Summary

This chapter will describes the first changes the reader must make in order to get started with CBT-AR, including:

  • Self-monitoring of food intake to identify problematic ARFID eating patterns (e.g., meal skipping, going for long periods without eating, repeatedly eating the same foods over and over)

  • Establishing a pattern of regular eating

  • Increasing variety with initial easy wins (e.g., bringing back recently dropped foods, introducing small but meaningful variations in preferred foods)

  • Increasing volume by adding 500 calories per day of preferred foods (only if underweight)
