I'm excited to sit down with Michelle Hurn. We talk about eating disorders, and much more. Make sure to listen to the full interview to learn more.

Michelle Hurn is a registered and licensed dietitian with eleven years of experience as a clinical, acute care dietitian, lead dietitian in psychiatric care, and outpatient dietitian. Michelle is an avid endurance athlete, she has qualified for the Boston Marathon 12 times, and on November 7th 2020, she recently won her first ultra marathon covering 44.63 miles in a 6 hour timed race. 

While practicing inpatient and outpatient care in the hospital setting, Michelle discovered a disheartening connection between the high carbohydrate, low fat, “sugar in moderation,” nutrition guidelines she was required to teach, and the rapidly declining health of her patients. 

We discuss the following:

  • All about Michelle Hurn
  • Carbohydrates
  • Anorexia study
  • How long it takes to heal from an eating disorder
  • Mental health and eating disorders
  • Foods recommended by eating disorder facilities
  • Impact of studies on the keto carnivore community
  • Children's book
  • Dietary changes 
  • Where to find Michelle Hurn
