I am beyond happy to welcome back episode 3’s guest Rachael McBride MCN RD/LD LCDC as we talk about Eating Disorders. She is a great pal as well as a wealth of information as a Registered Dietician. We discuss common misconceptions, stereotypes, screening, as well as tips for loved ones to assist identifying Eating Disorders and how to open a conversation about it. Like, share, and subscribe and as always, remember to #FeedYourMentalHealth.
As 2015 begins, we all make that ridiculous list of promises: save more money, make better choices in relationships, and of course….GET HEALTHY! So what do we do? We go out, buy new shoes, new work out gear, a new water bottle, and sign up for your gym membership.
So why do we do this? What is the purpose? Is healthy living solely for the physique? How does it affect our mental health?
Eating Disorders are extremely common and can be hard to understand. A lot of the times when we think about being “addicted to food,” it’s often said in jest and not taken too seriously. Well, that’s why I brought in my first guest to Chubby Therapy Podcast, Rachael McBride.
Listen to how she discusses everything from thigh gaps, food as comfort, and learning to trust our bodies. Below are ways to get in touch with her:
