Real Food; not MVit: Study: https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/1488259 & https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/1511502 & realize eating disorders are driven by internalized self-image, life-experience & major confusion issues. ENDOS just a label for manifestations/distractions of focus, not actual issues driving the self-destruction. Food is used for both reward & self-blame/not-perfect for wrong reasons.

Healthy foods &supps: Vegetables & fruits are relatively rich in vitamins compared to other foods. Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian Diet emphasizes foods rich in vitamins & phytonutrients. See http://tinyurl.com/ktampgg But even those eating a healthy diet are often deficient in vits & minerals so a quality multivitamin is advised- see http://www.multivitaminguide.org/ Everyone should take about 5000 iu of D if fall & winter.
