something that I get questioned on constantly which is why I wanted to bring in an expert.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Reasons why weight change may occur during an eating disorder and/or recovery from an eating disorder
  • Why is weight loss after an eating disorder such a tricky situation? Is it actually safe? Who for?
  • A dietitian’s approach to weight loss and how this differs from advice you see online
  • Plus a lengthy discussion about intuitive eating versus other nutrition strategies and how to figure out what approach is best for you.
