The Katie Couric Show, 5-14-2013. Could You Have A Hidden Eating Disorder?
Dr Maine recently appeared on the Katie Couric show to discuss the epidemic of disordered eating and our obsessions related to appearance, weight, exercise, and dieting. Katie and Dr. Maine spoke with Mika Brezinski, MSNBC co-host of Morning Joe, and author of “Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction — And My Own” which quotes Dr. Maine extensively.
On the show, Dr. Maine explained the many forms of disordered eating including orthorexia nervosa, an excessive preoccupation with healthy food that can lead to binging and serious psychological and physical problems and also answered questions about how to talk to your children about food, weight, and body image without triggering disordered eating and body image concerns.
