On this episode of UnNiched, we’re talking about eating disorders. Join Andrea as she talks to Tracy Croner about her mission to bring more awareness and acceptance to the issues of mental health and eating disorders. Tracey is a regional marketing manager for Orangetheory Fitness, a former collegiate athlete, and she has struggled with an eating disorder most of her life. In the United States, about 20 million women will have an eating disorder at some point in their lives. And women and girls are twice as likely as men to have an eating disorder. Why?
