Jun 23, 2021

Can Religious Fasting ruin your relationship with food and is it safe to do when you have an eating disorder or disordered eating habits? 


Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Emily Fonnesbeck & Rachel have both fasted for religious purposes. In this episode Emily shares her insights on when it's safe (and unsafe) to fast, red flags that are signs to not fast and how to go about it, ways to modify fasting if you need to, how to prepare for a fast to maintain a healthy relationship with food, and how to address any guilt that comes up for you if you are unable to fast.
