Learn How To Deal With ED Triggers When Pregnant

Pregnancy can be a difficult when you have an eating disorder, find out how one woman dealt with various triggers to get through it:

“I was anorexic and bulimic when I was a teenager. I was always a chubby kid and as I got older, I started gaining some control over the turmoil in my life by resisting food. I wouldn’t eat and in “times of weakness” when I did, I’d make myself sick to get rid of it. This is not an article about the signs and symptoms of the disease though, or even a cure for it for that matter. It is about how to deal with anorexia/bulimia during pregnancy. Right before I turned eighteen, I got pregnant with my first son. I did not want to hurt my baby. This is how I dealt with my triggers during the months that I was pregnant.

I added nuts and trail mixes as much as possible for protein. Even though some nuts can be higher in calories, I told myself that they were better than fatty meats.”
