I overcame crippling anxiety, recovered from binge eating, and gained more confidence.

I began working with a Whole30 Certified Coach, almost a year ago. I was tired of the same old yo-yo diet routine and binge eating that had run my life for the past 7 years. I was struggling with managing my autoimmune disease (Hashimoto’s), I was uncomfortable in my body, and overall unhappy with my life. I had done a couple rounds of Whole30 and a round of the autoimmune paleo protocol on my own, but didn’t see the changes that I knew I could.

My coach personalized a Whole30 and Nutritional Therapy plan that would accommodate my autoimmune disease. It took months of slowly reintroducing foods with her guidance, but I was able to find my food freedom, something I struggled to find on my own. Working with her has transformed my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. I quit my unfulfilling corporate job and started diving into personal development and spiritual work. After successfully completing Whole30 and reintroductions, I have more energy, cleared my cystic acne, lost body fat, my hair started growing back, I overcame crippling anxiety, recovered from binge eating, and gained more confidence — just to name a few!
