I want a meal plan on my first appointment… Reply Alexis Hammond says: October 4, 2012 at 6:32 pm could you do a video or two on self harm and why do i intentionally trigger my self and try to make my depressive modes last longer Reply hyladams says: October 4, 2012 at 8:30 pm I think a lot of dieticians should be more willing to do vegan plans. As someone who was vegan before her ED developed, part of the reason I opted out of treatment is because they accredited my veganism to my ED and they are two TOTALLY separate things. I couldn't breach my morals and ethics or force myself to gain weight while exploiting animals, it's against my legitimate beliefs. I still can't find a dietician willing to work with vegan (continued) Reply hyladams says: October 4, 2012 at 8:32 pm substitutes even though they are in no way void of calories, fat, or general nutrition. It doesn't make sense to me, but naturally I'm still struggling and don't even know how to go about setting up a plan for myself :/ Reply Caitlin B says: October 4, 2012 at 8:53 pm If you're seeing a dietitian outside of a treatment center, will they still make you eat fear foods? Reply yusmiffins says: October 5, 2012 at 1:19 am I read somewhere that recovery diets go up to 3000 calories or higher…is this true? I thought a normal amount of calories was 1500-2000 Reply Caitlin B says: October 5, 2012 at 2:41 am Ugh. I don't think I can ever do it though. It's just too hard. Reply DestinySomeone says: October 5, 2012 at 4:59 am went 2 treatment this yr & ih8ed the dietitian & the hole eat 7 times aday scared the shit out of me. i left, wish they told me 2 stay *looking back* i wasn't underwight so they let me go. i remember when i was 14 and i couldn't leave idk if it was cuz of my age r my IBM *shrug* i have in my head that i'm not that bad off cuz i'm not underweight & i'm bulimic so i eat. i know its the ED that tells me that i'm not sick even though i am. my fam dosen't think i'm sick enough 2b in treatment either Reply Cassie Jennison says: October 13, 2012 at 10:09 am If you've been a long term vegetarian (from pre-eating disorder days) can this be incorporated into in-patient meal plans? Reply aTheoryofFlight says: December 11, 2012 at 8:41 am I've watched this video so many times because its so hard with meal plans for me in the past. I decided to try again and just started seeing a dietitian again. I feel so depressed and hopeless right now because when I saw the meal plan I felt like I should just give up before I even start. It looks impossible. Don't understand why it starts at so high of cals. I don't know how to do it on my own.I am afraid. I don't know how to eat like what it is saying. I feel like they don't understand… Reply aTheoryofFlight says: December 15, 2012 at 8:58 am Thanks Kati, for being so supportive. It makes sense in my head what I need to do….I just don't understand why I'm not doing it. I get mad at myself, but that makes it worse. They say compassion is better. I just wish I could do what they tell me to 🙁 Reply aTheoryofFlight says: December 24, 2012 at 6:56 am I go to a group now with meal support and I eat all my exchanges there…. but its only once a week. its really hard and it makes me feel sick but i do it cuz i know i need to. but on my own…. its just not happening. i feel like i need more :/ like if that group was more than once a week. its like the eating part of my brain is turned off… Reply Dissociation Diaries says: January 10, 2013 at 5:49 am Sounds terrifiying. Reply Caitlin B says: January 11, 2013 at 2:11 am I have a meal plan/guidelines, but I can't or don't want to follow it. I don't know what to do and I'm too afraid to tell my dietitian that I'm not following it. What if she gets upset or tells my parents? Reply ForeverFearlessxxx13 says: February 17, 2013 at 1:03 am does the way in which our tummys grumble/make noises have to do with our diet? my stomach makes such loud noises during class all the time and is so embarrasing… is there a reason for this?xx Reply ForeverFearlessxxx13 says: February 17, 2013 at 9:45 pm ok thanks that makes sense 🙂 if im not eating much and dont feel hungry .. is there anything i can take to stop the loud noises?xx Reply happinessismysadness says: February 20, 2013 at 5:05 am kati, is spit and chew a way of purdging? please help Reply ForeverFearlessxxx13 says: March 2, 2013 at 7:03 pm Is it true that if u drink alot of water … It will make u feel full?xx Reply Madeleine says: March 26, 2013 at 9:19 pm how do meal plans work for binge eating patients? Reply Ana B says: May 25, 2013 at 1:15 am Can you please do more videos with her? Reply SomeoneElse says: September 8, 2013 at 8:04 am How does one deal with upkeeping that meal plan once you leave? Or upkeeping a meal plan in general? I want to start eating healthier foods, but I've noticed that planning a diet change gets me back into making rules again. It becomes a bad thing if I eat something I didn't plan. I'm worried I'll start making more rules as well. Does this only matter if it gets to a harmful level physically? Reply Caley HOuse says: October 5, 2013 at 9:12 pm I just started a new meal plan and I feel as though it is SO MUCH FOOD. I ate breakfast and was uncomfortably full then I was still full when I was eating lunch and felt so uncomfortable afterwords and now I'm so stuffed. Is this normal? Reply Thor isthebest says: January 2, 2014 at 3:03 pm seriously if you were my therapist i would get better i think its a shame you can't come to Wales 🙁 as mine are not helping at all Reply Annie Medosch says: September 20, 2014 at 1:21 am She only has one eyebrow Reply learning languages with fun says: November 26, 2014 at 11:41 pm May I ask something?You say in the video that as an in-patient for example, people are required to eat whatever is served and a 100% of it….Lets say, an individual does not want (or "cant") eat much (or at all).I guess there will be some sort of forcement?? Doesnt sound as if there were a possibility to to baby-steps? How do they get people to eat right away whatever and all of what is served?? Thanks! Reply Rebecca J says: October 3, 2016 at 7:34 am What about people with lactose intolerance and IBS? How would an inpatient facility handle that crap? I can't eat cheese or digest anything with lactose or get really ill. I'll start throwing up and be unable to move. Reply Heather Combs says: October 19, 2016 at 5:41 am These are extremly helpful. Thank u for everything Reply dowopmissthing says: January 31, 2017 at 10:16 am hi kati, will I get a meal plan with binge eating disorder? how can a dietitian help me with binge eating disorder. love this style. x Reply Jocelyn Orenda says: March 9, 2017 at 5:09 pm What if your eating disorder developed due to extreme emetophobia (and had nothing to do with body image)? Reply Brittany Freeman says: May 8, 2017 at 12:13 am How do meal plans work for people with Binge Eating? Also, what if people have ethical/moral beliefs such as religion, veganism ect? Reply tina andersen says: November 17, 2017 at 4:25 am So. I had mY first meeting with my nutritionist. I left without a meal plan. Now what? I feel lost. Reply Lauren Johnson says: October 25, 2018 at 7:05 am I am so hesitant to go to treatment because I've been vegan for years for ethical reasons, and assuming the treatment center doesn't allow that. I also have celiac disease…so I'm not sure how they'd accommodate that. sigh. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
