Amanda Johnson is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, but we don’t talk shop about nutrition in this episode. Instead, we chat about Amanda’s struggle with an eating disorder and her recovery, and how it’s influenced her life. Amanda is passionate about helping people find balance between the body and the mind, and that shines through as we chat.
“In a study of Division 1 NCAA athletes, over one-third of female athletes reported attitudes and symptoms placing them at risk for anorexia nervosa. Though most athletes with eating disorders are female, male athletes are also at risk—especially those competing in sports that tend to place an emphasis on the athlete’s diet, appearance, size, and weight requirements, such as wrestling, bodybuilding, crew, and running.” – From the National Eating Disorders website.
