In this episode, Eric Helms interviews Steve Taylor (the team registered dietitian) and Amanda Rizo (the team mental health consultant) about the issues of disordered eating and eating disorders in physique sports.
What is the difference between disordered eating and eating disorders? What is the connection between physique sports and disordered eating/eating disorders? What does therapy look like? What are treatment options for someone who has (or may have) an eating disorder?
Along with answering all of the above questions, Eric, Steve, and Amanda spend a good portion of the episode describing strategies someone can use to help them alleviate/eliminate disordered eating behaviors. Along with covering these strategies, they also discuss what the next step is if these strategies aren’t effective at eliminating the undesired behaviors.
