My Experience with Orthorexia with Dr. Lara Zibarras

My Experience with Orthorexia with Dr. Lara Zibarras

I was 16 years old when I first tried to lose weight. That was the beginning of 8 years of struggling with food and emotional eating.

I tried everything: Atkins, low fat, juice diets, extreme restriction. Eventually, my disordered eating, starvation, bingeing, and purging led to a full-blown eating disorder. I was so stuck in the “good” food, “bad” food mindset.  My days are consumed with counting calories or grams of fat, and punishing workouts. I was exhausted and had had enough.

Finally…I learnt the science and psychology behind the negative  spiral of food struggles, binges and emotional eating; about toxic diet culture; and I started to shift to a health mindset
