In brief: Can Vary

Return to baseline metabolism can vary from 3 months to 2 years.
It all depends on the type of eating disorder, how long you suffered, and your personal genetics. Many doctors and nutritionist have a metabolic testing unit in their office which can follow progression. I test and monitor every 2-3 months.
