what is this episode about?
The stigma’s associated with disordered eating often prevent people from getting the help they need; including the assumption that if you get help you will be forced to stop exercise or give up your passion for sports.
In today’s episode, I dig into the reason to stop exercise during clinical eating disorder recovery while also debunking the stigmas that you have to stop. You can overcome disordered eating while continuing to train or participate in sport but it must be analyzed on a case by case scenario, and with the help and guidance of a professional team including dietitian, coach, and physician. I give a multitude of examples with clients I’ve recently worked with who have either continued exercise, stopped exercise, or continued but with modifications. These real-life examples are from athletes at the high school level, college level, professional athletes, and recreational athletes.
