Eating disorders are not gender, ethnic, or body size specific. ANYONE with a body can have an eating disorder.
Today I am talking with Ryan Mitchel who suffered with Anorexia, Orthorexia, and Exercise Addiction– very similar to my own story. I have found that it’s more and more common to have multiple eating disorders at one time so many of you may resonate with this combo.
I loved hearing his point of view on everything and think his story is powerful. He really shares how he thought that all these things he was doing for “health”– exercising hours a day, restricting food, choosing “healthier options”– but quickly was forced to see that all these things were radically DEPLETING his health.
It’s all fun and games until it’s not and you start experiencing intense negative consequences due to your eating disorder behaviors.
Enjoy the show!
