Until one day, I came face to face with an assessment for food addiction. WHOA.
I checked off all of the boxes which showed that I was using food to medicate. To cope.
I was using food like a drug. I couldn’t moderate my use of it. And I was hooked.
I was raised to use food to celebrate, to grieve, to show love. To feel loved. I went to food when I was stressed, lonely, or bored. And this same food was causing serious distress - bloating, headaches, low self-esteem, fatigue, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and insulin resistance (early diabetes).
And then I had a breakthrough. I wasn’t broken. It wasn’t all my fault. The food was designed to be addictive. It was designed to make me want to buy more.
Instead of beating myself up and going ‘round and ‘round in circles, I realized that I could treat this like an addiction problem. Brilliant people have been managing addiction for decades.
Surely I could follow that model and still LOVE what I eat.
All along I had been missing the most obvious answer: Food was causing my misery, and food was powerful enough to get me out of it.
At first I thought it was luck, but 9 years later I’m producing the same result year after year, and it keeps getting easier!
It took me a few more years to understand the root of the problem, but once I did, it became clear to me why so many people struggle.
People saw my results, they saw how easy I made it seem, and that’s when I decided to create this program. To help you and others like you break free once and for all!
