Old School Food Freedom

Hello, Freedom! How Taylor Coote Broke Free from OSFED

By July 17, 2023July 27th, 2023No Comments

In another moving installment of our “Hello, Freedom! Summer Road Trip” series, FINDINGbalance Grant Writer, Taylor Coote, shares how God led her to freedom from the bondage of ‘Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorder’ (OSFED), a clinical category used to describe a variety of disordered eating behaviors that do not meet all the diagnostic criteria for a specific eating disorder.

In this episode, Taylor describes how dysfunctional childhood experiences created an opening for the enemy to sneak in with lies about her worth and identity as a daughter of the King.

Find out how God showed up for Taylor in the middle of the road, how her college counselor helped her find treatment, the role her boyfriend-turned-husband played in supporting her through treatment and recovery, and the commitment she has made to break the generational curse of diet culture!
