Heidi Schauster is a nutrition therapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in eating disorders and emotional eating problems. She is also the author of Nourish, a book that aims to guide readers in transforming their eating habits into something positive and self-loving. In addition to nutrition counseling, she provides consultations and lectures in schools and professional groups on the topic of disordered eating.


Heidi joins me today to discuss the concept of disordered eating and how it continues to physically and emotionally damage teens and adults alike. She explains the causes of eating disorders as well as why not everyone who has an issue with food has an eating disorder. She also describes how a person can shift from a negative outlook on food to a positive one, and why punishing yourself because of bad eating habits will only make things worse.



“There's a danger in trying to eat perfectly.” - Heidi Schauster
