In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk to Chris Hague about eating disorders in athletics with a focus on high school and college athletes.

But eating disorders within the male athletic population is real and the stigma needs to be let go so these boys and men can stop slipping through the cracks. This is an important show for every athlete, student, parent, teacher and coach out there to listen to. Please share this episode so those in need can get the help they deserve.
