Certified eating-disorders dietitian Lindsay Krasna joins us to discuss disordered eating among athletes, why eating disorders are less of a pathology and more of a reaction to diet culture, the role of thin privilege and economic privilege in people’s relationships with food, why healthcare providers should stop assuming that people have limited knowledge around food and body issues, and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about whether people without celiac disease ever need to go gluten-free.
