Question Recovering from an ED....need some help in what is defined as "normal eating"

I know eating a healthy well-balanced diet is what is considered normal. But what about portions and does everything really need to be low-fat or fat-free?? I'm used to eating almost everything "fat-free" but recently I just switched to low-fat because I realize now my body needs it and I need to gain weight. I've just had this ED for so long now that I've forgotten what normal eating is really like. It seems everyone around me over eats or under eats so I really can't get a good idea from them. So for those of you that maintain a healthy weight and eat a well-balanced diet could you please give me an idea of how and what you eat or even an example of a normal days menu for you. I eat 5-6 times a day because I'm trying to boost my metabolism back to normal. So I eat 3 meals and 2-3 snacks. I just need to get a better view of normal healthy eating. Please help!
