Episode 5 - Unicorns, binge eating and a gastric bypass
In this episode, my guest is Fenna, a dear friend of mine. She's a very funny, creative, open-minded person who's always trying to help. The reason I wanted Fenna on the show is because she had her struggles with weight, body image, binge eating and a couple of years ago, she's had a gastric bypass.
We've been preparing this interview and we've talked for a few hours. So I know today's talk is going to be good and packed with insights!
