Advice on if you’re worried that a friend might have a disordered relationship with food:

— Offer the friend support, but don’t jump to judgments
— Mental illness, compare to broken leg; can’t be like “oh my god, they broke their leg again” (remember it’s a medical condition)

Food rules that trigger a “last-meal” mentality:

— This is a “bad food,” + tomorrow you’ll have no more of that food → triggers a binge [you feel like it’s being taken away] — Like a long-distance relationship, you miss them most of the time + when you see them you want to be with them nonstop/all over them [versus a live-in relationship that is less-intense]

Advice they would give their college selves:

— Be free + have the most fun you can
— Have more fun!
