Mar 22, 2016, 10:05 AM

Today, we talk about a condition that 30 million people in the U.S. struggle with.

That’s right, Girlienation, 30 MILLION.

It’s a topic that proves how impressionable we are from a very young age.

Eating disorders are more common than people think...yet so difficult to spot at times.

It all starts with self-image. We all have that one body part that we feel self-conscious about. That disapproval drives us crazy, and we start looking for ways (healthy or not) to change it.

In this show, SueB Zimmerman a.k.a. The Instagram Expert joins us to talk about her entrepreneurial journey and shares (for the first time ever) her story about her battle with an eating disorder.

We are also joined by Claire Mysko, CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association, who shares some eye-opening facts about this devastating condition (along with ways to detect and treat it).

This episode is jam packed with valuable information, so make sure to listen ‘til the very end.

What you’re gonna hear:
