“Eating disorder sufferers eat clean”

This is the kind of myth that can drive you crazy (jokes, I’m already crazy πŸ˜‚) I just wanted to tell a part of my story that proves this clean eating myth wrong. 

There was a particular point in time that I remember eating at pizza express once, sometimes twice a week. I always had the same thing: chicken pizza, and Nutella and dough balls for pudding. I was anorexic, but would eat all of the above. The thing is, to this day if I plan to have something “bad” then it will be counted calorifically and I will/did restrict before and after.

The stereotype increases my guilt over this part of my eating disorder. It shouldn’t, but it does. It’s like my restriction isn’t perfect enough. Fuck you society.  

Rant over. Xx
