Welcome, Warriors! ❤

Hi there! My name is Hanne Arts and a I'm twenty-two year old student, author, YouTuber, and recovery warrior. I started writing when I was about seven, and I began incorporating some of my own mental health struggles into my works from the age of thirteen. I published my debut novel, JUST PERFECT, in December 2014, followed by its sequel, RED RIBBONS, in October 2017.

To learn more about my journey, about anorexia, and about recovery, be sure to use the tabs above to navigate through my website! Don't hesitate to leave your comments, and be sure to subscribe/connect with me!


  1. I'm also recovering from an eating disorder (started with bulimia but later on it became anorexia) but it seems I dont really need many calories to put on some weight. Do you have any idea of how many calories you needed in the beggining of your journey towards recovery to put on some weight? And do you think that the longer you're underweight you will need more/less calories?

    1. Initially you might gain weight more quickly (especially if you've restricted for a longer period of time), but your body's metabolism will increase again. Initially I could gain on quite minimal amounts, but currently I need to eat 3,000+ kcal!


Please share your thoughts and comments with me! I absolutely love to hear from you :-)
