How are you doing in this time of uncertainty during the Corona Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic? If you’re having a hard time with food and body image or with your eating disorder recovery, you are most definitely not alone.
Beginning today, 3/16/20, I will be shifting all of my 1:1 nutrition counseling services at my Centerport office to virtual in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Sessions will be conducted via HIPAA compliant video conferencing or telephone without video.
Your eating disorder is valid even if you don’t have dramatic before and after pictures.
Your eating disorder is valid even if you didn’t lose weight.
Your eating disorder is valid even if no one noticed you were struggling.
Your eating disorder is valid if you recovered into a fat body.
If you feel like you failed eating disorder treatment, but know that what actually failed you was a treatment program designed fundamentally for a young, well off, white, able bodied, thin woman, I see you.
One of the misconceptions about anti-diet dietitians is that we dislike all diets and all people who diet. This, of course is just not true. Being anti-diet is being anti- diet culture and anti- oppression of people who feel the only way they can be accepted in society is to punish their bodies endlessly with restrictive diets.
Have you ever been planning out your next meal while you’re in the middle of a current one?
Have you ever had judgments about that? “Why am I always thinking about food?” “Am I addicted to food?” “Is there something wrong with me?”
