How to Naturally balance hormones

Nutrient Dense Diets for Healthy Hormones

🚬On July 5 2015, I smoked my last cigarette. I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for 19 years.

🌱All of the weird shit I eat? lentils...bok choy...curry...beets...chia...I didn't know what any of it was or what it tasted like for most of my adult life.

🍫I used binge eat chocolate every afternoon at work. Like 1/2 bag of Hershey's kisses kind of binge, on the regular.

🏃🏻‍♀️It took me years of practicing 3 mile running intervals in my neighborhood, and several 5Ks before ever completing my first 3 miles without stopping to walk.

🤰🏻 We had 4 pregnancies. 2 resulted beautiful babies, and all continue to teach us such valuable lessons.

📲 This week, I had the opportunity to share more about my journey to healing my relationship with food, holistically balancing my hormones, our pregnancies, and more on my dear friend and colleagues podcast, Well Women Radio.

Healing Your Relationship Food

I remember so clearly laying in bed at night feeling low and come up with grand plans about how I was going to "get skinny." 😆

Diet pills....Low carb....Grapefruit....Cabbage soup....I counted points, calories, portions....Over exercised....Drank my calories....Saved up and then binged… 😣

It was the consistent struggle between “getting back on track” or just saying eff it and drinking wine and binge eating SnackWells cookies for dinner, even though I just had restocked my fridge with loads of fresh produce.  🥦

I was always looking for the next big thing that was going to give me the body I really wanted, but was really stuck on the start-again-stop-again train.  And I wondered why I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning, struggled with irritable bowels and why I couldn’t “just get skinny”😆

Then, in my early 30s, about a year and a half after my son was born, I was the thinnest I have ever been -- and also the real beginning of what I now recognize was a completely warped body image. I loved my body -- but I didn’t fully enjoy my life--  I was too busy obsessing about food, did 3 day starvation cleanses regularly to "reboot" or "get back on track" and was super judgmental every time I ate "too many" carbs, "too much" fat, or enjoyed an ice cream cone with my family. 🤣





 

These years of chronically dieting ultimately triggered a hormone imbalance, that caused an ugly string of symptoms to rear their heads..

🤷🏻‍♀️Missing and irregular cycles

🚽Constipation

😭Crazy moods

👄Chronic mouth sores

🤚🏼 Dryness and loss of skin pigmentation

💁🏻‍♀️ Brittle hair & nails

🤯 Constant state of brain fog.

I began seeing doctor, after doctor, after doctor, and chased my own tail with no answers until I couldn’t take it anymore. Something needed to change...

Fast forward 3 years and I have a healthy relationship with food, a healthy relationship with my body, and I've RECLAIMED MY LIFE!

Free 30 Minute Workshop: Find Food Freedom!

As I savored every bite of breakfast this morning, I couldn’t help but think about how grateful I am to have figured all of this diet crap out. 🙌🏻

For the longest time, I didn’t eat breakfast. I figured, well, one less meal means that many fewer calories. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Then that period of time where I banned carbs. I don’t even want to talk about it. I think I had PTSD for a long time afterward. 🤬

Then there was that period of time I had a meal replacement shake daily for breakfast. Great on occasion, but MAN was I hangry and already eating a second breakfast 2 hours later. 👿

All of this confusion and trauma, coupled with my journey to naturally balancing my hormones + irritable bowel, inspired studies in what the 5% of people who are succeeding are doing right. 💁🏻‍♀️

{Yup you read that right. 95% of our attempts to get the body and health that we want are failing, which is why we’re constantly searching for a new solution}

Anyway, I’m dying to get what I’ve learned out to the masses. 🤩

So, I've outlined the exact steps that I’ve applied in my own life to obtain food freedom, heal my body from hormone imbalance and irritable bowels...and my clients apply to theirs in this 30 minute workshop! 

So excited to bring this to you! We're starting soon, see you there!!
