The financial implications of anorexia nervosa – that’s what today’s podcast is about. We all know that anorexia nervosa is a serious eating disorder with potentially deadly consequences, but what you may not know is that it also has some very real financial implications.
In this episode of the Hard Money Talks show, we’ll take a closer look at some of the costs associated with anorexia nervosa and how they can impact both the individual sufferer and their loved ones. We’ll also discuss some ways to get help if you or someone you know is struggling with this illness.
I brought Erin Reiland on the show this week, who is recovering from Anorexia and is also a certified eating disorder and mental health coach. She writes over at inbodylovecoaching.com. where she helps guide her clients on how to a Life FREE of Food/Body Obsessions.
Eating disorders themselves are a hard topic to talk about, but she shares the intimate details of how someone with an eating disorder gets in trouble with money. This episode was an eye-opener for me and I know you will really enjoy it!

Let’s break this down a little further:
There are many other eating disorders, one being binge eating disorder which can include overspending on food. So why do you overeat AND overspend you may ask? It isn’t possible to pinpoint one simple reason for this link. Among the causes I’ve seen suggested are overeating because of the stress of being in debt, difficulty buying healthful food with limited income, or an inability to delay gratification in both spending and eating.
