Play • 27 min
What if we changed our story about why we eat?

Suzanne LaGrande interviews clinical psychologist Dr. Anita Johnston specializes in eating disorders and women's issues. Johnston is author of Eating in the Light of the Moon: How Women Can Transform their relationships with Food Through Myths, Metaphors and Storytelling.

In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, Johnston explains what “disordered eating" means, the connection between eating disorders and diet culture, and why food isn't really the problem; it's a red herring that diverts us from the real, complex issues underlying disordered eating.
