Anorexia, also known as Anorexia nervosa, is more than just restricting your diet. Anorexia is dangerous because of this laid-back approach to this seemingly harmless condition. Anorexia is a serious mental illness that can be accompanied by irrational fears and obscure eating habits. It causes an extreme aversion to foods, a fear of gaining too much weight, and an unhealthy perception of the body.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with anorexia, it is vital to seek immediate professional help.
It is important to establish a support network and make lifestyle and diet changes. This includes a healthy eating plan, regular eating habits, and a regular diet. The National Health Service recommends that you follow some basic guidelines:
- Start with small meals and gradually increase the amount.
- Consult nutrition experts to correct biochemical imbalances.
- Eating regularly is very important. It’s best to eat 5-6 times per day.
- Weight gain of about 0.5-1 kg per week can be considered healthy. You will need to consume 3,500-6,000 calories extra per week. You can set a weight goal that you will work towards. Our Nutritional Expert can assist you.
You can use the following general guidelines to help you on your recovery journey.
Any diet for Anorexia should include foods from all major food groups. Include both essential micronutrients and major macronutrients.
- The importance of protein in regaining lost muscle mass cannot be overstated. You should aim to consume between 10-35% protein in your diet. Choose healthy protein sources such as tuna, chicken breast, egg white, and turkey. Avoid red meat as it is harder to digest and puts additional strain on the body.
- Carbohydrates should make up 45-65% or more of your daily calories. Whole grain cereals and bread can help provide energy to your body. Fruits, vegetables, beans, potatoes, and other carbohydrate-rich foods are also good sources.
- To compensate for the micro- and macronutrient deficit, you can eat more fresh fruit and vegetables, but in smaller portions.
- Consume bitter and pungent veggies such as bottle gourds, bitter gourds, radish leaves, sprouts, and carrots. To improve digestion, we recommend steam-cooking the vegetables rather than eating them uncooked.
- Healthy diets also require 10-25% of calories from fat. Choose your fats carefully. Limit trans and saturated fats, including those found in red meat, whole-fat dairy, baked goods, and fried food. Include nuts, avocados, and olives. Flax seeds and oils from canola and corn. Salmon, tuna, and cod are all healthy choices.
- Keep your bowels healthy with natural fiber. It helps to maintain regular elimination.
