In this episode, Nicola and Florence meet with ED recovery coach and author Tabitha Farrar. Together they talk about:
- Tabitha's story of anorexia and her recovery, but also what happened to her menstrual cycles as she came out of energy deficit.
- Tabitha's unique views on anorexia as an evolved response to famine, and all the habitual behaviours (OCD-ED) drawn by the lack of available energy, and typically experienced by ED patients
- Why nutritional rehabilitation has to be accompanied by reducing exercise in order to sustainably recover, and why bingeing is a natural response in recovery
- The crucial role of brain rewiring and how to truly tackle the fear of weight gain to recover once and for all
