Many of us have had needed very high amounts of calories and fats to get our loved ones into recovery from anorexia
Many have needed to do this for years into the recovery, especially if the sufferer is a young teenager.

Dr Walter Kaye from UCSD explains more here, some people will need up to 10,000 calories per day to recover.
Well worth watching.

Here is a research report that discusses the topic. 

http://www.chop.edu/doctors/peebles-rebecka

Rebecka Peebles MD is one of the F.E.A.S.T clinical advisory panel members & is an Adolescent Medicine Specialist and Co-director of the Eating Disorder Assessment and Treatment Program at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Eating Disorders in Children and Adolescents: State of the Art Review

Kenisha CampbellRebecka Peebles

Here is an extract from that report which I believe identifies the scenario of Children & Adolescents & the topic of how much nutrition is needed.

It is important to note that children and adolescents are not “little adults,” and because of their hypermetabolic state, once nutrition is introduced, their caloric needs are high, typically between 3000 and 6000 kcal daily. They may remain hypermetabolic for up to 2 years,113,140 so it is important not to reduce caloric intake prematurely once they reach their weight goal
