    people with EDs refer to certain foods as 'safe' food usually they are fibrous vegetables or something like no fat yoghurt or whatever helps them to pretend they are eating all day whilst not actually taking in any substantial calories

    OP: if you start to think of safe food it's time to seek professional help

    Yep. Exactly. "Safe foods" is an eating disorder term...

    ... any food I can log easily and quickly; I really like food.

    "safe" = feeling confident that the nutrition info is fairly correct so I can log it! Sadly, this may mean may on occasion that a packaged food feels "safer" than a homemade dinner that someone else prepared or anything not from a chain.
    This seems so self limiting.

    Hmm... the notion of "safe foods" is part of disordered eating. Like, foods that don't make you anxious, or feel fat. Not sure this is the place for this topic.

    Safe foods? Safe for what........... Food sensitivities .........................................................................

    Probably there are no truly safe foods for absolutely everyone in every situation. Have you ever looked for a safe, safe food listing for all.

    You can guess I am totally hacked of with salicylate, soy and other, stuff

    By the way I do not have an "eating disorder" my family will tell you I LOVE FOOD. I hate the real PAIN, and other Chronic health issues that I can fall fowl to and don't get me started on the effects of perfume etal

    Also this is a subjective area because it relates to the individual and as I was told by my immunologist WE ARE AT THE EDGE OF SCIENCE

    I am going to assume (probably correctly) that OP suffers from an eating disorder. And by safe foods, She means foods youve deemed ok to eat. Like some anorexics will pick white bread and oranges as safe foods. But others its eggs and apples. For random example.


    OP, if you do have an eating disorder, please seek help.
    Do not let this disease ruin your life.

    That was my initial thought as well. Please, OP, seek help. Food is neither safe nor unsafe, and holding onto the idea that some foods are is disaster.

    Safe foods is a term used by people with eating disorders...
    Stay strong!

    All food is good for you
  • I know what she means..... Favorite Safe food: Healthy to eat and tastes great. We all have an eating disorder of sorts or we wouldn't be on myfitnesspal. I wish I could eat whatever and whenever I wanted, but I can't. We have diabetes in our family and I have to maintain to survive a healthy future. There is no moderation in that. My body just reacts to foods differently then those who can enjoy eating anything they want.

    So in this case my safe food is all unprocessed organic foods. No chemicals are added and I am able to eat a lot of it and stay healthy. Doesn't leave much for a very favorite but seeds and nuts added to my vegetables does the trick. I really like chicken and fish too.
