ok. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> so lately....my threads have gotten dodgier and dodgier and as someone who was pretty far away from being back in crazy ED land i was a lot happier but a few things have resulted in it sliding and that in turn has resulted in being sent back to a therapist and nutritionist. ugh.<br><br>
though i was given the choice about the latter because im only marginally at 'anorexic' weight (and it wasn't done in order to lose weight, just to be healthy. i know. warped. but whatever..)<br><br><br><br>
SO the thing is..i feel like i know all there is to know. heck, i spend enough time researching it, right?? i dont feel like nutritionists would help that much but more to the point i know a lot don't think the way i do. a lot wouldn't see artificial sweetners as a bad thing, a lot aren't fans of vegans, and so forth.<br><br>
im completely in two minds. i want to get my logic and my LIFE back, so im tempted to just be like...'ok <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> ill do whatever and just let it go' but maybe thats not right either.<br><br><br><br>
any opinions would be great but ill understand if i get none to this thread. not only have i been driving you people nuts over stupid things but its not really an interesting one. sorry<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/penguin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nigel:"> xo

I don't think you know all you need to know about nutrition. If you are on the verge of having an eating disorder then logically, you do not know what you need to know. If you can get a nutritionalist to side with you on the vegan issue that would be cool. Although everyone thinks the position paper of the American Ditetics Association means thay can be Vegan at will, with no supervision-- there are a ton of "Caviats"-- read further down. And also remember that the ADA is not the AMA. <a href="http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/adapaper.htm" target="_blank">http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/adapaper.htm</a>

I think visiting a nutritionist would be helpful. If you 've seen a nutritionist before, was it helpful? I also battled ED around 10 years ago - went through therapy and saw a nutritionist. Actually, the nutritionist is the one who helped me the most. Best of luck!

Me, too. I got nutritionist assistance when I got free personal training (intorductory 5 sessions) with my gym membership. Really helped me!

i know, i know.<br><br>
i had cheese this morning in fact. so...gross. sigh.<br><br>
also a question thats been bugging me..<br><br>
can you be healthy and underweight??<br><br>
like...when i was eating plenty, and not thinking about it all, i was still far far underweight, but if you're getting plenty of vitamins etc is there any danger to that?? or is the only danger to being too thin malnutrition? i always wondered.

Listen hon, go see the nutritionist - get your focus off weight and caloric intake. Just eat and enjoy your food! Remember that your views of your body/food is skewed at the moment. Just focus on healing and health in general, ok? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
As far as your question if you can be underweight and healthy - sure you can. I'm not extremely underweight but I'm at the very lowest end of my ideal body weight range. I've maintained my weight for 5 years so I consider myself to be healthy.<br><br><br><br>
Just focus on health <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

If you are in the US, I'd suggest a dietrician, not a nutritionist.<br><br><br><br>
From wikipedia:<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">A nutritionist is a person who advises people on dietary matters relating to health, well-being and optimal nutrition. <b>It should be noted that anyone (whether with or without formal specialised education) can refer to themselves as a nutritionist. There is no regulatory body for nutritionists.</b><br><br><br><br>
Nutritionists should not be confused with dietitians (although the latter may sometimes describe themselves as nutritionists). Dietitians are health care professionals who have received specialised formal accredited tertiary education and training, and undertake internship in hospitals, and who are required to adhere to their regulatory body's code of conduct. They are also the only non-medically-trained healthcare professionals permitted to practise clinically in hospitals or healthcare facilites.</div>
