Many external factors, like peer pressure and social iconography, can influence individuals to engage in eating disorders. Other times people fall into eating disorders through an apparent lack of self control – or so it seems to them. There may be much more to the issues though that have less to do with will power and social influence and more to do with body chemistry imbalances. While we definitely, definitely acknowledge the influence of social pressure triggering eating disorders we also want to give due attention to the significance of individual biochemical balance. Listen in to this episode as Tony, Will and Kinna point out common body chemistry imbalances that can trigger and/or perpetuate eating disorders. We’ll highlight what to look for in assessing your own body chemistry and point out some resources and starting steps you can take to restore balance to your body and your eating habits.

Kinna: Socks wearer. Person who makes coconut oil explode everywhere.
Tony: Man, I’m awesome like that.
Kinna: Yeah, yeah.
Tony: Did a little science experiment yesterday and uh,
Kinna: I have 3rd degree burns now.
Tony: Uh huh. That’s fine. It’s a good thing I like coconut oil because it covers the entire kitchen.
Kinna: Uh huh. Now you can just throw some chicken up against the wall when it’s hot and it’ll cook.
Tony: It’ll cook up nicely.
Kinna: All right. We also have with us little hottie patottie, Will Schmidt, today who’s looking nice and tan. Have you been tanning or what?
Will: Uh, I went to the beach over the weekend.
Kinna: Oh okay, okay. He goes to the beach and he gets all dark and I could like stay at the beach for a year and I’d just turn into a big freckle.
Tony: One big freckle.
Will: Yeah, one day.
Kinna: Maybe they’ll all connect though and then I’ll look dark? So, if you haven’t already followed us then what is the defugalty? You need to follow us. That’s an old Texas word. Defugalty.

Kinna: It was?
Tony: I think so. Defugalty?
Kinna: I’m using that word a lot, I guess.
Tony: But if you get word of the day that’s a different one if you can’t remember.
Kinna: Okay. Actually the word of the day could be coconut oil.
Tony: It could or explosion.
Kinna: Explosion exactly. So as long as the explosion isn’t in my pants then I don’t care.
Tony: Yeah, we can move on.
Kinna: So go ahead and follow us right now on Facebook at kick it in the nuts. We’ll post topics that we’ll be doing on future shows and you guys can post any questions you want us to cover in that show and then we’ll cover it if we can.
Tony: So we found out some big news yesterday one of our stars on our upcoming documentary “Why Am I so Fat”, just got named as one of the new trainers on The Biggest Loser.
Tony: So by the time the movie comes out, everybody will know her and then maybe, accidentally everybody’s going to want to see the movie.
Kinna: By the time the movie comes out. It’s been what, 12 years?
Tony: It has been 17 years.
Kinna: I was 4 when we started.
Tony: Right, right. You only weighed 8lbs. then.
Kinna: Yeah, I had to put on weight for the role.
Tony: Uh huh. You’re dedicated. You’re like Tom Hanks.
Kinna: Uh huh. Exactly. So today we’re talking about, what are we talking about? We’re talking about eating disorders. This is a touchy subject with a lot of people.
Tony: It is. It’s a serious subject for a lot of people and people deal with a lot of issues and you know there’s a lot variety. There are different types of eating disorders. You can pick and choose from which one you experience the most.
