Rank #5: Why most eating disorders and disordered eating go unnoticed with Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani
Today’s guest is Dr. Jennifer L. Gaudiani, MD, CEDS, FAED. She is the Founder and Medical Director of the Gaudiani Clinic. Board Certified in Internal Medicine, she completed her undergraduate degree at Harvard, medical school at Boston University School of Medicine, and her internal medicine residency and chief residency at Yale. From 2008 to 2016, she was one of the leaders of the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health. She left after serving as its Medical Director and as an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine to found the Gaudiani Clinic, which provides outpatient in-person and telemedicine medical care to patients of all genders with eating disorders and disordered eating and to those in recovery.
The Gaudiani Clinic is a HAES®-informed provider that cares for people of all shapes and sizes. Dr. Gaudiani has lectured nationally and internationally, is widely published in the scientific literature as well as on blogs, is a current member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Eating Disorders and the Academy for Eating Disorders Medical Care Standards Committee and is a former board member of iaedp.
Dr. Gaudiani’s book Sick Enough: A Guide to the Medical Complications of Eating Disorders was published in 2018 and is available on Amazon.
In this episode, we talk about the fact that all bodies react differently to restrictive eating and why eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes. In fact, most people that struggle with disordered eating are in straight-sizes bodies and larger bodies, which makes seeking treatment very complicated.
This episode will be SO helpful for you if you feel like you may be struggling with disordered eating but you are not in a body that you feel “looks” disordered.
We also talk about how to raise children and protect them from diet culture as much as possible and instil a positive body image.
Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Hey everyone and welcome to the Own it Babe Podcast!
First off, I want to thank all of you for the amazing feedback and messages I received after my episode last week. I totally did not plan on giving you a 20 minute life update and rambling away on what’s going on in my brain, but clearly it resonated with a lot of you, so I am glad I shared the episode despite feeling a bit nervous or even embarrassed by what I shared…
Today’s episode is an amazing one if you are currently thinking about starting to eat intuitively or you have been doing it for a while, but are confused about how to understand the research behind it or are still tempted by nutrition articles that suggest to cut out certain foods or eat in a way that doesn’t really comply with the Intuitive Eating Principles.
Today’s guest Kathleen Meehan is passionate about working with people as they learn to listen to their bodies for guidance to discover what feels good.
With an undergraduate degree and a masters degree in nutritional science, she has worked as a clinical dietitian and on a college campus. Now Kathleen works with clients virtually and to help people explore their relationship with food while reexamining what healthy really means. With a non-diet, weight inclusive approach, Kathleen is dedicated to serving her clients with a practical approach to evidence-based recommendations to help promote wellbeing through a big-picture lens.
Review of the week:
This week’s review comes from NicolleDiNunzio:
“If you have a body, listen up. The Own it Babe Podcast is Rini’s soul song to women (and men) everywhere. She takes her experiential knowledge and weaves a story line to help guide women to understanding and appreciating their perfectly imperfect selves. As an entrepreneur, wife and new mama, these thoughtful words of kindness and understanding help me give myself an extra dose of grace on days when it’s so easy to look into the mirror and fall prey to thoughts that steal your joy. Rini keeps reminding us that we are all beautiful and worthy, no matter what size jeans we are wearing, what our business card says or what season of life we are in. We are all enough. <3”
