No fiction. Only the facts…

Our article library is designed to equip you with evidence-based facts about nutrition, eating issues, body image and recovery. We never promote diets or specific eating plans, and recommend you work one-on-one with a nutritionist if that is something you are looking for. You can find great ones by accessing our Treatment Finder, where you can also find Christian counselors and treatment programs to fit your recovery and wellness goals.
