I️ absolutely loved getting to know Mel. As soon as we got on the podcast, we were like, "Hey! You're the British version of me and I'm the Canadian version of you!" She doing incredible things over in the UK with the body image and relationship to food movement. She's an absolutely incredible human. Mel had a seven year battle with eating disorders and in this episode we talked about how she recovered and how she had to accommodate everything in her life to serve her eating disorder. Her and I️ both talked about how we used vegetarianism and veganism as a way to mask our disordered eating. I️ didn't realize I️ was doing that until I️ realized I️ was doing that. This conversation was full of honesty, really asking yourself if that is what you're doing and why you're doing that for other reasons. So we talked about what would your life look like if you never struggled with your eating disorder?
