My Guest Blog for College Lifestyles

Recently, I was asked to write a guest post for the blog College Lifestyles dealing with the topic of disordered eating and going home for summer break.

College Lifestyle’s executive director, Shelly Marie Redmond, MS, RD, LDN, contacted me and I was beyond flattered — she is also the author of Eat Well and Be Fabulous, A Guide for the Modern Day Woman.

My article, “Keeping Disordered Eating at Bay on Summer Break,” offers tips for college students on how to handle going back home, but the advice is applicable to lots of situations and certainly transcends just going home for summer break.

I’d love to hear what you have to say after reading my tips. Is there anything you would add if you were writing the post?

Guest Post at Run4Change

Fellow blogger and blog reader Jason at Run4Change— who has lost an astounding amount of weight through running and Weight Watchers and has a blog devoted to healthy living — asked me to write a guest post for his blog.
