We have been given a suggested meal plan , but it just seems like everyday stuff to me.
The important thing for your daughter will be to learn to eat regularly again and to develop a good relationship with food. It is important to listen to the health professionals who are caring for your her, but don't be afraid of asking them what they recommend in terms of food balance.

I forgot to say that the NHS funded my DDs friend's stay at the Priory.

Thanks Darwin . That last bit is interesting that the nhs will fund an inpatient stay. CAMHS had been talking about an inpatient stay but when discussing the priory / galaxy just seems to be talking about outpatient , which I thought would be funding blockages . But maybe if she really needs inpatient , ( we are getting mixed messages ) then it might be possible at a private place but through the nhs.

I have a friend whose daughter is going through similar, they gave her a small high calorie shake type drink that she had to consume during the day along with her meal plan to help her gain, as similar to you are saying your daughter is becoming full up with the regular food as her stomach is so small this may be a better route to gain the extra calories - worth asking about?

No direct experience but my step brother worked at the Priory Roehampton for years. He says it's a fantastic unit. My friends daughter is having support with other local eating disorder team but they are just at the beginning of support. Wishing your daughter well.

Can't add any advice, except to say that my cousin's daughter was an inpatient here in Scotland for bulimia. It was a very challenging time, and she took almost two years off uni, but went back qualified as a primary school teacher and has since managed to produce two children (fertility can be an issue) and loose the excess baby weight in a healthy way.
Just wanted to say that things can work out. Best of luck.

Ironically my dd was given some of these shakes about a year ago when she had her one and only dietician appointment , but didn't take to them at the time ( with hindsight this was probably intentional ) . But we asked her current specialist if she should take them now , and it was suggested that she shouldn't .
I think I will take it up again with her at the next appointment as I'm not quite sure what the downside is . Thanks for the suggestion
