Hey Frankie. :)
I never really understood what people meant by having a voice inside your head until I was able to look at my own situation from an outside point of view. I believe we personify our eating disorders and that "voice" is that of our eating disordered thoughts. The same thoughts that put us down on some days and feed the illness by telling us we cannot exist without the disorder.
I haven't quite been in this situation myself. Perhaps you can keep a little post it with a pen lying around so you can write down things that pop into your head without getting distracted while you are supposed to be eating. Sit down and let yourself have this moment without any distractions. If it's something that can wait until afterwards, write it down and save it for later. You take priority over anything you can possibly think of doing.
Be good to yourself.
