Today I'm joined again by the delightful Isabel Dawkes to discuss all things meal plans: what they are, as well as why, when how we use them to help individuals in recovery from hypothalamic amenorrhea, eating disorders and disordered eating.

In this episode we chat through:

  • What is a meal plan?
  • How many meals and snacks should be included in your meal plan?
  • Common traps people fall into when eating from a meal plan
  • How often a meal plan should be updated?
  • How long a meal plan should be used for when recovering from an eating disorder, disordered eating or hypothalamic amenorrhea?
  • A step-by-step guide on how to transition off a meal plan towards more intuitive eating
  • How to rebuild trust and confidence in your body's natural hunger and fullness cues
  • Tips to ensure you eat adequately after transitioning off a meal plan
  • If it's ever helpful to go back on a meal plan after transitioning off of one
