Check in with your friends (and especially your kids) using this time during lockdown to get “healthier”.
This intention, while usually innocent, can very often lead to disordered eating or even eating disorders (or relapse of an existing ED).
This post is the first in a series titled: “What Can I Eat if Everything is Toxic?”.

This week, I’m starting with arsenic.
There is no way to win or lose at healthy eating. It doesn’t matter if you do it better or worse than anyone else. It. Is. Not. A. Competition.
I asked women (no men happened to respond) with eating disorders/in recovery what they wanted future dietitians to know about working with clients with eating disorders. The following list is also helpful for nurses, doctors, therapists, teachers, fitness instructors, and anyone else who will ever work with clients/individuals with eating disorders.
