Clinical Psychologist and author Dr Jen
Bateman (nee Nash, pictured), who also
has Type 1 diabetes, has focused her
career on disordered eating habits for
people with diabetes but also anyone
else. She says, "Now that many of us
are living and working in new ways, with
huge changes to our daily schedule,
commitments and time, I'd like to support
you in your relationship with food over
the coming weeks to let you know that
the health, wellbeing and freedom you
are looking for is possible even in these
circumstances. The series includes both
written articles and YouTube videos
so you can make use of them in
whatever way suits you. If you're able
to get out for a daily walk, it may be an
accompaniment to listen along in your
earphones and inspire you as you go."
