Caloric Requirements and Food Choices for Restoration and Maintenance

Caloric Requirements and Food Choices for Restoration and Maintenance

By Walter Kaye, MD

1.5 CE's

Research conducted by Dr. Kaye showed that patients with anorexia nervosa required greater than normal caloric intake to maintain a stable weight and had elevated activity levels during the 2 - 6 weeks following the weight restoration phase of treatment. By contrast, such patients studied 6 months or longer after weight recovery had normal caloric intake and activity levels. The prolonged delay in normalization of caloric intake and activity is mirrored by the slow return to normal of the neuroendocrine dysregulation that characterizes this disorder. This presentation will review the research findings and recommend a weight maintenance plan that incorporates them into a treatment plan that enhances the likelihood of permanent recovery. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
