Eating Disorder Recovery- Suggested Intake and Exercise Level
Patient : I am 17 years old, 5'5" tall, and weigh 100 pounds. For about 6 months, I restricted my diet to 1200 calories daily. Within the past couple months, I have slowly been eating more and more. I now eat anywhere from 1600-2000 calories daily. I was wondering: How many calories I should be eating to recover from my eating disorder, and how much exercise I should be getting?
