I have always had a passion for healthy eating and nourishing my body, but throughout my schooling to become a dietitian, I noticed I was not feeling my best. I was constantly fatigued, having stomach issues, unmotivated and feeling physically drained. I was going to school to become a dietitian yet felt confused as to how I was supposed to help others feel their best when I was feeling my worst. I started questioning if I made the right decision to become a dietitian and felt like I was missing something.
That’s when I came across the book Intuitive Eating and everything started to “click” for me. I had been sticking to the textbook definition of health and had not learned to fully trust and listen to my own body’s needs. I started eating more often, including a variety of foods, and truly listening to my body and soon started feeling like a better version of myself. I found that health is much more than just “clean” eating and exercise, but has many aspects that I was ignoring for far too long. I knew this was exactly where I was meant to be--helping others find food freedom and feel their best.
I believe you have the internal knowledge of how to make the changes necessary to reach a fulfilling life with less obsession around food and I would love to guide you along the way.
