Dr. Beth (www.drbetherickson.com) first spoke with a woman who had been subject to physical and emotional abuse by her son’s father, Denise Martin (www.eatingmywaytoheaven.com). She requested Dr. Beth’s help to break the destructive cycle of her guilt and rage. And by golly, she did it right on the air! Then Dr. Beth spoke with dietician, Melanie Jatsek, author of Healthy You, about how diets don’t work and what Melanie suggests instead. Much to her shame, Melanie developed an eating disorder that she feared would ruin her career. Instead, people have repeatedly expressed empathy for her.
