This week, Danika Miller from iselinandhale.com joins me again to talk about a more serious topic – disordered eating. Danika talks about what it’s like to feel like you’ve lost control of everything in your life and don’t know what to do next. She talks about her experience at her last job in fashion photography and shares what it’s like to have to edit fashion models and morph their bodies. We talk about how editing girls’ bodies and losing her job prompted her to have some disordered thoughts around eating. We talk about losing weight, gaining weight, and why people restrict to feel like they have control. We talk about how restricting your food just harms you in the long run and comes from a place of hate towards yourself, rather than a place of love. You are beautiful just the way you are, and you deserve to show yourself love by nourishing your body – not depriving it. We also talk about passive aggressive girls, chronic exercise, and more.
