The majority of "eating disorder recovery" advocates (especially those who went from "super skinny to super fit" are full of crap, incredibly hypocritical, and are destructive to other people trying to recover, amirite?

This is a complaint about mentally ill people not being able to see that they've simply gone from not restricting to over exercising.

Yes, I suppose it is complaint. Its not just about overexercising, it's about trying to force yourself to look a certain way, or trying to punish yourself/your body in a certain way. These people are still restricting, they've just changed the nature of their restricting habits for the sole purpose of looking super lean/borderline-underweight.

What I'm saying is:

Recovery is not about simply gaining weight - you gain weight and still be very unhealthy. It's about learning to love yourself and treat your body with respect. These people don't love themselves. They need to be focusing on their own recovery rather than trying to influence others. You can't help others to recover if you're not recovered yourself.

One of the core problems in the nutrition/fitness space is there are too many people who come from the eating disorder community and don't have good advice for most people. They're either promoting protocols that could be seen as an eating disorder, or they're so afraid of promoting eating disorders that they refuse to give advice on intentional weight loss.
