One of the hardest parts of recovery for me was going to see a dietician, letting my guard down and being truthful. I loved when Kate talked about building a rapport with her patients. SO IMPORTANT. The hardest part is giving the control of what you eat over to someone elses care and trusting that they know what is best. And yes at first the dietician is often feared and hated because the eating disorder is finally out in the open! SO GOOD THANK YOU! Reply MyRosie2007 says: September 3, 2012 at 8:14 pm Is binge eating disorder REALLY taken seriously? or is the prejudice for fat people impossible for people to consider binging without purging a true eating disorder? I am embarrassed to tell a dietitian about my binging because I think I won't be taken seriously. "Oh, she is just a glutton who can stop eating anytime she wants!" and the thought of telling a dietitian things about my eating that i've only told a therapist is hard and somewhat humiliating.

This video deffo helped abit with what to expect and made is abit less nervous:) xxx Reply gabi85colman says: September 3, 2012 at 10:59 pm hahahahaha that was so me!! i used to scream at my dietitian especially after i had a spell in hosp and then she put my food up to where i was eating like every half an hour. One time I thought i was being so clever making her eat chocolate with me.. karma is sooo gunna bite me in the butt when i end up with a patient just like me ha ha. great video as always x Reply MyRosie2007 says: September 4, 2012 at 1:05 am Kati, thank you for reassuring me. I feel embarrassed when I talk about this, so I keep it to myself…except when talking to my therapist. You are really helping. xxoo Reply Cassie Jennison says: September 4, 2012 at 3:58 am Hi Kate & Kati, quick question – a lot of my recovery has focused on intuitive eating, and responding to the body's authentic hunger signals. Do you think it's possible to fit a nutritionist into this blueprint for recovery? It seems that having a kind of regimented meal plan would work counteractively with intuitive eating. Can the two work together? Reply parrotlady84 says: September 6, 2012 at 1:12 am when i got sick with the other stuff, and stopped eating, i had to see a dietitian.. i had to eat every half hour and a certain amount. i started measuring and counting and became obsessed and now its a problem. i havent seen my dietitian in about 2 months, do you think it would be beneficial to go back? if so, how do i help her help me without me obsessing? i find it so triggering, like i had to think about food all the time….i wonder if going back would cause more harm than good? Reply dixielott says: October 2, 2012 at 8:59 pm Do you get a meal plan in your first appointment because I'm dying to get one and I really want one…. ?? Reply dani G says: November 6, 2012 at 1:49 am this video helped ease my mind so much. ive had an eating disorder for years but have been keeping it a secret untill 2 days ago when my family found out and i have my first appointment regarding this tomarrow with my GP then an appointment at an eating disorder clinic the next day and i am terrified. thank you! Reply lu922 says: February 7, 2013 at 4:59 pm I have my first appointment with and ed team in 2 hours… This is so hard. I can't stop thinking about cancelling it. Maybe I'm not ready for recovery and I shouldn't be wasting their time.. Reply singinwithceline says: April 22, 2013 at 3:53 am Hi Kate & Kati, I know this video is kind of old. But I just had my 1st appointment with a dietician last week. She triggered me a lot. She seemed to really emphasis weight loss and told me to give up pop & juice. She told me calorie amounts AFTER I asked her not to. She only focused on one of my 5 behaviors. I didn't feel like she listened. Today is the first day since seeing her that I didn't restrict. What do I do? Reply Sean Egglestone says: May 2, 2013 at 4:40 am you went to chico state? Reply Kayla M Loomis says: February 12, 2014 at 5:54 am Hi! I realize this video is old, but I was hoping to get a question answered about it! I am a dietetics student and I'm very interested in working the field of eating disorders. There was a point towards the end of the video where Kate talks about clients asking what you know about nutrition and what you eat or do and why, and she talks about how that is just the eating disorder and you turn it back onto them. How do you go about refocusing onto them at that point in a gentle way that is effective? Thank you!
