In the news, mental health

Diets, weight and mood

Yesterday I attended a fantastic professional development day on eating disorders – I left the session feeling energised and much better equipped to manage my clients who present with eating/weight issues and eating disorders.  I only only to wait a few hours today to put my new knowledge into action as a brave client admitted that she had been engaging in binge and purge behaviour for over 10 years but had never been able to ask for help.  Serendipitously, today I spotted this article which backs up the message I heard loud and clear yesterday – diets are not the answer – healthy eating is – for both physical AND mental health.
