Thank you for your message, Jessica. It's fantastic to hear that you are exploring this topic while pursuing your studies. There is just not enough yet known or discussed about these disorders and their impact within the fitness and physiotherapy worlds. We've got to keep the conversation going!

This is an article I picked out for a Nutrition-based fitness assignment. I have found it very helpful, as I am in the earlier stages of my college education for Personal Training. It reinforces a lot of the reasons why I decided to become a PT and it will make my time at school that much more enjoyable with a bit of knowledge I didn't have before. Thanks!
