OK Y'all, it's my Part 2 interview with Eating Disorders expert Dr. Linda Buchanan. We had a great first part discussion about the basics and understanding what Eating Disorders are, what they look like, what treatment looks like, and what to pay attention to. Dr. Buchanan explained that eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, and how over 30 million Americans suffer from some type of Eating Disorder, 10 million of which are for men. Like I mentioned before, this mental and nutritional condition is no joke folks! If you haven't heard Part 1, go over and take a listen so you can get a good introduction to Part 2. 


In Part 2 we delve deeper into the various nuances and challenges of Eating Disorders. Dr. Buchanan helps us understand Eating Disorders at a whole new level with topics such as.


  • Dual or multiple diagnosis – trauma, anxiety, depression, chronic illnesses
  • Using narrative therapies and approaches 
  • Dealing with ambivalence
  • Genetics and Life experiences – Nature vs Nurture 
  • New/different types of ED – orthorexia
  • Healthy At Every Size and Intuitive Eating
  • Effects on Metabolism and Setpoint Theory 
  • What is it rewarding to work with people with ED
