Note : Treatment of a diagnosed Eating Disorder needs to be handled by a professional who specializes in eating disorders. As a Dietitian and Health Coach, eating disorders is not my specialty but I'm more than happy to guide you to someone who is. That being said, I love to empower moms with a healthy outlook towards food so that they can have a positive impact at home.
