Anorexia and Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Nutritionist,
I have suffered from anorexia in the past and currently am now overweight. I weigh 160 pounds and I am 5 feet with a medium to large build. The idea of being pregnant has stirred my anorexia awake.

To keep from starving my baby I need to know how many calories I should be consuming in a day while pregnant so I can keep track closely to make sure I eat enough.

Thanks.
Gayle-Anne
