Nourishing Women Podcast

Nov 1, 2022

If you’re interested in gut health, you likely have seen on social media the crazy amount of information you “should” do to heal your health. Eating the right foods, avoiding inflammatory foods, taking a million supplements and more, it seems like the list of things you should do is never ending! I asked gut health and eating disorder expert, Marci Evans, to come on the show to help you understand how malnourishment plays a role in your gut health, and why recovery is the answer most of the time.


Marci identifies as a Food and Body Imager Healer® practicing from a weight inclusive and anti-oppression lens. She has dedicated her career to counseling, supervising, and teaching in the field of eating disorders. She is a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian and Supervisor and certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. In addition to her group private practice, Marci launched an online eating disorders training platform for clinicians in 2015 and co-directs a specialized eating disorder internship at Simmons University. In 2018 she received the Professional Integrity Award from The Behavioral Health Dietetics Practice Group of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She has spoken locally and nationally at numerous conferences and media outlets. She regularly communicates on social media so be sure to connect with her @marciRD.


In this episode we discuss:

  • What ignited Marci’s passion for eating disorders.
  • The four main reasons digestive issues are so common in the eating disorder population.
  • How the gut brain axis influences how people feel in their bodies, and how they experience their digestive symptoms.
  • How the gut microbiome is impacted by eating disorders and malnourishment.
  • Why it’s so important to only give recommendations based off the actual gut health research we have available (aka why you shouldn’t follow the advice you hear on TikTok).
  • How Marci lives wellness without obsession.
