Most people don’t eat so little. I’m sure the ones that say they eat 500 or less are on a temporary diet to lose weight fast. If anybody kept up at only 500 calories they would be dead in year. Even long term anorexics with very low BMIs can afford higher calories and maintain.

I started slow my skipping lunch for a bit then ate less and less. I wasn’t able to cut off everything in the beginning because that would make me binge

Low calorie, high volume foods.
I can eat 3-4 times in one day and still be in 700 cals for the day. Personally i’d rather have my days’ calorie amount be spread out through the day rather than eating one big meal, so that’s how i’m able to eat so little.

Argh, this frustrates me a bit! It isn’t about eating a certain amount for increased weight loss … logically I know how to do that! It is literally just that if I go over a certain amount (and I won’t give a number because it changes daily) then I am convinced I will gain and am a failure. The number hasn’t been near 1000 in a month! The highest it has been recently is 600, and most days it’s less. It’s not like a conscious choice to set the limit, it just happens. One day I am okay with 200 at most, others 500… but I don’t make the rules!

Rn I don't have an appetite at all anymore and I'm deathly afraid of gaining weight even feeling food inside of my stomach. Putting anything in my mouth makes me instantly nauseous now. Probably good I'm getting calories via IV soon as I really can't bring myself to eat anymore. Sad shit

someone else replied with this but its the same for me; distraction and depression. also adhd meds. seriously though staying busy is what helps the most, i can spend hours writing/reading/playing video games or whatever. my current regimen is fasting for 2 days and then eating 500 calories, if i had nothing to do i’d be binging all day

For me, it's not that I 'want' to eat like... 200 cals a day for a week, but it's that I feel this need to. (I think others could relate) If I eat say, a normal dinner (by normal people standards), I can feel the food just sitting there in my stomach making me fat, so I either don't eat for a while or give up and purge. I don't like purging, so I just stick to not eating a lot, therefore avoiding the worst of the self-hatred.

self hatred, fear, and sadness make me feel full in the worst way. this relapse has been 400 to 500 calories consistently minus a few single day fasts and I only eat that much because I promised my partner I would try to. Many attempts just end in tears. It's hard to eat when you feel like you can't breathe.

Also: eating disorders aren't a lifestyle choice or something you can shut off. when you have a restrictive eating disorder certain parts of your brain just aren't working as they should be and the eating disorder mindset, the illness is what allows one to eat that way

I actually eat three times a day, I eat small portions and my stomach is a bit smaller so I feel full easily, that's really it. I don't feel super intense hunger or whatever, I am able to function throughout the day.

When I first started restricting, it was extremely painful and I ended up caving and getting snacks sooo many times because I was in terrible physical pain. Now it's still uncomfortable because my body obviously doesn't like it, but I've gotten used to the numbness and the hunger pains because I keep my calorie intake consistently low. It's like a contest; how little can I eat today?

It's all about volume. I usually try to stay under 300 calories, so I eat lots of protein and veggies to fill me up rather than wasting my calories. Distractions also help. I'm usually working 12 hrs a day so I don't really have time to eat or think about food.
