EMERGENCY SERIES, EPISODE 1: Coping with the food landscape during a pandemic, with Hope Virgo

Hello! We are back for an emergency series of Body Cons to help you navigate diet culture, the changing food landscape, anxiety and all the other things that may be triggering bad body image during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each episode has been recorded remotely so please excuse the less than perfect sound quality.

Today we discuss coping with the changing food landscape and routines while in recovery from eating disorders and disordered eating, with award winning mental health campaigner and author Hope Virgo.
