By Wendy Grace, Trainer and Co-Owner, Mission Fitness CenterThere have been several seasons of the ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ TV shows, featuring celebrity trainer Chris Powell, and, sometimes, his wife, Heidi. One of my clients is a fan of the show, and she asked me what I thought. After talking to her, watching an episode, and doing some online research, I’d say there are things to learn from this well-intentioned program, but I also have some concerns.
Lisa Williams had therapist and author, Erica Ives, on her show talking about many aspects of eating disorders. It’s worth giving it a listen, especially if there’s someone you know or suspect to struggle with one but don’t quite know how to reach out.
