I've had anorexia for quite a while now and have lost and gained weight 4 times already, I'm currently relapsing, will my metabolism be messed up forever will it ever be quick again?

No, it will not be destroyed forever if you increase your intake to the MM guidelines and don't exercise or purge. Start your real recovery today Smile

Hi Smile

When you go through relapses and through the ups and downs of anorexia, your body weight will go up and down all the time - just like you food intake does xD

Your metabolism is likely to sort itself out (i'm not a doctor and i don't know you or your physical health statistics so i can't be 100% sure!) But most people's metabolism does sort itself out after a while.

But just remember that long term starvation can permanently damage it... so its best to try and stabilize your eating habits as quick as possible - because other parts of your body get severely damaged in starvation as well and not all the damage can be undone!!

Keep strong Very Happy

I don't disagree that you should start recovery now, but I don't want to to be afraid of your metabolism not getting fixed either. Because that's not gonna happen Smile
