8 meal planning tips I used for my recovery

meal plan for bulimia recoveryI will never forget the disbelief I experienced when I first discovered that a typical meal plan for bulimia recovery consisted of three meals and three snacks a day. Or the fear that came along with the realization that I needed to eat at least 2000 calories a day… every day.

Back then I honestly didn’t think it was possible (or normal) for a person to eat that much food!

Yet I was so desperate to stop being bulimic that I made some choices.

  • I chose to face my food fears.
  • I chose to be brave.
  • I chose to put my trust in people who really understood what they were talking about (thanks Richard and Ali).

To say it changed my life is an understatement. Now fully recovered I dedicate my life to helping others to find their freedom from bulimia via Bulimia Help’s Recovery Coaching Program.

You never chose to become bulimic, but today, right here, right now, you CAN choose recovery. You can choose to be brave, as I did back then.
