In this episode of Meat and Three, we are trying to move beyond western medical definitions, and thinking outside the box to better understand disordered eating. Disordered eating has a history of visibility as a negative disease, and largely impacting a small population. Historically, young, white women and girls are depicted in the media and in literature with eating disorders. However, the phenomenon of disordered eating, which we’re using here to mean “eating outside of the norm” contains far more nuance in who and how it is actually experienced. We’re diving into the nuance soup to explore what a Girl Dinner is and could mean, a medical anthropologist's perspective on intuitive eating, and the impact of fad diets and social media on our collective psyches.
