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

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

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."
