In a culture that places so much emphasis on physical appearance, and weight in particular, it’s no surprise that many people have a love-hate relationship with the size of their bodies. I confess, I was one of them!
Yes, I am a certified clinical nutritionist. And Yes, I was fat.
I have been overweight since my childhood. The genes played their role. And I had the same struggles, most children undergo for being a "misfit". There was bullying, body shaming, disappointment, lack of confidence and all the drama that comes with it.
My parents tried everything, I did my best. But there I was. In deep abyss, losing hope and feeling pointless.
It was only in my late teens that I met a naturopath and dietitian who slowly and holistically started educating me and my family on food.
"Health comes at Every Size" became my mantra and the focus was on "healthy weight" and not "losing weight"
I decided to learn nutrition and developed a relationship with food which was not only need based or emotional but also scientific!
I see the "weight loss industry" booming: restrictive eating, skipped meals, disordered eating, binging as a natural response to starvation common in restricting calories, cutting out entire food groups, usually grains—all measures to lose weight. This is not healthful eating, and this needs to stop.
Today, I see several clients @healingharmonyclinic and I often share my story.
Your weight loss journey can be tough, but I have walked this path. I have failed, I have fallen, I have been in dump. I have had the same struggles but in the end I have come out successful. I have learnt from my mistakes, I have improvised and I am determined to help you in this journey.
