“Eating disorders can start at any age and a lot of it has to do with the people around you, what they expect out of you, your acceptance in society and how you have been raised.” How does one overcome an eating disorder? How should we react to people suffering from an eating disorder? Join Zain Calcuttawala and Avanti Malhotra as they talk to the Founder of State of Mind -The Emotional Wellness Center, Ishita Pateria about eating disorders and understanding them.

Notes:

  • There was a long ten day gap between starting and finishing, because a sales conference completely disrupted my podcast listening. What is there.
  • I think Zain and Avanti showed their age when they were so utterly disgusted with Instagram yoga accounts and #wellness #cleaneating. Not so much because they were disgusted, but because they were so openly dismissive.
  • I am conflicted on the idea that wanting to exert control on the food you eat is a disorder; and this may very well be because I do it myself. But in general, being prudent or temperate about what you eat is a virtue, as in everything else; and as in everything else, it will become a vice when taken to excess or untempered by other virtues. Still… I feel that Ishita Pateria could have been better about talking about if and when there is a boundary crossed between merely being in control and being in obsessive control.
  • The point about “Well, what is good enough?” as a response to “I’m not good enough” (or am I confusing it with the next episode – but they did mention “What is your goal body” as a response to “I don’t like my body”) was very useful – and I feel that this may help draw that boundary. If you know what you’re going for, exercising control isn’t necessarily a disorder. Maybe?
