Event Restriction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about what she refers to as "event restriction." 

Event restriction is when you anticipate eating more or resting at an event or time in the future, and therefore try to create a "buffer" by restricting more or compensating more via exercise in preparation. 

Event restriction never works. Most people find that is actually makes eating and resting harder, so ironically you struggle even more when you actually get to the big day. Most commonly people event restriction in preparation for Christmas and the festive season.

Anorexia Recovery: Energy Deficit | Energy Debt | Target Weights | Weight vs State Restoration

00:0000:00

Just me in this podcast! Responding to questions that I get frequently around Anorexia recovery and weight restoration. How to know when you are really weight restored? Let me tell you it is not something that you can calculate via a math equation or estimate via looking on a height/weight chart. 

Weight restoration is a process of gaining weight until you are within a healthy weight range (I recommend a BMI of 22 at least) and continuing to eat without restriction until you no longer fear further weight gain. This podcast fully explains my position on that weight restoration, target weights, and weight versus mental state restoration.
