The Body Myth – 14-Years Recovered from Binge-Eating Disorder ft. Ronni Robinson

Brooke Warner

Ronni Robinson joins The Body Myth for a conversation about being 14-years recovered from binge eating disorder and how she came to understand that the love she was missing during her childhood was what she was for decades trying to replace with food, her passion for helping others find their self-worth, and her memoir “Out of the Pantry” chronicling her 30 years of binge eating and compulsive overeating.


Ronni is a member of the Sandwich Generation; she’s the tired lunch meat layered between two college-age children and aging parents.

She is a writer and indoor cycling instructor who lives in Eastern Pennsylvania, where she lives with her husband in their second year of empty nesting, as both kids are off to college.

Ronni’s passion is helping others who are struggling with eating disorders. She also does public speaking about eating disorders and emotionally abusive relationships.

“Out of the Pantry” is Ronni’s debut memoir, chronicling her 30 years of binge eating and compulsive overeating, and her journey to recovery.
