Jackie Lesser is our guest on the show today to talk publicly for the first time about her struggle with her daughter’s eating disorder. It started when she was told to watch her diet to prevent acne, but as she started to lose weight, she got obsessive about everything she was eating. She would sit at the dinner table in a bad mood and be annoyed at all the things she couldn’t eat. Things got heavy when her daughter kept losing weight until she eventually had to be taken out of high school.
This hits home for many of us. So many people have an eating disorder and, as with many disorders, it’s kept under wraps so you don’t even know that you know people with eating disorders. Even Jani, our lovely host, shares her moments of struggle when she was younger.
Find out how Jackie did to help turn the tides and stop things going from bad to worse.
