Imagine yourself in the role of a Nutrition Counselor and Josephine in your client. Josephine

is a 20-year-old female who is present for an eating disorder not otherwise specified. She

currently teaches salsa lessons at the community college and is in her last semester of

college. She reports she is living at home and the food her mom prepares is not the

healthiest because her mom is from Honduras and her father is from Guatemala, so the

food is prepared differently. She indicates she has been thin all her life, although she has

struggled to maintain her weight since puberty. Since she is a dance instructor, she has to

remain fit. She reports she feels very guilty if she has consumed fried foods during the day,

but since that is the way her mom primarily cooks, she feels awful to tell her mom to stop

cooking that way. She reports if she does consume too much fried foods or junk food, she

will run at least 2-3 miles that day or else force herself to vomit, but all the food does not

come out. She reports sometimes if she has a later class, she will not eat dinner or only eat

1 meal per day. She has tried counting calories, but then she gets so mad at herself for

having more than 1200 calories it causes her to exercise more, which then leads her to

feeling exhausted. She indicates she is on no medication, but does take a multivitamin

when she remembers. She indicates she has gone from 110 pounds to 125 pounds over 5

years and wants to be back down to 110 or even less. She also had gone to the doctor and

he was quite concerned with her lab values. She has provided you a 24 hour meal record:


1-6” corn tortilla

½ cup fried beans cooked with peppers, onions and oil

½ cup rice

1 cup no sugar added orange juice


1 slice of whole wheat bread

2 slices turkey

1 small apple


2- 6” tortillas

Beef with onions, peppers cooked in oil

Tomato, onion, pepper salad (made with oil and lime juice)

2 cups of rice

Height: 5’2” Weight: 117 pounds (based on your scale in the office)
