Orthorexia, or the obsession with eating healthy foods, is affecting more and more people today in our diet-crazed world. I wanted to touch on what it is and why it’s so important to understand because, unfortunately, so many women…I’d venture to say more than not…deal with orthorexia to some extent or another. I was one of those women. And I was in denial for years before I finally realized I had a problem with how I viewed food and sought help.
This year, one of the things I wanted to do this year was share more of my daily eats. And I thought it’d be kinda fun to share my birthday eats with you! So, here it is…
Today we’re doing something a little different.

There can be a lot of discouragement in transitioning from a place of disordered eating (i.e. dieting & eating disorder alike) to a place of eating intuitively. Discouragement from friends and family telling you you’re crazy, to feeling out of control around food during the beginning stages of letting go of dieting mentality. But another major discouragement for a lot of women is the abdominal discomfort that comes from allowing yourself to eat freely again. Today we’re chatting how to deal with the digestive discomfort that can be associated with re-awakening your intuitive eating self and how to push through to feeling your best!
