How to Fit Everyday Meals Into Your Eating Disorder Recovery Meal Plan: Part 7

Posted Mar 12 2013 3:58am
One of the most common questions that I get asked from my eating disorder clients is  how normal meals at home can fit into an eating disorder recovery meal planTherefore, over the next 10 blog posts (this is post # 7), I will be breaking down 10 everyday meals into an exchange based eating disorder meal plan.

For example purposes, I will be using the same mock meal plan (and specific exchange system) that I provided in the blog post titled  Meal Plans for Eating Disorder Recovery. *Please remember that I am providing the following meal plan as an example only (as nutritional needs are based on multiple factors including gender, age, height, weight, and activity level). To determine an eating disorder recovery meal plan for your own individualized nutritional needs, visit a registered dietitian that specializes in eating disorder treatment.


Meal # 7 Steak (Filet Mignon)



Lunch (2 grains, 2-4 oz protein, 1 fruit, 1 vegetable, 3-4 fats, 1 milk):

-grilled 2-4 ounce filet mignon (2-4 ounces protein, 1 fat)
-medium/large size baked potato with 2 Tablespoons sour cream and 1 teaspoon butter or 1 Tablespoon butter substitute (2 grains, 2 fats)
-1/2 cup seasoned, tossed in small amount of olive oil, and grilled asparagus spears (1 vegetable, 1 fat)
-1 cup watermelon (1 fruit)
-1 cup skim milk (1 milk)


Dinner (3 grains, 2-4 oz protein, 1 vegetable, 3-4 fats, 1 milk):

-grilled 2-4 ounce filet mignon (2-4 ounces protein, 1 fat)
-medium/large size baked potato with 2 Tablespoons sour cream and 1 teaspoon butter or 1 Tablespoon butter substitute (2 grains, 2 fats)
-1/2 cup seasoned, tossed in a small amount of olive oil, and grilled asparagus spears (1 vegetable, 1 fat)
-1 cup 1% chocolate milk (1 milk, 1 grain)

*although chocolate milk is technically not a grain, I will count it as a grain for my clients who are nervous about the additional carbohydrates and therefore calories it contains when compared to white milk.
