For those who do not know how to, or who have an aversion to cooking, weekly meal preparation work is available. The patient experiences first hand the joy of preparing and eating wholesome delicious food. From shopping to clean up, she is involved.
For many severely Anorexic patients, this may be the only real meal she eats during the week. Likewise for the Bulimarexic individual it may be the only one she does not purge. While that doesn’t sound like much, it is a start….a step in the right direction. For many it is the beginning of a new relationship with food.
