Life as an Eating Disorder Dietitian
Food Fear Recovery
By Registered Nutritionist and Calgary Eating Disorder Dietitian Richelle Tabelon on our team who specializes in nutrition support for problematic emotional eating and eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia
This picture makes me smile! It was sent to me by a client that is recovering from an eating disorder…she is rediscovering food ENJOYMENT and ate some dessert!
This is one of the exciting parts of my job. Fearing food is REAL for many people struggling with an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, ARFID (avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder) or binge eating disorder.
As an eating disorder dietitian, I know it can be really anxiety provoking for some people to break their set food rules and allow themselves to eat foods they used to enjoy. The noise and fear that they won’t be able to control themselves can be overwhelming. That’s why we always take small steps and if needed initially just explore what this might look like.
