Hello. : Hello. I see a bunch of tags here to include "eating disorders" and "eating disorder treatment". If you have been formally diagnosed with an eating disorder and are under treatment, then you would have developed a healthy eating plan with your treatment team. 1, 000 calories per day is quite low.

Please work with them to figure out what is best for you. ...Read more
