It's time to get real about 'quasi-recovery' and eating disorders… it's usually a state of being 'highly functional' but still with an active eating disorder.
In this episode I talk about what I mean by this and what to do if you are in this situation at the moment. There is still so much hope for a FULL recovery!!

In this episode I challenge the very common narrative in our modern Westernised culture that restrictive eating disorders are at their core driven by a fear of weight gain. I believe that this view is an oversimplified and convenient narrative that has been convenient to draw but it also prevents eating disorders being more widely understood.
