Inside Out 99: Disordered Eating
We eat for lots of reasons, and many of them are good. But if we eat--or if we refrain from eating--to medicate anxiety, find companionship or punish ourselves, we’re eating in a way that is disordered.
As many as 11 million Americans find themselves in the grips of eating disorders that can be medically diagnosed. An even greater number approach food in a way that is disordered, using food as a tool to resolve emotional issues--something food was never designed to address.
Ann Capper joins us in this conversation about food, life and the love of God. Ann is a registered dietitian, author of the novel Big Thighs, Tight Jeans and the nutrition editor of FindingBalance.com, a Christian health and wellness organization that focuses on eating and body image issues.
Listen in on our conversation--and leave a comment--as we talk about finding our identity in the God who redeems every situation and loves us each with an everlasting love.
