Restricting Anorexia and the tightening treadmill – Michelle Sparkes

Restricting Anorexia and the tightening treadmill

Picking up from the last podcast (Why I differentiate Anorexia from other Eating Disorders), I want to now illuminate the experience of restricting anorexia, the tightening treadmill (see also TreadmillDiagram) and the movement from restricting sub-type to  binge-eating/purging sub-type. This movement within anorexia is not uncommon, and it can be easily misunderstood. I welcome your feedback and questions. michelle@michellesparkes.com @mp_sparkes
