I’ve always had an adversarial relationship with food and my body. Growing up overweight changes how you look at food and yourself. Food goes from being something meant to nourish, sustain and energize you- to something that must be criticized, controlled and put into neat little boxes of “good” and “bad”.
After years of yo-yo dieting and feeling like crap the question I had to ask myself was how do I move forward with weight loss, better health, and more energy from a place that didn’t make me feel bad about myself. That’s when I stumbled into nutritional therapy and it’s played a major role in bringing me back to what I know to be true- We can’t dislike ourselves into better nourishment. We can’t starve ourselves or berate ourselves into better health and healing. We have to work with our bodies, not against them.
And I like to think that finally, after years of thinking that nutrition was about starving myself or obsessively counting calories, I’ve come to a place of deeper understanding of what it means to be nourished.
To me, nutrition is about more than counting calories and micromanaging macronutrients, it’s about a paradigm shift and moving toward optimal health and wellness from a place of nourishment and self-care rather than from a place of deprivation and punishment. We are here to love our bodies, nourish our bodies and through this rebellious act of self-love, we can begin the work of healing.
And that is what I want to help you do! I want you to experience freedom from food-and discover that true, lasting health is not determined by the latest episode of DR. OZ! We are as different on the inside as we are on the outside. Let’s stop comparing ourselves to others and work together to create a plan for you- that supports, nourishes and helps you live a fuller, richer kick-ass life!
I help women change the way they look at food, how they nourish their bodies and what it means to be healthy.
