This week: Pros and cons of the 80-10-10 diet, signs of disordered eating, liquid smoke, and more

My guest on last week’s show was psychologist Dr. Ellen Hendricksen, who gave us 9 signs of disordered eating and four tips for those who suspect that their relationship to food is not as healthy as it could be.  Great stuff, as always from the Savvy Psychologist!
