Nutrition for Eating Disorder Recovery
No matter what eating disorder you may be suffering with, no matter your age, weight, colour or gender, you deserve the freedom that comes with recovery.
Food is more than just fuel. We use food to celebrate, socialise, show love, explore and more. Life with an eating disorder distorts how a person views food. Food becomes scary, food becomes something that is used to control and communicate emotions, food becomes something that isolates and consumes thoughts.
Those impacted by disordered eating or nutritional deficiencies risk becoming less competitive in their sport, more prone to injury and risk permanent physical damage that, in some cases, can be life-threatening.
You are not defined by your past. It's time to abandon destructive behaviours and do something that will grant you the full and happy life you deserve.
Eating Disorder Recovery for Athletes
Athletes are two to three times more likely to develop an eating disorder than the average person. Those impacted by disordered eating or nutritional deficiencies risk becoming less competitive in sport, more prone to injury and risk permanent physical damage that, in some cases, can be life-threatening.
My bespoke programme enables equips athletes with the specific mental and nutritional skills to achieve their full athletic potential and sustain a positive mindset.
Optimum nutrition helps to prevent illness and reduces the risk of injury. Whether you’re a recreational or competitive athlete, your diet can help you make the most out of your training. Kaysha's Sports Nutrition action plan gives nutritional guidance for event/match day, rest days, recovery and injury rehabilitation.
The decision to fight and get rid of an eating disorder can feel very push-pull. I can imagine there are a lot of what-ifs and questions spinning around. Days like this you feel strong enough to seek help. On other days, the “comfort” of the eating disorder feels more alluring.
In the short-term, it may seem that the eating disorder serves its purpose. In the long-term, it could make you feel isolated, powerless and fearful.
It may be almost hard to imagine, but with the right support, patience and consistency, recovery is possible.
