Eat the Rules with Summer Innanen
I’m joined by Esther Kane, Eating Disorder Psychotherapist. We’re talking about her recovery from Orthorexia, some of the signs and symptoms of Orthorexia, and what helped her to heal.
CW: There are mentions of specific orthorexic behaviours in this episode. Please do what is best for you. You can skip to the 10 minute mark to avoid this part.

In this episode, we talk about:
- How Orthorexia is defined,
- How Esther realized she had Orthorexia and what helped her heal,
- That many of the signs of Orthorexia are normalized,
- That our ageist, misogynistic culture means this impacts older women too,
- Some of the body image struggles that surface in midlife and some of the positives,
- The importance of seeking out purpose in life and having value outside of how you look,
- Plus so much more!
