Can You Recover and Be a Vegetarian or Vegan? Eating Disorder Video
This week’s video addresses the topic of being a vegetarian or vegan and trying to recover. Does it mean that we cannot recover? Can we not go into treatment because they won’t let us abide by our beliefs? The easy answer about this is that yes we can recover and still be a vegetarian or vegan. It is a bit harder and we must work with a doctor or dietitian to ensure that we are getting the proper nutrition, but we can do it!
I created this video due to some questions that I received from one of my subscribers. She was wondering how to manage anxiety around food. I know that this is something that all of us struggle with from time to time, and I know that many of us will struggle with this throughout our recovery.

This video is addressing a very important issue and a worry that many of us have when we first decide to get help and either go to a dietitian or to an inpatient facility. How fast will they make me gain weight?? Will they make me fat or overweight?? I know that we all worry about that, and the quick answer is no. They will not make us gain weight too rapidly, nor will they cause us to gain more weight than is appropriate for our body.
Anger page. I colored an entire page red and then wrote what makes me the angriest on it. Kati Morton’s idea. (:
that the post-it-notes on my mirror really work a whole lot. I actually didn’t spend 10+ minutes staring in horror at myself in the mirror before I got dressed for the first time in months and months and months. I went to the mirror and actually smiled at myself, it’s like a hug :D It’s hard to see something negative when you’re looking through a frame of positivity. (: You don’t have to have an ED to do this; EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER SHOULD DO IT.
Anonymous asked: Hi Kati! How are you? You always answer everyone's questions and ask how everyone else is, so I thought I'd ask how you are today. I don't know how you do it. You're simply amazing! I have never asked a question on here because you get so many already (but I do come to your page often to read your awesome advice and responses to these questions, some of which have helped me understand myself and my ED better) I also want to say thank you for helping not only me, but also everyone else! :)
Awe that is so great to hear!! I am doing well, just busy lately.. but my weekend was nice:) Keep checking my blog because I get about 100 questions a day, so hopefully there are many helpful questions and responses!! xoxox
Anonymous asked: Hi Kati ,, I don't have that one person I can tell everything too and I really need someone to tell me I'm not stupid for restricting and it will be okay you'll get threw it , I guess I just need some comfort right now :(
I am so sorry that you are struggling honey :( it can be so hard, but know that you are not alone!! I am here to listen and support as much as I can :) You are not stupid for restricting.. it is not a choice.. we just have to figure out why you do so that we can start fighting it.. you know?? Cause you deserve to much more than a life filled with your ED.. You are worth it!! honest!! <3
Anonymous asked: my treatment team don't believe me when i tell them i'm binging. They think that because my bmi is so low I have a distorted image of how much is binge. This is not the case! How can they help me if they won't believe what I tell them?
That is really frustrating!! I would explain to them that a binge is whatever is feels like to you!! Whether or not it is a certain amount of food is not the point.. it is your mind set when you do it! I have some videos on this.. here are 2 of them..maybe they would watch these or you could try again to verbalize what you are struggling with :) I am so so sorry that they responded that way to you :( http://youtu.be/IxpjU4dWb9k http://youtu.be/2pD0pjNCtX4
Anonymous asked: Has a client ever made you cry? Either in front of them or afterwards?
Yes.. both actually. I used to get really emotional when a client would graduate out of the residential program I worked at. Also, it was upsetting if they had to leave because of insurance or because they just weren’t ready yet.. that would make me cry too :(
