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.

Challenging intake guidelines — Dr Graham Redgrave

00:0000:00

Tabitha Farrar talks to Dr Graham Redgrave about the research done at Johns Hopkins looking into higher weights and a faster rate of refeeding patients with Anorexia in an inpatient hospital setting. The conversation includes:

  • Refeeding intakes, traditional expectations versus new developements
  • Problems with low target weights
  • Relapse prevention programs
  • Lower rate of relaspe for patients who reach higher BMIs in treatment
  • The case for higher caloric intakes once the risk of refeeding syndrome is past
  • What refeeding syndrome is, and research around this
  • How and when treatment fails patients. 
  • Why we need to challenge the current guidelines pertraining to refeeding intakes
