Holly Lowery (ED recovery coach + anti-diet advocate) talks about her history with disordered eating & recovery AND presents healthier ways to have relationship with food & eating.

We also talk about:
myths & misconceptions about food & eating, eating disorder grey areas, atypical anorexia/bulimia, "clean eating" communities, diversifying our online representations of beauty, the damage disordered eating inflicts, set-point weight, fear of food and weight gain, food restricting, getting rid of the word "exercise", over-exercising, the link between depression/anxiety and eating disorders and SO much more.

This episode is awesome!  There are SO many misconceptions about eating disorders (most people aren't even aware of their disordered eating habits) and they affect SO many people.  Food is not a moral issue!
