Your welcome, roonitune! I hope it helps. But above all else, experiment around and find what works for you. And I would say to all recovering orthorexics/anorexics/restrictive eaters, that it would be better to error on the side of NOT restricting then the opposite. So if eating bread and milk makes many things improve but gives you a few mild symptoms, stick with it. But if symptoms are quite bad (such as receding gums, noticeable autoimmune problems, suicidal depression, etc.) then consider going away from it for a while.
For me, too many grain-based cookies and cakes and ‘junk food’ bothers me. But organic breads and oatmeal and grains doesn’t so much. And sugar-based ‘junk’ (fruit snacks, straight sucrose, candy) also doesn’t bother me. And for a while, milk (raw or pasteurized), yogurt, and ice cream bothered me, but hard cheeses and butter were fine. And then after a few months of eating what I could (and a lot of it), yogurt and ice cream were also ok. So it is an evolving process.
The ideal, of course, is to crave nothing, enjoy everything, and be able to thrive off of nearly anything.
I think over activity coupled with under eating is a big disastrous, and I’m right there with you. I spent too many years of my life working out hard and restricting in one way or another. I was very healthy all my life until rapidly, over the course of a few months, I mysteriously fell apart. A few hellish years past with me experimenting around with other ways to restrict in an attempt to find health, but I kept getting worse. It was only last summer/fall that I decided to try what I never have, which is simply eating instinctually. So far, so good; though I’m not out of the woods yet.
I wish you the best with your recovery, roonitune. It’s amazing how many of us are out there having ruined our health by following the mainstream pseudoscientific propaganda spewed out by every institutional authority known to man. The numbers keep increasing.
