If you told me in 2013 that I would run a course on food freedom that would literally change people's lives forever I never would've believed you because I was suffering in the confines of food feeling suffocated and healthy all at once.
How is that even possible?
I forced myself to eat so healthy that I would only look forward to "cheat meals" on the weekend which was more like me prepping for a binge all week.
I would throw down food like a mad woman to the point I wouldn't even taste it after the first bite.
I thought this was how healthy people live.
I saw all the fit people on instagram doing it so it must be right.
I read blogs on it it's gotta be worth something
I was coached to do that so it's gotta be the way.
If only I knew then what I know now, I would have found my freedom so much sooner. I wouldn't have fallen for the scary binge patterns or developed fear of foods I loved or missed out on amazing times of life because I couldn't even afford a bite in my plan because I had twisted beliefs.
This wasn't will power, or discipline, or any of what it appeared to be on the outside. It was fear, doubt, and confusion manifested into a sad form of eating habits that although seemingly healthy were shamefully, not.
I was putting myself in this perpetual cycle of restriction restriction binge.
I didn't know it until only almost a year ago or so.
It took a lot of internal work, healing, discover, trial and error, research, reading, behavior change modification, comfort zone expanding, belief shifting, and self love to address the unhealthy relationship I had with food.
True fitness and health shouldn't be restriction and food monitoring and anxiety from meal to meal or around certain foods or fear of gaining fat or not gaining muscle.
It's always about Building More than Just a body.
Your body is BUILT to be an amazing vehicle for your soul.
It's important that we treat it as such.
It is possible to find food freedom AND achieve a healthy lifestyle.
It is possible to make healthy choices AND enjoy treats.
It is possible to feel calm and peaceful around foods.
