Episode 265: It’s not a secret that Madelyn Moon suffered from disordered eating and body dysmorphia for years. Her story has been featured in many podcasts and mainstream publications—just Google search “Madelyn Moon and disordered eating” and a whole host of options appear. However, how she currently feels about her body/food/exercise is not something she’s discussed for a bit, so this episode is an inside glimpse into where she’s at on her journey in that arena.
She doesn’t just tiptoe around this body image topic in this episode either—she lets you know exactly what her workouts and food choices look like now. She answers your burning questions, including—do you still struggle with disordered eating? Are your workouts planned? How is your diet structured? How do you go into the real world and date?
Even though this is an old topic for her and something she’s discussed a million times, this episode is a fresh take on where she’s at now and is not to be missed if you’ve struggled with a poor body image.
