We think of athletes as the healthiest people around, but unhealthy relationships with food and exercise are even more common among athletes than in the general population. Former competitive runner and Eating Disorder Dietitian Lizzie Briasco, MSc, RD, LD joins us to talk about why athletes of all ages are at risk for EDs, how to spot someone who might be suffering, and what attitude changes in athletic programs could help prevent disordered eating before it starts.
