Body Empowerment Series

watch the SERIES

Recovered since 2004 from a 10-year long eating disorder, Caroline Rothstein has been sharing her experience as a public speaker and advocate for over a decade. She has been a resource person for The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associate Disorders (ANAD) since 2000, speaking about her struggle and recovery, and supporting patients and loved ones of those suffering with eating disorders.

In 2008, Caroline began the “Body Empowerment“ video series on YouTube to expand conversation about eating disorder recovery and positive body image. She posts new episodes on the first and third Mondays of every month, and welcomes viewers’ questions, comments, and ideas in this ongoing dialogue. Additionally, she runs the “Body Empowerment” Tumblr blog, which includes her personal work and related links by others that promote eating disorder prevention, recovery, and positive body image.
