Constance Rhodes – an expert on helping women with eating disorders, Constance provides valuable insight and experience for those who are struggling with their body image and self esteem. According to statistics, 3 out of 4 women have an unhealthy relationship with food, here are some of the takeaways from our interview with Constance.
|Food doesn’t need to be treated with moral values – it’s not”good” or “bad” it’s just food –|
|Most eating disorders begin in the pre-teen or tween years and go into adulthood|
|Dads should be careful to affirm their daughters importance and value beyond their appearance or looks.|
|Parents need to be aware and active in understanding how their kids feel about food and their physical appearance|
