For many of us, lockdown life has made the food we eat and the meals we plan so very important. But for an increasing number of people, food has become the enemy and an obstacle to achieving ‘perfection’. 

In this episode, we chat to Ashleigh who found herself in the unrelenting grip of anorexia and body dysmorphia in her late teens. Ashleigh talks openly about her experience and how, a decade on, she has taken back control and is now helping others who are struggling with their mental health and wellbeing.
