Janet Ford (artist & author) talks about her 22 year battle with eating disorders.  She started at 14, as her mom was dying, and soon found she was addicted to both-binge eating and purging as a coping mechanism.  Janet thinks it's one of the most expensive addictions out there--at one point she was binge/purging 4-8 times per day (each purge could cost close to $100 and she spent ~3 hours in the bathroom afterwards each time).  She lied, cheated and stole so she could afford the habit.  BUT, there's redemption!  This is a fascinating story for anyone, whether you suffer from eating disorders or not.  

Janet breaks down misconceptions about bulimia.  She also talks about body positive instagram accounts, fatphobia, body-shaming, diet culture, breaking down "good" and "bad" food, the concept of 'health', adults as role models for children, 12-step programs, recovery and SO much more!

Janet is the author of Delusions of Grandeur and the soon-to-be-published 100 Days of Bulimia.  She can be reached on Instagram @fordjanet or janetamara@gmail.com
