Some basic facts about nutrition and links to eating distress
Two threads run through the therapeutic work with people with eating distress. One thread is to do with food and the relationship with food, eating, their body and exercise. People with eating distress avidly study information about food and nutrition, yet lack knowledge of basic facts. They often have misconceptions which they believe to be facts. Some education is useful - giving factual information, addressing myths and ascertaining the client's with food. This could be done by a dietician or nutrition consultant. It could also be offered by a counsellor with appropriate knowledge and experience (if the wish for information arises from the client in the relationship).
