Ep. 08- Healthy or Obsessive? With Emily Fonnesbeck

Headshot - edited

This week Emily and I discussed her recovery from her eating disorder and how she got into dietetics. We talk about Orthorexia. What it is and where the line is between “healthy eating” and dangerous obsession. We also speak on the dangers of elimination diets. We define what a normal and healthy relationship with food should look like and how we can encourage that in our children as well.

Emily Fonnesbeck is a Registered Dietitian and owns her own private practice in southern Utah.  Her nutrition passion consists of helping individuals free themselves from diets, food anxiety, poor body image and obsessive exercise. She has a non-diet, weight-neutral, client-centered approach to help people make peace with food and their bodies.
