Episode 39: Lex Daddio’s Healing Journey with An Eating Disorder
Did you know that 91% of women are displeased with their bodies? An eating disorder displays behaviors that negatively impact one’s physical, psychological, and social well-being. These behaviors are persistent, and they are often associated with emotional distress.
In honor of Eating Disorder Awareness Week, I sat down with Lex Daddio to discuss eating disorders and her recovery from orthorexia. Orthorexia is a dysfunctional eating pattern based on the need to eat healthy foods to the extent that one becomes obsessed with this way of life.
Lex Daddio is a wife & mama of 2 little boys living in Richmond, VA. She’s been the face behind @daddioskitchen (previously @restoring_radiance) for almost eight years. Her Instagram page began as a food diary when she struggled with an eating disorder. It led to a journey of healing, lots of new life transitions, and now it’s a place where she and her husband share lots of fun recipes and real life. Her husband Thomas cooks and Lex bakes, and together they create delicious recipes to feed their family and yours!
Listen in as we talk to learn more about:
- Lex shares her journey with battling an eating disorder and her relationship with food.
- Celebrating small victories during recovery.
- How to overcome setbacks?
- The importance of a healthy body image and positive self-talk.
- Practical advice on having a healthy relationship with food.
**If you are experiencing an eating disorder, please get professional help. I assure you. You will not regret it.**
