109: Recovery When You're Hell-Bent on Not Recovering

Jennifer Ball struggled with an eating disorder for many years. Her struggle morphed from restriction to bingeing and everywhere in between. When she sought treatment, she was ready to tackle her struggles with bingeing, but she was hell-bent on maintaining her restriction behaviors.

This is a fascinating look at something we don't talk about enough with eating disorder treatment—the fact that bingeing and restricting are both worth recovering from. And, restriction is often what is behind bingeing. So, if you're unwilling to work on your restriction, chances are very good that you will continue to struggle with bingeing.

Jennifer talks in this episode about what finally clicked and how she went from hell-bent to not recovery to full-blown eating disorder recovery advocate.
