I hit my rock bottom at the age of 18. Going through mental health issues involving depression, severe anxiety and OCD, a strung out addiction, two stays in rehab, almost 6 months away from my family and finally the long road to recovery. After rising above addiction I headed down the "fitness industry" path after gaining over 40lbs from my poor lifestyle choices. Restriction, gimmick diets, over exercising, distorted body image, severe low self esteem, orthorexia, bulimia and other eating disorder patterns. It seemed I was never mentally healing - just carrying my heavy mental issues through each stage of my life... going straight from drug abuse to an eating disorder - never catching a break! I needed change... and soon.
Finally taking the leap to a plant based diet has brought me the pure joy and abundance I have been craving all of these years. My entire mental state has flipped - I am now in complete control of my emotions. I am eating more nutritious, gorgeous food than I ever have before with zero restriction. My digestive issues have vanished - no more bloating, gas, indigestion or heartburn. The shape my body has taken on through eating plant based is astonishing. I am lean & toned & my stomach is flat. I am at my optimal body weight and shape. My skin is so clear and beautiful and my mind is just as clear & beautiful! Every aspect of my life has sky rocketed.
I am a thriving young woman who loves hiking, camping and anything to do with nature. My family is my everything and their support and happiness breathes life into me. I am in the best shape, mentally and physically, of my entire life. I am lean, strong and brimming over with self love.. All thanks to the discovery of a plant based, high carb lifestyle.
I want to give this feeling to anyone who wants to take this step and gain control. No matter what walk of life you have been on - this lifestyle WILL amplify your happiness and health! So, let's get your mind AND body right through a plant based diet!
