Whitney Trotter RN RD is here to talk about the ways we must start revolutionizing eating disorder care, to do no harm when caring for marginalized identities. Whitney is both a registered nurse and registered dietitian, an anti-diet practitioner, and an advocate for social justice reform in eating disorder treatment. We talk about how her work has evolved, how traditional and standard ED treatment norms fall short, how we can foster confidence with flexible eating, and how cultural cuisine shouldn’t be a special ‘challenge’ meal. We also get real about how we can avoid putting “anti-diet” care in a close-minded box.
