    I am going through the exact same position as you..trying to recover from the ED but aiming for a lower weight, the healthy way. First of all, you’re going to need a lot of self-motivation to be able to do this, eat healthier foods but don’t deny yourself all junk food, if you’re craving something, have it, just don’t go overboard and don’t worry about it, and exercise when you can. I know this doesn’t sound like much help but the key is to not go overboard and to take tiny steps, you will eventually get there!

    Eat as much fruit and vegetables as you want.
    Eat plenty of lean proteins (like boneless, skinless chicken breast, or egg whites)
    Eat a small portion of starch with every meal (like bread or potatoes or rice)
    Limit dairy and fatty meats (but still eat them, they’re good for you!)
    Eat almost no sugary foods (a couple times a week is fine – eat normal portions)
    Try not to slather things in fat — so just a small dab of butter on the potato or a dash of creamy dressing on the salad.

    Eat regular meals and keep a healthy snack handy so that you don’t lose control. (I try to keep an apple or some carrots at my desk)

    Treat yourself every now and then. If I like pizza and tacos, I should have some on the weekends. Preferrably, I should get together with friends to do so, so that it’s not just about the food (which can get psychologically complicated).

    Congratulations on healing yourself of a very difficult and dangerous illness. It takes courage and strength to admit to the problem and stop your unhealthy behavior. Now you need to learn healthy behaviors. In a way, this can be harder, because you don’t have the motivation of not killing yourself. But you do have the reward of feeling good and looking better when you develop a healthy lifestyle.

    The only way to lose weight, get fit and stay healthy is the slow way – healthy diet and regular exercise. If you rush, you fail, and you have only yourself to blame. Think long-term: don’t you want to get fit and stay that way for the rest of your life?

    No dieting: dieting ends, healthy diet is a lifetime of good habits. A basic healthy diet: lean meats and legumes, dark veggies, whole grains, lots of water, reduce processed carbs (soda pop is Satan!) and increase fiber. Snack on fruits and veggies instead of salt and sweets. You don’t have to count every calorie, but you should be aware of your overall intake. A healthy balance of nutrients by percent of total calories: 45% to 65% carbs, 10% to 35% protein, and 20% to 35% fat (no more than 10% saturated fat and little or no trans fat).

    It’s unrealistic to say you will never treat yourself to deliciously evil food ever again. The first time you fail becomes the excuse to quit completely. Allow yourself a moderate splurge once every two or three weeks. It’s easier to be good if you know there’s a treat in your future. Avoid temptation – don’t buy it until you eat it, and never get extra.

    Exercise: start easy and work your way up. Make the time 3-4 days a week – an hour walk (your dog will love you!), a stroll on the treadmill, swim, dance, whatever. NO EXCUSES – it has to become a habit. Add exercise to your day in small ways: take the stairs instead of the elevator, do isometrics at your desk, ride your bike to school instead of the bus. After a few months start challenging yourself – add leg weights, join a gym, take jazzercise, something. Keep working up from there.

    Sadly, moderate exercise doesn’t burn enough calories to lose much weight – a two-mile fast walk equals about half of a Big Mac. But exercise is irreplaceable for a healthy heart, stamina and flexibility. That means a longer and more active lifespan.

    Each body has different needs – develop healthy habits tailored to your body and mind. Educate yourself – anatomy and physiology is the owner’s manual for your body. There are thousands of websites with nutrition and exercise information. You can tell the good ones – they aren’t selling quick diet fixes or the patented Abdominatorizerinator.

    Don’t quit just because you fall off the wagon one or twelve times – everyone has weak moments. That’s no excuse! It took years to develop bad habits; it will take time to change them.

    Your goal should be a long and healthy life, not some arbitrary number on a scale. Your biggest obstacles are laziness and unrealistic expectations. Your best tools are perseverance and education.

    Good Luck!
