How to find a healthy medium with an eating disorder?

"How to find a healthy medium with an eating disorder. I find the line is vague between too little food or too much. How will I ever know when it's enough and be able to maintain that?"

I think when you have eaten disorder, you can't jump from disordered eating into like an intuitive place where you can just really trust your hunger and fullness cues and trust your body immediately.

It is a slow process of getting back in tune with your body and things that can help with that are like that's following a meal plan to begin with. If you have regular times when you're going to be eating, including a whole range of different foods. And actually by doing that, you're starting to train your body into expecting food and to start to be able to reconnect with your hunger and fullness cues.

And it's just a messy process that takes time. And I just say that you just need to kind of keep practicing, keep tuning in and over time, the more you do this, the more you'll be able to trust your body and recognise when you're hungry, recognise when you're full and just have that more intuitive response.
