To get a fair description of the whole recovery process, we based our study on two different kinds of perspective: one focusing on the former sufferers thoughts and the other focusing on the clinical opinion. In our result we found that sufferers from an eating disorder have excellent hopes of recovering. In the end of the study we found two main conclusions: one was that its important for the recovery process of an eating disorder that both the physiological and psychological aspect of the illness are treated and the second was that it’s important that the sufferers wants to recover.
