Hunger in Anorexia Recovery

00:0000:00

Hunger is a fascinating and crucial topic in Anorexia recovery. Navigating hunger can be difficult when hunger signals are either nonexistent, sporadic, or unrelenting.

At times of under-nutrition, most people with restrictive eating disorders such as Anorexia experience a vast reduction in hunger cues — this is a very normal result of the body moving into starvation mode. When we start to eat in recovery, hunger signals can be all over the place! In this podcast, Tabitha Farrar gives some insight into hunger based on her own experience and also those of the people with whom she was worked.
