A Message from Amanda Capritto

After a long battle with disordered eating and compulsive exercise, I realized that the minutia isn't worth it—humans were meant to move and to eat, and you should find ways of doing both that fill you with joy! You should pursue good health, but also pursue happiness and freedom from food constraints.
