As promised, a follow-up to episode 134 designed to debunk all the stuff I disagreed with Dr. Glenn Livingston on. My guest is Kaila Prins, a six-time guest on the show.
Kaila is going to approach Dr. Livingston’s advice from the standpoint of someone who has struggled with an eating disorder and who is an advocate for people suffering from eating disorders.
I am going to approach Dr. Livingston’s advice from the standpoint of someone who helps people who have disordered eating habits and an unhealthy relationship with food. In the beginning of the show I clarify the difference between disordered eating habits and diagnosed eating disorders.
It should be noted that neither I nor Kaila diagnose people nor do we work with or treat people with eating disorders. “Disordered eating habits” is not a diagnosis and having disordered eating habits or an unhealthy relationship with food does not mean someone has an eating disorder.
As I mention in the intro, the vast majority of Americans suffer from some degree of disordered eating and generally have an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise.
