Our expert says:
You know full well that you are slipping back into the anorexia by cutting down on carbs and losing 2 kg in weight. At 51 kg your present BMI = 17,6 which is still far too low for safety. You will not gain muscle tissue if you cut out carbs (carbs have a protein-sparing effect and assist with muscle building which is why all the top athletes eat such large amounts of carbs) and until your weight is closer to normal. Your body is trying to recover at the moment from the stresses of starvation and will only build muscles when you have reached a normal weight (64 or more kg). What you need to tell all the members of your team, esp the dietitian and the psychologist, is that you are in danger of relapsing into anorexia and that you need them to assist you to get over this hurdle.
Don't mess with your diet and tell your team what is going on.
