DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH OVEREATING?

For the longest time, food consumed my life. I was OBSESSED with every diet trend — the celery juice craze y’all are sooooo in love with? I would have 100% been on that train a few years back.

I had convinced that the only way that I could be “healthy” was to eat bird food and rock every diet trend in sight (which caused my mental health and bank account to suffer REAL quick), and eating quickly became my least favourite activity because it truly controlled my life.

Not to mention it led to years of yo yo-ing like crazy.

Why I’m so AGAINST the trendy diets and health hacks like celery juice? They more often than not ‘cause our bodies to go into distress and lead to the inverse of our intentions: OVEREATING.

Do you struggle with this too? You are SO not alone.

Now I am NOT saying this is true for everyone on the planet. We ALLLLL have different needs and triggers. But I know my gals, my overachieving all or nothing, yo yo dieter babes. If you’re not that and don’t struggle with this shiz, move on sistah ;) But if this resonates hard core, this episode is for YOU.


Things I tackle in todays episode:

  • How this trend has become so huge without any science backing it up

  • How this craze reflects a lack in critical thinking happening in society

  • The power of the placebo effect

  • My own history overcoming chronic eczema

  • Debunking the myth of this craze

“The food you’re ingesting and is being absorbed by the gut directly impacts your mental health/anxiety in profound ways.”


ANXIETY. OVEREATING.

Two things so many of us struggle with on the daily (I know I’m raising my hands), but they’re treated as SEPARATE issues.

The reality?

The two are SO freaking linked and nobody EVER talks about it. I know I have personally struggled with anxiety for YEARS and it was something that perpetuated my binge eating. I would feel anxiety coming on and I’d turn to pints of Ben & Jerry’s and all the MF chips and dips this gal could stuff in her face to numb my feelings, only to make my anxiety worse...

And the cycle continued.

Can you relate?

Maybe you struggle with both. Maybe you are living with anxiety and it’s taking over your life and you feel constantly overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out. Maybe you’ve tried every diet under the sun and are TIRED of feeling like food is controlling you and you just want to be able to FEEL ENERGIZED and HEALTHY. 

Well, YOU CAN. And it starts here.

Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

  • The 5 major symptoms you might have that can tell you if you’re gut is healthy

  • What healthy poops look like

  • The path out of brain fog/exhaustion

  • How I healed my eczema

  • How to overhaul your gut in just 3 days

  • 3 simple steps to support your gut health you can implement today

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“If you’re not happy with something in your life. Whether it’s your health, your relationships, the way you talk to yourself, the way you prioritize things, your job…literally anything in your life. You are in control. You are at the drivers seat. And you have the power to change your life if you decide to.


Orthorexia.

A word that until a couple of years ago, I had no idea existed, and yet, applied so wholeheartedly to my relationship with fitness for years.

How does fitness fit into your life?

Do you approach it from a place of lack? Working out because you at that cookie and you’re trying to “work it off”? Or because you are trying to get in shape for that big trip so you can look “good in a bikini”?

Or do you approach it as a gift? Something that gives you energy? Brings positivity into your day? Makes you feel confident, happy, vibrant?

Today’s episode dives into the pitfalls of fitness and how to move out of a negative mindset around fitness.

  • What it actually means to be consistent on your health & wellness journey
  • How to show up as your most confident self

  • And so much more!

"If I were to continue on this path doing the things that I do, surrounding myself with the people I do, acting the way I do in my life -- will I in 5 years, in 10 years be happy? If the answer is no, it's time for a change." 

"You're so happy and successful and it seems like you've gotten it all figured out -- how did you do it?!" 

I remember saying this to one of my Instagram friends turned future besties 2 1/2 years ago amidst my quarter life crisis. I was a MESS. Miserable in pretty much every area of my life and I just assumed I was destined to live that way for the rest of my life.

What I didn't realize was that I was the one holding myself back from being the woman I wanted to be.

That I had the power inside myself all along to make a freaking CHANGE in my life. 

And today, I'm sharing the 3 simple things that propelled me into finding my purpose, healing my relationship with food and exercise and creating positive and uplifting relationships in my life. 

Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

  • Why perfectionism stunted my growth
  • The time in my life when I thought there was no hope of anything getting better
  • My journey through binge eating
  • The 7 areas of growth
  • The power of your brain
  • How to move towards pleasure and away from pain, and its importance in achieving your goals
  • The 3 simple steps to adopting a growth mindset
