It’s not easy having an eating disorder.
For many of us sufferers we lack certain nutrients that we don’t get from food so supplements are the best way to keep as healthy as possible.
I’ve lost count of the different types I’ve tried over the years and this photo is just a snapshot of what I’ve got on the go at the moment.
There are vitamin drinks, calcium and magnesium tablets and probiotics to help keep levels high.
Digestion can commonly be all over the place too so having high fibre supplements and colon cleansers is essential. Oh the joy!
If that’s not fun enough, there are tablets and soothers for tummy cramps and bloating and some hormone regulation meds too. Not to mention the classic Fortijuices which are pretty unpleasant tasting high calorie drinks to help with meal replacement.
I dread to think how much I’ve spent on stuff like this over the years. I know it’s for the best to get in the key nutrients I don’t always get from food but not ideal or particularly sustainable.
Great motivation to get better though!
