Two women serve up the very serious issues of eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and the culture that spoon-feeds these destructive conditions to us with a dash of irreverence.
There’s Nothing ‘Atypical' about Atypical Anorexia
Diana and Lisa speak to Allison, a guest who recovered from Atypical Anorexia, to reveal how this diagnosis differs from low-BMI anorexia and how weight stigma, faulty media depictions of bone-thin anorexics, and doctors are preventing more people from getting help from this dangerous disorder. Diana shares an emotional revelation about her own disorder and the word “Atypical” is called into question (in other words: it’s b******t).

Hunger Trap Review
Diana & Lisa are very insightful and intelligent! I have enjoyed listening and learning this season. Can’t wait for the next one!
We all need to listen to this great podcast!
I have been following these two lovely ladies for a short while now and related to their stories and subject matters instantly. I love their ability to balance the subject from their two POV , which ultimately are quite similar. They bring up the topics in which some of us deem taboo (or society tries to convince us of that) . The guests are a great balance and overall it is just so relatable and a HEALTHY discussion we should all be having!
2 thumbs up
I’m loving this podcast and look forward to each new one. I appreciate the honest and and real talk by Lisa and Diana.
