Eating disorders can impact any person, at any age, in any body. It is estimated that 20 million women and 10 million men in America alone will experience an eating disorder at some point in life. We live in a culture that associates worth with appearance. Being in a smaller body is equated with health and success. The truth is that 1 in 4 people that diet will develop an eating disorder. Eating disorders are not glamorous, as portrayed in the media and pursued in society. A life that is ruled by food, weight, and calories is ultimately a life of isolation, secrets, and shame.
You don’t have to live a life ruled by food and shame. Ditch the diet, find freedom in food, and make peace with your mind and body. Let’s flip the script on the voice in your head that constantly says you aren’t good enough.
