Episode #7: Will I keep gaining weight forever?

In this episode, we explore a common fear: the fear of endless weight gain when moving away from dieting, disordered eating, or other restrictive behaviors with food and / or exercise.

We discuss how the body reacts to deprivation (both physiological and psychological), what the science says about set point weight, and what we can learn about energy deficiency from the Minnesota Starvation Study.
