Is she really recovering or not? I personally think she would have gained a significantly higher amount of weight if she was really eating what she shows us to be eating every day but I'm unsure. Thoughts?

I agree with you. She has videos where she’s claiming to eat over 6,000 calories and it definitely does not show. At least she is very positive and recovery-oriented. I’m probably just jealous.

People with Ed's lie and lie and lie to protect their disorder. She loves the attention from recovery. She's weird as fuck, her relationship with her mom is strange and she's waaaaaaay too close to her mom for a 20 something. She needs a life outside of food. Tbh I think getting a job and finding friends and a life outside of her mom and food is a million times more important for elzani than gaining weight is. THAT is what she should be focusing on.

I can't watch her. She seems so dumb and it's just sorta cringey for me to watch. And like mentioned above, her relationship with her mum is so odd. But her personality is so vacuous, she really isn't likable to me at all.

I really don't think she eats 6k calories a day. Most recovering people are encouraged to eat 2500. If she's eating 6k, she's probably purging.

She still seems extremely obsessive to me, you can see sometimes when she gets food how much she is freaking out, then she realizes the camera is on and goes to a poker face.

I feel really sorry for her, she needs proper psychiatric help in my opinion. That would be what is best for her, although you can tell she's doing a bit better in her last few videos. I think she is ready for recovery, but she needs someone other than her family to help her through it.

At first I started watching her because she's a thinspo lol. Now I watch her because she's positive and it makes me positive and when she's having a breakdown it reminds me it's okay not to feel okay. I also like her family and her pets so much. I try not to think about her intake and the fact she's not gaining as much as she should. It's none of my business and I neither I want to neither I have the right to judge ppl. It's obvious she's trying so hard and that's the most important thing. Recovering mentally is harder than recovering physically and we all know it.

TBH, I think she may be exaggerating or otherwise overestimating her calories

I used to watch her a little but I couldn’t keep watching because she seems - I dunno. Fake? And kinda over dramatic and just yea. Pretend.

I feel like she is in semi recovery but faking it a lot for the camera and the YouTube views

I couldn’t even finish watching one of her videos, such utterly boring content and vapid self obsession.

Tbh I switched to watching Grackle, though she is not disordered, Elzani seems to idolize the girl so much that she seems to be copying a lot of what grackle does/acts

Definitely not recovering.
She claims to be eating +2000 cals but if that was true she would look a lot healthier...

I hope she continues uni. Friends are really important I totally agree! Idk about her loving the attention, I remember when I was a minor I hated having my parents watching what I was eating and all the therapy sessions. I would have never filmed myself, but it seems like the reason she's doing it is because it gives her a sense of purpose to eat and and at least not get worse. I wish she was more honest. I wouldn't say that she's weird, maybe awkward, but there's nothing wrong with that

I think she's in a state of quasi recovery. I mean she's definitely made a decent amount of progress, but I don't see her being able to get much further in recovery without some real psychological help.


relapsing again. fuck me

i think being as close to death as she was and then being a mother watching your child slowly killing herself over like 7 years is more than enough justification for why they are so close. she does need a job/a place at university/something to do but i bet they are all aware that the level of independence that would bring her would also be very dangerous and she would relapse. she needs to be fully weight restored and better mentally before she can do that. i think her family are fully aware and are trying to protect her from herself.

 

i think people are being a little too harsh in this thread seeing as how ill she still is mentally.
