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. You stated you lost 23 pounds, but if you were already underweight than it would not be safe. If i was to tell you that your eating plan is right or not right for you, i would be undermining your treatment and your treatment team. Please work with them to figure out what is best for you. ...Read more
