Synopsis:

Professional athletes gain or lose potentially millions of dollars based on the way their body looks and performs. But what happens when the pursuit of perfection shipwrecks your life? Patrick Devenny walks us through how he suddenly found himself — a six foot, three inch, muscled, and fine tuned athlete — facing a diagnosis of bulimia… and how he was able to find a way out. Along the way we talk with Rebecca McConville, a registered dietician, board certified sports specialist, eating disorder clinician and cohost of the podcast Phit for a Queen.
