When I talk about health confusion, dieting, bingeing and emotional eating, it’s from personal experience.
It wasn’t long ago that I was totally disconnected from my own body.
At about age 14, I discovered diets. And for the following few years, diets and weight obsession controlled my life. I became a chronic fad dieter, and within a short period of time, I was verging on a serious eating disorder.
I was buried in low self-esteem. I lost too much weight, too quickly and then my weight would yo-yo for years. Since I could never maintain the ‘perfect’ diet or ‘ideal’ weight, I was caught in a toxic cycle.
