In this podcast we talk about the Adapt to Flee Famine Perspective of Anorexia evolution with Shan Guisinger.
The Adapt to Flee Famine Perspective puts forward convincing evidence for the case that Anorexia is an evolved genetic response to times of famine. A migratory response that makes people with the genetic predisposition for Anorexia respond to energy deficit by wanting to exercise more and eat less.
