The F.R.E.E.D. Speaking Tour
On The F.R.E.E.D. Speaking Tour, Kathleen MacDonald shares her empowering story of overcoming a 16 year long battle with disordered eating, bulimia, anorexia, exercise bulimia, and body dislike. Her presentation offers an intimate look into the journey of recovering from these issues without glamorizing the horrendous efforts that she and so many others undertake in an attempt to achieve the “perfect body”.
Kathleen speaks practically, to dispel the oftentimes enigmatic perceptions of “eating disorders” and addresses the societal complacency of dieting and body dislike that ravages the lives of so many women and men on college campuses nationwide. She delivers a message of hope that it IS possible to truly love your body, as well as a message of urgency for a call to action to address eating and body image disorders at all levels of severity. Countless people have shared that as a result of hearing Kathleen’s story they have uncovered courage to seek help and healing from their own battles of body image and disordered eating issues. Kathleen’s presentations also address: media influence on bodies and self-esteem, signs and symptoms of eating and body image issues, exercise abuse, ways to help a friend or loved one who might be suffering, how to get help, eating disorder activism, and more.
