cant stop gaining weight after anorexia!!!!
Help. I am recovering from anorexia. I am now normal weight. I don't eat hardly anything still... to be honest. all I eat is salad, no dressing, and (it may sound weird) but cucumbers with ketchup. But, I am still gaining weight... why wont it stop? When I was younger, and before ED. I could eat anything I wanted and never gained weight. However, I was cheering, and playing soccer and all, is that why I am still gaining because I am not doing that anymore or not? I am so scared. I want to be able to eat food, but I am so scared that if I am gaining weight still eating so little if I really eat normal... what will happen. PLEASE help. I am sorry for bothering anyone, but dont know where else to turn.. :(

Continue eating healthy. Avoid processed foods that are "non-whole" and are filled with high calorie sugars.

In addition, try an exercise program, as simple as walking...or hiking...or try running...or working out at a gym. Whatever exercise that you do, stick with it for life...and find something that you enjoy. :)

your body has been starved, so your metabolism has slowed dramatically, the little food your having, your body is clinging to and getting every ounce of nutrition out of it as it doesn't know when it'll be starved again, it will stop, and your weight will stabilise, so don't worry

because you stopped eating, when you re start you body uses it all for weight just incase you start again. but once your boby finds you arent going to stop again it will stop
