Show Notes

This episode comes with a trigger warning – we will be talking about topics like anorexia, bulimia and mental health.

Monica Kade is a writer and podcaster who has been featured in some major websites and publications. But her most recent achievement is a much more personal affair. You see, she has recently released a book that is all about her fight with poor body image, self-judgement, and eating disorders.

Tune into this episode to hear about:

  • Why eating disorders are even more of a problem than we think in Australia
  • How eating disorders can start at a very young age
  • How Monica overcame both anorexia and bulimia
  • How she “came out” to her friends about her illness, and how she asked for help
  • Why connection was crucial to healing
  • How she learned to love her own body, no matter what
  • The influence of media, culture and Instagram on women’s body image
  • How to tell when a diet is healthy, or if it’s becoming dangerous
  • Her message for mums of teenage girls, or anyone with a loved one going through this

This is a very important topic, so this episode is a must for not only all women, but also anyone who has a daughter.
