Meal support for eating disorder recovery is facilitated by a registered dietary nutritionist who provides emotional support during meal times, focused specifically on helping the patient to consume the foods on their meal plan and redirecting behaviors that sabotage eating and recovery. Significant recovery work takes place during meals, including exposure to challenging foods (fear foods) and the unlearning of conditioned eating disorder behaviors (restriction, slow eating, deconstructing food, cutting food into tiny pieces, taking tiny bites, emotional eating, binge eating, food rules or food policing, etc.). During meals, irrational thoughts about food and how it works with one’s body can be confronted with reality-based ideas, again confronting the eating disorder. Goals are set as a patient joins meal group, and recovery based objectives are focused on during each meal to provide the patient with the most impactful and sustainable support.
