In this episode, Maddie Deakin (of Messy Health) shares her experience with extreme dieting while she was in nutrition school, being the only larger bodied person in her nutrition class, using dieting as a coping mechanism to feel a sense of control, and her experience recovering from disordered eating in a larger body. She also shares great advice and inspiration for people who are recovering from years of dieting and disordered eating.
Maddie Deakin (the mind behind the account Messy Health) is a HAES and Non-Diet Nutritionist (BFoodSc&Nutr) in Australia, and she explores the intersection between food, health, and the body – without dieting.
Listen to the episode for my convo with Maddie. Plus! I share a new listener email about their experience, and a story about my dog Molly being in a fight with a tapestry of Jeff Goldblum.
