Episode 40: Learning to exercise after an eating disorder with Rochelle Basil
For so many people with an eating disorder, exercise becomes a behavior and integral part of the disorder. It can be incredibly challenging to return to running, biking, swimming or whatever sport it was while in recovery because the mere action of exercising can be a trigger for all those old ED behavirors.
Today on the podcast Rochelle Basil, a running coach for Lift Run Perform and Peak Movement Collaboration, joins host Julia Werth to discuss how she did it. Rochelle goes into the nitty gritty of how she walked off a division 1 track team in college and proceeded not to run again for five years before braving the old trigger and learning to find the love for movement alone.

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!
