ARFID recovery with anorexia
Posted 07 July 2020 - 11:43 PM
I have AN and AFRIDS has limited my food types to only about 5 different foods.
But I try every single new food that comes out which fits into my AFRID requirements.
When I got out of my treatment Clinic, I had created precooked meals for dinner and planned breakfast and lunches.
The snacks in between for Morning tea and afternoon tea I tended to rotate through different snacks so the serving sizes still matched.
So the snacks were meals/foods that I allowed to be more flexible with swapping possible new foods in and if it didn't work out then it was ok since it could be swapped back to what it was.
If you do not like the new food you can always give it to other friends to try out or family members too.

Yeah my "rules" around ARFID have always been incredibly rigid and I followed them by default.
I also got way too into nutrition because of AN, so I think honestly a good chunk of my safe foods are just not calorically dense enough to "do" anything? If anything, ARFID has made recovery harder - the social aspect of eating has always been wack for me.
