My (lesser known) Story:
I have always been interested in health and cooking - from an early age (about 12 or so), I used to tear articles from magazines and file them in food and fitness categories. This doesn’t mean to say that I have always been healthy.
As with many girls… I was impressionable. I felt that I should look like the slim and “perfect” women in the magazines. And as my food intake fluctuated, so did my weight and my confidence. What I didn’t foresee was the impact that these fluctuations were having on my digestion, hormones, and stress; and the vicious cycle of hormone imbalance; weight gain and illness that I was perpetuating. I felt like I was doing everything “right” but getting bad results.
The good news, especially for foodies like me, is that you can feel amazing and transform your health without compromising on the joy of food!
I’m all about creating good habits, and eating food that tastes amazing that is equally amazing for you.
