Eating Disorders Expert
It sounds like you are wanting to prescribe to your body how it must be and that you should be slimmer than you are at present. Are you not expecting your body to be smaller than it naturally wants to be? It seems that you have a history of disordered eating and that you feel it necessary to be as small as you were as a very young adult. However, I suggest you remain in contact with your nutritionist and work towards following a sensible and moderated way of eating. You body will take care of itself and stabilize at its set point (natural personalized weight). I would watch the alcohol intake. Not only is it a rich source of calories that might discourage you from eating, but it seems to disinhibition you to eat in a way that feels to be out of control to you. I think it is important that your eating habits are a reflection of a fully conscious and sober state. Speak to your nutritionist, as you may do well being referred to a therapist to explore your emotional state and poor self-esteem.
