Hi - so I know I need to eat more, along with not purging. I am worried that my body is in "starvation mode" and I will gain weight uncontrollably. I have had ppl tell me two different things. One that I will gain weight because my body will hold onto everything. If this is true does it last forever? Other people have also told me the starvation mode theory is a myth and your body will do what it needs to...use more calories if it has them, or use less if it doesnt. I want to believe the second theory because it makes food a little less scary. I know I am not anorexic/bulimic just because of food and weight, but I am trying to deal with all the emotional issues - the weight and food just adds to the anxiety. Anyone with advice or person experience to share would be greatly appreciated!
