It's Friday, people! 🙌
Breakfast was coconut oats with little bit of vanilla protein powder, and topped w/ nana, kiwi, cc and butter 🍌👌.
I want to talk to you about hunger.
First of all, your #minniemaud minimums are just that: minimums, meaning you are expected to eat more. In the beginning of #edrecovery many wonder should they eat more, and the answer is YES!!! But if the extreme hunger hits you, you no longer wonder should you eat, because your body makes you eat. Not everyone gets EH, tho, but many do 🍟🍔.
If you wake up in the night and think of food... EAT! Go and grab something to eat, because even if you're asleep, your body never stops repairing all the damages starvation has caused.
The more you eat the better, so you do not need to think "is it okay or should I", because it IS OKAY and you SHOULD!
Because there is no such thing as too much food in recovery, and neither is too fast weight gain 🖐
You can not eat too much in recovery.
You can not gain too much weight in recovery.
You can not gain too fast in recovery.
You can eat too little, eat too clean, eat too little carbs and too little fats in recovery,
and you can gain too little and too slowly 🙅
You cannot control your body, because you will lose that battle. We are not as wise as our bodies are, and thank god! Otherwise human being wouldn't have survived alive!
The best solution is to radically accept everything that comes with recovery: weight gain, increased hunger, water retention, night sweats etc.
The more you reconnect with your body and radically accept all the aspects, the easier it is to navigate thru this. It will never be easy, but it becomes easier 🌼
Your job now is to EAT!
Eat, and explore new foods.
Eat, and find new fave foods.
Eat, and rest.
Eat, and allow your body to heal and become strong again ✨
Wishing you all a lovely Friday! 💗
