Recovery Stories: Connection and Advocacy

00:0000:00

This weeks podcast is a conversation with Aimee Becker on recovery, connection, and advocacy

 

Aimee Becker is the Chief Operating Officer of the Gaudiani Clinic. She spent 10 years dedicating herself to developing the infrastructure for Monte Nido & Affiliates. Inspired to join the field through her own recovery, Aimee joined Carolyn Costin when Monte Nido was only a six bed residential facility, as the Program Coordinator. Progressing to Director of Operations and then Chief Compliance Officer, Aimee oversaw Monte Nido & Affiliates’ expansion into six states. In addition to her strong commitment to superb programmatic and operational functioning, Aimee developed a deep engagement with the therapeutic values and processes inherent to the world of eating disorder treatment. Through years of leading groups on gender and sexuality at Monte Nido, Aimee further developed her fundamental belief in client-centered goals, a narrative approach to therapy, and the idea that the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem. She is developing training on queer competency for eating disorder professionals, highlighting non-binary constructs of gender and sexuality and non-assumptive models of therapeutic engagement.

Rebecca has influenced millions through her writing, podcast, and appearances in over 100 media outlets including NBC Nightly News, CNN, the TODAY show, the Washington Post, O Magazine, Self, Real Simple, Health, Yoga Journal, and many others.

Why my eating disorder turned me into a grocery thief

00:0000:00

Personal story time!

 

Not everyone who is suffering from long-term malnutrition turns to stealing, but I think it is a lot more prevalent than most people assume it is. It makes sense why a brain that believes resources are scarce would feel the need to take without giving anything away. 

In this podcast, I talk about my personal experience with kleptomania.

The State of Science: Sugar Addiction

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha Farar talks to Maggie Westwater, one of the authors behind a study looking into misconceptions behind the notion of sugar addiction. 

We talk about:

- Animal studies into addiction and what they can tell us about human behaviour.

- How restriction, not addiction, looks to be the driver behind binge eating behaviours. 

- Artificial sweetners and how they affect the way we desire foods. 

- Binge eating development and the role of restriction. 

- Why "food addiction" can be a problematic use of language. 

 

Paper we discussin in this podcast: Westwater, M.L., Fletcher, P.C. & Ziauddeen, H. Eur J Nutr (2016) 55(Suppl 2): 55. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00394-016-1229-6

Orthorexia: Why it’s healthy to eat “unhealthy” foods

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about orthorexia and why it is important to be able to eat all kinds of food without stress — including foods that you judge as unhealthy. 

I see orthorexia as a restrictive eating disorder. The goalposts may be slightly altered, but it is still restricting certain types of food that the sufferer deems to be "unhealthy."

If you have orthorexia you may find that you feel stressed about eating things like:

  • Fatty foods
  • Sugar and sweets
  • Salt
  • Artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Pesticides or genetic modification
  • Non-organic foods
  • Animal products
  • Dairy products
  • Anything considered to be unhealthy

People with orthorexia often also get obsessive about foods that they consider to be "healthy". So supplements may be excessively bought and used. Organic foods, foods that are sold as "health" foods.
