A 33-year-old member asked:

Can any doc explain if you get fat during recovery from anorexia nervosa?

You don't get fat: you get healthy! That means you will need to gain some weight and reach the healthy weight for your height. This may seem "fat" to you, however, anorexics are too thin and can die from malnutrition. Psychotherapy will help you understand and change your misconceived body image so that you can be healthy and thrive again. Let us know if you have additional questions.

Fear of being fat.: A friend who thinks she's fat when her weight is normal. Obsessive thinking around food. Restricting food severely potentially with obsessive exercise. The key here is the distorted body image and thinking. A young active lifestyle with healthy foods and exercise is fine. It's the obsessive fear that shows the difference in normal and anxorexia. Help her find help! You might save her life.
