Episode 70: Fasting Behaviors and Disordered Eating (Interview with Elisa Oras)
Elisa Oras shares her experience with intermittent fasting behaviors. She engaged in fasting before it was a mainstream and popular dieting trend, and it led to food obsessions, extreme hunger, and ultimately to disordered eating and bulimia.
I understand that many people want to engage fasting for health reasons; however, putting the body in a food-deprived state isn’t conducive to recovery from binge eating. Ultimately, you have to decide what is right for you (and consult with your doctor or nutritionist for health advice), but I want you to be aware of some of risks of fasting behaviors.
