BauerPower, as you know, hunger cues can be way off during ED recovery – even a year in. Have you considered eating first thing in the morning regardless of hunger? Remember that during the night if you don’t eat then you are going for 8+ hours without eating, which means that by the time you get up in the morning you will likely be in a catabolic state. So it is very reasonable and, in fact, a very good idea for you to eat right away. If you work out without eating first then you are probably just exacerbating the catabolism, which is definitely not what you want during ED recovery.

Also, your wording implies that you have a ritual of exercising first thing in the morning. That sounds very counterproductive during ED recovery. You might want to reconsider.
