    We talk a lot about binge eating in this podcast, but this episode is dedicated to our experiences with bulimia – how it looked, how it felt, and how it was different from binge eating disorder. We’ll discuss:

    • What is bulimia?
    • Purging as an aggressive emotional expression
    • Purging as a perceived boundary against binge eating
    • Bulimic behavior feeling like defiance for Stef versus collapse for Sarah
    • The addictive nature of purging
    • How recovery looked for Sarah v Stef

    • Sarah’s embarrassment of her self critic versus Stef’s comfort with her own
    • Binges as a criticism of being “out of control”
    • Identifying as a Critic or not
    • Does your critic speak in first person or in third?
    • Our various “best selves” ebb and flow
    • Do we need support to leave our critic?
    • Practical tools for dealing with our inner critic

One of THE best podcasts for disordered eating & eating disorder recovery!!!

Look no further! Stephanie and Sarah are two of the most insightful, real and relatable hosts that you will come across in the eating disorder/disordered eating recovery space. I’m a 46 yo mother of 3 young girls and I’ve struggled with bulimia since I was 16. I’m 4 months into my recovery and after scouring the airways for podcasts, reading all the books on Anti-Diet, Haes and ED recovery, and doing anything I can to support my journey, I can say that Life After Diets is one of my absolute favorite tools in my recovery arsenal! Thanks to both of you for your honesty, wit and intellect. Listening to you while I take my morning walk is one of the best forms of self care I have at the moment. I truly feel seen! Thank you thank you thank you!

Amazing

loving this podcast ..a refreshing free-ing take on how to approach food and how different diets just trap us and make us continually unhappy with ourselves..and the binge restrict cycle..some episodes go into more detail about intuitive eating and dealing with binge urges..I hope they continue to do many more episodes :)

Really lovely listen! Great facts and advice.

I'm just making my way through these podcasts after hearing about Sarah on a Google search. I was really happy to discover a podcast and see the titles of the episodes and how much they resonate with me and my experience. I've read lots of things over the years which have helped tremendously but I think these ladies are the final pieces of my puzzle. They are both really inspiring and have come from a place where they each know their own struggles with binge eating that I can relate and learn from. I'm also listening to Sarah's book on YouTube which is fab. I've struggled with the control i have around food for years. I've lost weight but found the brain impulses still to be so strong on a daily basis. I'm now taking time to get to know myself again and make connections between my psychology and physiology so that I can make peace with myself. Thanks very much ladies - keep believing in yourselves and what you're doing.

This podcast has had such a positive impact on me!

Sarah and Steph share their stories and experiences, exploring different topics each episode. I can't tell you how many 'lightbulb' moments I've had while listening to it, there are just far too many to count!! As someone with an eating disorder diagnosis and my own food struggles it's hard to find people who truly knows what it's like. Listening to this podcast has given me a chance to not just reflect on my journey so far but to also understand it better, to know my thoughts and feelings are shared and 'normal'. I feel like I'm part of a bigger conversation and it's given me hope, support, a greater appreciation for how far I've come and most importantly to me, helped me explore aspects of my journey that I hadn't considered before. Thanks to this podcast I've even pinpointed where and when it all began! Thank you both for sharing so much of yourselves, you'll probably never really know the extent of the impact you're having!
