CONSTANTLY eating in anorexia recovery?
Do you constantly feel like eating? Does it seem impossible to feel satisfied? If so, you’re not alone.
When I started experiencing extreme hunger, it felt as if the floodgates to hungerland had opened. From the moment I woke up to the moment my head hit the pillow at night, all I wanted to do was EAT.
Because I had spent years of my life controlling my every bite, having my body take complete control over my intake sent me into an identity crisis. Who was I without the identity of a diet? Who was I without my identity of being “healthy”? But perhaps most importantly, who would I become if I gave myself unconditional permission to eat and rest?
Along with wanting nothing else but food, food, and more food, extreme hunger triggered a strong aversion to exercise. Whereas I felt I was able to somewhat “balance” my increased intake through extra exercise before, it wasn’t gonna happen this time around. The resistance to exercise was almost as strong as the tug towards food, making my historical food-exercise equation one that I feared could no longer be solved.
However, there was one solution…
Giving myself permission.
Sounds simple, but the answers to the most complex problems often are. The constant mental battle of wanting to eat – but telling myself I shouldn’t – and wanting to rest – but telling myself I shouldn’t – was a battle that didn’t really exist. The only force that made it seem real was my own mind.
Your extreme hunger is not a problem that needs to be solved. In actuality, honoring your extreme hunger is the solution to healing.
But what do you do when you’re afraid of honoring your extreme hunger? How do you know where to start? The first step is giving yourself permission to choose you – your health, your happiness, and your life.
