In this podcast Tabitha Farrar talks to Jerica Berge about a new study illistrating how diet talk and encouragement to diet can be passed down through generations
Parent Encouragement to Diet From Adolescence Into Adulthood May Cause Intergenerational Harm
In this longitudinal study 556 adolescents were surveyed when in school and again after 15 years in adulthood and/or parenthood to evaluate the association between parental encouragement to diet in adolescence and health outcomes in adult life. Significant association was observed between parent encouragement to diet in adolescence and an increased risk of overweight or obesity, dieting, binge eating, unhealthy weight control behaviors, and lower body satisfaction in adulthood. In addition, the authors noted an intergenerational transmission of encouragement to diet in the home environment.
Clinicians should inform parents about the potentially harmful and enduring outcomes associated with encouraging their children to diet.

Recovery from Anorexia is often a time of heightened anxiety and stress. Managing recovery while looking after a young family is a reality for many adult sufferers. In this podcast Tabitha talks to an adult in recovery, Erin, about managing recovery with young children.
I am 36, and have lived in Colorado my entire life. I currently live in Highlands Ranch and have two children, 11 and 6. I have been married for 15 years. I studied sociology, philosophy and women's studies in college. I have struggled with issues around food and body image since I was a preteen. My eating disorder became severe at the age of 33. I want to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and weights understand that they can indeed develop this illness and that it is a life threatening disorder that needs to be taken seriously. I hope my experience can help others know they are not alone if they are struggling to recover while also being a parent.
