In this episode Meredith and I have the opportunity of speaking with Dr. Ralph Carson, RDN, CEDRD for a full hour and a half. Dr. Carson provides more of a presentation with question and answers towards the end. The focus of this podcast is bridging the gap between healthcare recommendations and focus of weight loss vs the recommendations by eating disorders professionals which is often "let go of weight loss" to repair your relationship with food and body. Dr. Carson feels that both are discussing "two sides of the same coin" and feels ED treatment and obesity medicine do not have opposing agendas. Dr. Carson also reviews perspectives of the Corona Virus and "weight" connection.
We encourage you to listen to the podcast more than once as this is pack full of information. Dr. Carson first starts with the perspective and "view point" of the medical community and then dives into the recommendations and focus of the eating disorders community. Finally Dr. Carson discusses how we might "bridge the gap." Meredith and Jill have a brief discussion after with various perspectives.
