Yes BUT: With history of an eating disorder, there's always the possibility of relapse. Please consult with your psychiatrist or therapist about your dieting plans before implementing them. They may also know eating-disorder-wise nutritionists and trainers who can help you safely and effectively.

A 33-year-old member asked:

Is it possible that I have an eating disorder or just a diet?

If worried, see Dr.: If you are concerned that you may be overdoing your diet, you probably are. But why figure it out on your own? Speak to your primary care doctor. Eating disorders are very dangerous and you may need help, so please ask for it.
