We help ours with thoughts about some repairs, mods in his room, plans to go to a concert, or some talk about his favorite youtubers.
(BTW he still sees eating challenge videos : e.g. big portions/burgers/etc)
As far as reading is concerned, our S stopped studying or caring about books when ED took over. Now he attends regular school lessons in IP and has started to read some literature. He seemed more interested in literature rather than tech-related magazines which I found absurd. He is afraid of going back to school. He has already revealed to an old friend of his his whole situation. Lets see what the comeback to school will bring.

We needed to stop all Youtube for some time as my d was binge watching cooking shows and cannot stop it. That helped. We stopped all internet without supervision for about 6 months.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

There is an option in OpenDNS (currently exploring CleanBrowsing as well) which cuts all anorexia or food related content. But it is so rigid that marks as "denied" even little kiddie stuff and sets the whole google/youtube in restricted mode. Which means half of our favorite content cut down and blocked.
But pulling the plug of the router is also an option .
