National Eating Disorders Awareness Week – Blog Post from Julie Duffy Dillon RD, CEDRD

Recognizing Eating Disorders Awareness Week this week with a featured blog post each day. Today’s post comes from Julie Duffy Dillon RD, CEDRD. Here’s my favorite line from it:

“When approaching someone you think may have an eating disorder, avoid using words that would describe the person’s physical appearance like sickly, skinny, bloated, and weak. These tend to promote shame rather than motivate. I have never heard a person say these body comments motivated them to seek help.”
