    Episode 33: Sports series episode #1 with Dr. Paula Quatromoni RD

    Many female athletes and coaches will tell you it's normal to lose your period for months at a time. Even some doctors will shrug off a patients lost period and explain it away with exercise. Today, on Life with ED, the podcast, host Julia Werth RD sits down with Dr. Paula Quatromoni RD, a professor at Boston University, to discuss how very wrong and damaging that line of thinking is.

    Paula and Julia talk about the transition from the female athlete triad to relative energy deficiency in sport (REDS). They discuss getting back into exercise after eating disorder recovery and the benefits that continuing to move your body during recovery can have!

Informative and Entertaining

Julia's podcast is super informative without being boring. I love how all of the information is presented as stories. This podcast has opened up my eyes to the world of eating disorders. This is a topic I really never knew anything about. I've realized, through the podcast, that I had a lot of misconceptions and misunderstandings regarding eating disorders. Highly recommend for anyone, and especially those in the health care field.

A great listen

I learn something new from every episode of life with ED. As someone close to a few ED survivors, Julia’s podcast exposes me to facets of ED I’d never thought of before. Her warmth and earnestness is what makes this podcast so approachable and great to listen to!
