We are so excited to get requests for topics! Today's podcast is covering compulsive exercise in relationship to eating disorder recovery. Meredith and Jill first review the difference between athletes and compulsive "exercisers." An excellent resource is Dr. Kate Bennett's website: Athlete Insight. Meredith reviews aspects of exercise that a therapist and dietitians in the field of eating disorders can focus on in the assessment process. Athletes, compulsive exercise and "over" exercise aspects are reviewed. Think INTENT and MOTIVATION.
