The constant monitoring of diet, on top of the usual pregnancy weigh-ins can trigger behaviors that are hauntingly familiar to someone recovering from anorexia. “Monitoring your carbohydrates can be difficult for someone recovering from an eating disorder,” says Poon. “An important component of any prescribed ‘restrictive diet’ is to focus on the lists of food that you can have. When we can shift our mindset to view the lists of preferred food choices from a place of abundance and a perspective that these foods are nourishing and energizing our body, we actually open up the channels of creativity and the ability to receive the nourishment to support the healthy development of your new baby.”
