episode 25: the one about eating disorders

In this week’s episode Hannah & Ali talk all things eating disorders. As always this episode focuses on listener questions and shining an informed light on this complex topic. What’s the difference between an eating disorder and disordered eating? What causes eating disorders? How do you support a loved one if you think they’re struggling with their eating? How do you explain your eating disorder to your family and friends? How do you face the scale or approach intuitive eating if you’ve had a history of an eating disorder? February 1-7 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. If any of the information in this episode is relevant to you, know that there is no such thing as looking like you have an eating disorder. Eating disorders do not discriminate; they are severe and far reaching, and affect people of all ages, cultures, genders, socioeconomic status and of ALL weights and shapes. Early access to support is one of the most predictive factors in finding a healthy relationship with food and your body. Unfortunately the stigma associated with this illness often prevents people from accessing the supports they need. This has to stop. Eating disorders can’t afford to wait. Hannah & Ali are here in this special final episode of season 4 to let you know that you are worthy of support, you are deserving of care, and you are not alone. If you or someone you know is struggling with your relationship with food, your body or exercise, the first step is asking someone you trust for help. Going to your GP or a trusted healthcare professional is a great place to start.
