RD Real Talk - Registered Dietitians Keeping it Real

Jun 2, 2017

Christy Harrison, host of the popular Food Psych podcast, is on the show today! She talks us through the maze of her career, how she eventually went from journalism to registered dietitian, and discovered the world of eating disorder treatment. As always, Christy is refreshingly open and honest about her ED history and how it has influenced her career, now helping her help others. We dive into some hot topics, from food (and other) politics to the ever-present intermittent fasting fad.

In the news:

  • We briefly discuss a study that highlights practices from anorexia that could be used for weight loss. Because, WUT?
  • We discuss intermittent fasting at length—why it’s still a fad, and a recent study done on “metabolically healthy obese adults,” who didn’t need to lose weight in the first place.

Fun fact: Christy does comedy improv in her spare time! Her podcast might not have happened without this unique side-hobby.
