Real Talk: When I Talk About Health Confusion, Dieting, Bingeing & 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. It was stressful and exhausting. Food governed my life in an unhealthy way. I had developed a restrictive mentality toward food.  I was immersed in a tormenting cycle of bingeing and then restricting with food – it starting taking over my life.


I thought that being thin would make me more lovable.  Looking back, it had the opposite effect: it didn’t make me feel any more loved by others, and I certainly didn’t love myself. I focused my uncertainty and self-hate on my body, and in turn, my body became my biggest burden. I used food to reward and punish myself. I constantly compared myself to others. I obsessed over food and my body suffered as a result.


On the outside, I ‘had it all’, but I just couldn’t see it. I was distracted by the endless and futile pursuit to be perfect.


Fast forward a few years, and I’m a completely different person inside and out. I have taken control of my life and of my thoughts. I now take a gentler approach to nutrition, health and wellbeing. It’s as simple as this: I listen to my body and give it exactly what it needs. I eat a wholefood diet that consists of balance in every sense and I am so gentle and kind with myself. I don’t do extremes. Deprivation and restriction are not a part of my vocab – and I’ve never felt better.


This approach is the result of studying nutrition for five years: I completed a Bachelor of Health, and then two years of Nutritional Medicine. I’d always wanted to be a nutritionist, and I remember sitting in my nutrition lecture absolutely blown away by what I was learning. I am still blown away. I began experimenting and shifting my mindset, and slowly, I started healing my relationship with my body.
