I think it’s a non-issue for someone recovering from an ED. If you have the financial means to easily buy pasture-raised, organic eggs and chicken, then by all means do so. But don’t sweat it at all. The most important thing right now is for you to get enough calories, protein and nutrients. Yeah, I would steer clear of refined veggie oils as much as you can and use butter, ghee, coconut oil, olive oil. But the AA acid issue is more of a long-term issue, and also more of an issue in an unbalanced diet – eat a variety of meats and fish, not only chicken.
One of the most important things you can do is overcome orthorexia, which goes hand-in-hand with anorexia. You can find something wrong with any food if you look hard enough. In the end, those with an overall healthy and balanced diet will come out ahead.
