SBS Insight: The Health Obsession

Last week SBS Insight covered an important topic that we experience regularly with many of our clients at BodyMatters- when the innocent “pursuit of health” becomes dangerous. So many of our clients developed disordered eating when attempts increase health giving behaviour actually did the opposite. Quite simply, what often starts out as restricting foods for “health benefits” ultimately develops into disordered eating and for some, life threatening eating disorders. If you missed the show you can view it here. Our Psychologist Sarah had the opportunity to discuss a number of important issues on the show, including how public health campaigns targetting the “obesity epidemic” impact further on this.

Sarah subsequently caught up with Jenny Brockie to continue this discussion on SBS Insight Facebook Live– you can watch the video here.
