At what point in eating disorder recovery is one cleared to fast?

While I was actively anorexic my rabbi and doctor both told me I am not allowed to fast, but right now I’m at a stage where my weight is not super low, but my actual eating behaviours and mentality around eating are still not great (but way better than before). From speaking with authorities both in Judaism and mental health, I am still currently exempted from fasting, but I wanted to know at what point during recovery will I be allowed to fast again? Will I ever be cleared to fast?
