Description

The holidays are especially difficult for people with eating disorders, as so much of family gathering revolves around food. Binge eating, starving, and the stress that comes with having to confront the relation to food in conjunction with the scrutiny of family and friends is detailed with actress, activist, and author of The Actor’s Diet, Lynn Chen. Even going the extra distance of connecting the ethnic issues that accompany food and eating disorders from her own Chinese background, interviewer Leslie Durso hosts this talk on TheLipTV. GUEST BIO: Actress, blogger, and activist Lynn Chen is an ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association and has appeared on tv, radio, and print promoting a balanced healthy lifestyle.
