I agree with The Real Amy, with one addendum: there’s often a two way street there, where eating well can give you the energy you need to deal with those other issues, and then dealing with those issues can help the food stuff sort itself out.

I think re-feeding definitely helps when disordered and restrained eating has caused a downward spiral. I think it’s also helpful if food is one of the areas in you’re life where you have more agency than others; if you can’t marshall the energy to change your work/home/relationship issues, and food is your main leverage point for turning things around, it can be a great tool.

But as above- dealing with those other elephants in the room is very important and maybe more so than just eating more.
