Dr. Berkus explains if a woman is more likely to have an eating disorder as an adult if she had one when she was a younger woman.
I would say that yeah, part of the recovery is ongoing and because women at different stages in their life have different stressors and different expectations from their body, I think someone who’s had an eating disorder always has a heightened awareness of their body image and their relationship with food. So it’s a good idea for them to continue their recovery process and to get support.
Can they live a normal life? Sure. Can they meet their goals? Sure, but it’s something that I think that heightened awareness continues with them throughout their growth.
