I grew up in a small town, then moved to the big city (a couple of them, actually) to become an actor/singer/dancer.
I’m the last person I would have expected to become a nutritionist.
For nearly two decades, food was about fear. I spent most of my life fighting with it, running from it, and ignoring it altogether. If it had nutritional value, I didn’t want anything to do with it. I didn’t cook, or even touch food. Food was the enemy, and I was terrified of it.
When I made the decision to REALLY recover from my eating disorder, I had to make friends with food. I learned to see its value beyond calories and numbers. I learned that food could have benefits for my body AND for my soul. I learned that food didn’t need to be a fight – it was possible to find peace with food. I became a nutritionist to help other people find that same peace.
Food is not a moral issue. It is neither good, nor bad: it’s just fuel.
A calorie is just a calorie: it does not determine your worth.
When food is the enemy, life is about fear and suffering. No one should have to live that way. If you’re ready to stop fighting with food, I’m here to help.
(You’re worth it)
