An Evolutionary Perspective of Anorexia Nervosa (Adapted to Flee Famine Hypothesis PART 1)

Season #3 Episode #28

I am SO excited to be starting a 7-part series all about the Adapted to Flee Famine Hypothesis! A theory by Clinical Psychologist & Evolutionary Biologist Dr. Shan Guisinger, the AFFH takes an evolutionary perspective of Anorexia Nervosa. In this first episode, you'll learn:

  • Why the current definition of Anorexia Nervosa is not comprehensive
  • Why the current stereotype of Anorexia leads to not feeling "sick enough" 
  • My own story with the Anorexia stereotype
  • A brief overview of the Adapted to Flee Famine Hypothesis (AFFH)
  • How illnesses can be seen from different analytical perspectives
