Once I moved away from home and started college, I developed a newfound love for healthy eating and exercising. In hindsight, I think this developed from a desire to be thinner, to look like (or better than) all these college girls I was around. So having stemmed from a place of insecurity, my health journey quickly turned into an unhealthy obsession. Eventually I found myself trapped in a vicious cycle of disordered eating, very restrictive diets, and a genuine fear of particular foods. Throughout my four years of undergrad, I struggled with these things and eventually identified with being orthorexic, a term used to describe obsessive and radical behavior in pursuit of a healthy diet and "perfect" physical appearance. As my habits grew stronger, I began believing even more the lies of what society determines as healthy, fit and beautiful.
Recovering from something like this is extremely tough, as some of you may know. Although I am thankful for my journey and my past that has helped me discover the truth about health, the strength within myself, and the importance of living holistically, it could have been avoided or prevented if I had access to the correct information, a true and proven guide / example of healthy living and a comprehensive knowledge of what health and wellbeing really looks like.
I’m thankful for my experiences and how I have grown because of them. I’ve learned and gained a beautiful perspective and appreciation for food as fuel for my body. And now I'm able to help hundreds of other women who are burdened by food rules, societal expectations, a perfectionist mentality, and fad diets to live a very healthy, very balanced, very happy life - free from the restrictions of food and negative body image. Our bodies are given to us so that we may take care of them and nurture them in order to live our best lives. This approach is what drives me to help and encourage young women in their wellness journey.
