    Hi all,

    I am aware that eating disorders are contraindications for VLCD and I wondered whether anyone knows whether that includes 'history of (but now recovered)' as well as currently suffering from?

    I want to do a VLCD but worry that I will not be accepted as I have had bulimia. I worry about asking so to avoid any uncomfortable situations.

    I'd also be interested to hear if anyone has had any positive/negative experiences with VLCD following an eating disorder. I can understand why they would say no full stop but also feel like it could benefit some people... so a little confused.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
