Ever wonder what a 30-year wellness journey might look like? Or how a mother's relationship with food can impact a child? Well, in this episode we sit down with Fran (Franny) Stone, Bari's mum to find out! It's no secret that Fran's disordered relationship with food resulted in Bari's dietitian qualifications - but what did that journey look like?
Fran is a retired chef (an ironic career choice we discuss) who spent a majority of her life trying to be 'thinner'. Some key topics we discuss are:
- what it was like to have an eating disorder over 30 years ago
- how diagnosis and treatment has evolved
- pivotal moments as a mother in regards to food
- Fran and Bari joining Weight Watchers together (circa 2006)
- what Fran's definition of health is NOW and how has that changed
- what came first, the eating disorder or the love for food?
