Hello, and welcome to this episode of SBS Radio.

In this episode, I’m talking to Jens Andersen of Run Repeat dot com. Jens founded RunRepeat.com to help you find your next pair of running shoes in a neutral, unbiased and transparent way. Every month +1 million runners visit RunRepeat.com and take advantage of their 0-100 Runscore that summarizes opinions from experts and users into one simple score for each model of running shoe.

We’re discussing:

  • recent hypes and the future of running shoes,
  •  what makes a popular running shoe, and/or a good running shoe (not the same!)
  • general running shoe advice - how often to buy, what to buy, what to avoid, buy online vs local etc
  • some of the studies Jens and the team did on marathon running

Welcome to this week’s SBS Radio episode - My Life With Anorexia.

A report in 2015 estimated that more than 725,000 people in the UK are affected by an eating disorder, with roughly 75-90% of those being female.

BEAT, a UK-based eating disorder charity, estimates that of those with eating disorders, 10% were anorexic, 40% were bulimic and the rest fall into the EDNOS category which included BED.

Concrete statistics are hard to come by - but what is clear is that eating disorders can be devastating, are on the rise, and are still not very well-understood. Whilst this podcast episode is by no means going to be a comprehensive guide to anorexia, I wanted to have an open, candid discussion with a couple of people regarding their experiences with anorexia and other eating disorders.

First, we have Polly Hale of the Fit Mum Formula, who was hospitalised 3 times between the ages of 18 and 22 due to her anorexia. In the second half of the podcast we’ll hear from Matt Stranberg, a registered dietitian and strength and conditioning specialist who currently is working with the Walden GOALS programme, who treat competitive athletes experiencing disordered eating behaviours.

I just wanted to thank her for being so candid and open with me. What you’re about to hear covers a particularly painful part of Polly’s life - so her willingness to discuss it on record doesn’t go unnoticed.
