You know the hardest part about having an eating disorder?
It’s not feeling cold all of the time.
It’s not the hunger.
It’s having no idea why, or how, you got anorexia.
I’ve been anorexic since I was 12 years old, and the worst part of the disease is feeling guilty. You feel like you’re “defective,” and that it’s somehow your fault.
Luckily, new research has come out that helps shed light on exactly why some people become anorexic, like me, and others don’t.
In this podcast, science journalist and former anorexia sufferer Carrie Arnold is going to teach you what really causes eating disorders. Here’s what we discuss:
- The three main causes of anorexia.
- The most underrated warning signs that someone might have an eating disorder.
- How your brain function changes when you get anorexia.
- How to help, or at least talk to, someone with an eating disorder.
