Eating well hasn’t always come naturally for me. I was asthmatic with horrible digestive issues and always struggled with my weight. As a matter of fact, I began dieting when I was in the 5th grade! As I entered high school, I began to feel the pressure to stay thin. I wanted to be accepted by others and I sent my body on a downward cycle. I suffered with multiple eating disorders that caused my hormones to be unbalanced and I was not eating nourishing or wholesome foods. These decisions ultimately lead me to make the decision between finding a rehabilitation program or taking responsibility for my health and wellbeing. I chose to take control of my life and empowered myself by learning everything I could about nutrition and wellness.
