The Body Myth – Recovering from Anorexia Nervosa and Setting Boundaries ft. Kimmie Gilbert

Brooke Warner

Kimmie Gilbert joins The Body Myth for a conversation about the effect growing up with a malignant narcissist had on her sense of self, her Anorexia Nervosa journey and recovery, and the difference between body neutrality, body acceptance, and body love/positivity.


Kimmie considers herself a mental health warrior. She survived a decade-long battle with Anorexia Nervosa and a cult disguised as a substance abuse facility in 2013. She is currently pursuing a degree in Clinical Psychology at CSU LA and is a guest on podcasts to share her story of hope, healing, and recovery. In her spare time, she works at a goat yoga facility that services mental health facilities, seniors, and private parties. She is a staunch advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and educates others about the red flags of malignant narcissism.
