Autumn is a magical time of year – the days are crisp, leaves are crimson and gold, the smells of cider and cinnamon fill the air, and pumpkins and decorative corn stalks can be found around every corner. With that being said, fall is the perfect time to stock up on some yummy and nutritious staples.
Pumpkins: Few things say autumn more than pumpkins, but did you know that this fall favorite is also chock full of nutrients? Pumpkin is an excellent source of potassium and vitamin A, which are important nutrients for healthy hair, skin, and nails. Opt for sugar pie or baby bear pumpkins – they are smaller and sweeter, and better for baking and cooking. Make your own pumpkin puree and toss into baked goods such as pies, scones, or cookies.

Today I want to talk about some of the effects that an individual may experience due to the lack of nourishment that comes from an eating disorder. Not only does malnutrition cause physical effects and changes, but the brain is also being deprived, causing numerous mental and emotional responses as well.
This list is not all encompassing, but I hope it begins to give you a sense of the severity eating disorders involve.
1. COGNITIVE CAPACITY.
Eating disorders and malnourishment have a profound effect on cognitive function. The ability to concentrate, focus, and process information dramatically declines as health deteriorates.

Look around. People are trying to improve their diet. Some people are trying to eat “better” because they see their weight steadily increasing. For others, they want to start eating more wholesome foods to prevent chronic diseases. And, for others, they recognize that their eating is very disordered and restrictive and they want to get back to more “normal” eating.
You probably have a friend, colleague and/or family member who has confided in you about their goal to improve their diet. And likely, you want to help. But how? No one teaches us how to be supportive and relying on our instincts can sometimes do more harm than good. Think about the following scenarios and ask yourself if this sounds like the kind of support you would want if you were trying to improve your health?...
