It’s more common than you think to find patterns of eating disorders in athletes.
When your main focus is on the performance of your body, you start finding flaws where other people probably wouldn’t.
You search for every single thing you can control about your performance, and it soon turns into unhealthy behavior.
On this week’s episode of The Body Confidence Podcast, I have my very best friend, Ryan Duff, here to talk about his struggle with binge eating.
He’s a medical student at The University of Minnesota, a multiple marathon finisher (qualified for the Boston marathon), and speaks fluent Italian.
So there’s no shortage of talent or ability in his life.
But how can someone so ambitious and driven struggle with negative body image?
It’s very common.
Body image issues effect people in all walks of life.
There’s no poster child for body shame and self criticism.
You never know who in your life is facing this internal struggle.
Ryan is one of my closest friends and I had no idea until he recently shared his experience on his blog, Unleash the Duff.
This episode explores the mindset practices you can use to develop a healthier relationship with food, your body, and your identity.
Rebekah Buege is a body confidence coach helping strong women process critical thoughts and heal insecurities.
