I think the passions we have in life stem from many different stepping stones, influences and people. Mine has to be from growing up always enjoying sport, fitness and FOOD. Back then though, I know now I wasn't eating right. I'm not going to knock myself for doing a positive thing though.
Let's cut my long story short, I'd say I have had my fair share of experience of forever changing lifestyles, eating correctly and big psychological journeys.
What is my 'why'.....? I have suffered from mental illness for years, sometimes not knowing, sometimes I have wanted to give up. A lot of the time I have used fitness and thinking correctly, more importantly I've used food as my medicine.
As mad as it sounds to most, I'm so grateful for having suffered from depression and anxiety. The buzz, the overwhelming feeling, I get from just someone approaching me because I have been honest that I too have suffered. If I hadn't had a mental illness, I wouldn't get to feel what I feel when someone thanks me for just listening. If I could tell even just ten people who are suffering from depression one tiny bit of advice... Its TALK.
Talking is the first step, the next step is to fuel your body with the correct fuel.
This is why now I'm exploring this PASSION of helping people, not just people with depression, but people who want to change.
Maybe it's more energy, maybe they are not sleeping well, maybe they need to reduce the number on the scales. All of these issues and hundreds more can be tackled by eating the correct fuel (food). Your body will react to whatever fuel you fill up on. Make sure it's the correct one.
Listen, I would love to hear from you, drop me an email any time.
