Can you be both vegan and working on recovering from an Eating Disorder? This presentation will explore the relationship between plant-based diets, orthorexia and anorexia. While many clients will do better on a omnivore diet, it is possible to counsel clients who wish to remain vegan and work on their recovery. This webinar will touch on various diets of restriction and how they overlap with eating disorder recovery as well as provide tools for dietitians working with these special populations.
