Our new societal normal is riddled with disordered eating and eating disorder-type behaviors. Diets, detoxes, lifestyle food choices that eliminate entire food groups, the scale, calorie counting, and constantly critiquing our bodies just to name a few.
I wanted to bring a guest onto the show to let us know what disordered eating looks like. I highly encourage you to share this with your friends, family members, and people you know who work in the health, wellness, and fitness industry. As fitness professionals, we have a wonderful platform to either foster a healthy change or perpetuate the problem.
It’s also important to think about who you look up to when it comes to fitness and nutrition… someone who has an unhealthy approach to their own health will inevitably project some of these unhealthy beliefs onto their clients/followers because we teach what we are. I’m a work in progress every single day.
