    #121: Body Checking with Debra Spector

    Debra Spector M.S, R.D.N, C.D.N is a Registered and Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist who has upheld a private practice since 1990 on Long Island, New York (Nassau and Suffolk Counties) as a nutritional therapist, mentor, educator, entrepreneur and consultant.
    She holds an Undergraduate Degree from SUNY at Oneonta and received her Masters Degree along with completing her Internship at Long Island University. Debra specializes in eating disorders and treats adults, teenagers and adolescents. Her philosophy is meeting everyone’s needs individually and guiding them to achieve a normal relationship with food, weight, and body image. In addition, Debra strongly believes in guiding teenagers and adolescents away from the “good food vs. bad food” or “healthy vs. unhealthy” philosophy and to encourage them to find a way to make “all foods fit”. Her decision to put together this book of relational essays was primarily based upon the fact that she believes most people who struggle with eating
    disorders are either silently struggling alone or misunderstood. Debra believes everyone who struggles with an eating disorder should find their inner voice and be heard. More importantly, she wants those suffering to know that they are not alone.
    She is the author of the book The Things I’ve Seen People Do With and Without Food.
    We discuss topics including:
    The problems with comparing our body to a younger version of ourselves What is body acceptance? Being fixated on feeling one’s body for fat, bone and muscle Perception vs. reality SHOW NOTES:

A Great Resource for those with Concerns about Relationships with Food

Robyn Goldberg’s “Eating Disorder Trap Podcast” should be must-listening for people and professionals concerned with our relationship with food, and the many aspects of culture and behavior that complicate this already complicated issue. The episodes are brief and to the point, and always share important, relevant, and sometimes surprising, information.

The Eating Disorder Trap book is a great read for folks in recovery, family and friends or providers wanting to learn more about eating disorders. The podcast is an excellent accompaniment because Robyn connects with other professionals and those with lived experience to address many practical issues related to recovery. Well worth the listening time. Mary Tantillo PhD PMHCNS-BC
