I took an interest in fitness when I was 17 while playing sports and strength training in my high school gym. I really enjoyed the boost that it gave my confidence, plus the athletic physique! That time in my life planted a seed that remained until I came to a point as an adult that I felt compelled to take action.
I was over 200lbs, I was stress eating, exhausted and not sleeping well. Simply put my body was burnt out. I started to learn more about eating for wellness, and how detrimental sugar was to my well-being. That sparked my turning point, and I chose to eat for nourishment and energy. Stress eating and massive sugar cravings were done. I lost the excess weight and learned how to listen to my body.
