What "diet" do you follow?
Ugh, I have tried every one. Here is my secret - there is no one size fits all. I've had different needs based on what my activity level, stress level, and time margin are at any given time. The eating habits that stay consistent for me (this changes slightly when I am pregnant or breastfeeding) is first drinking lots of water instead of drinking my calories, next, tapering carbohydrates throughout the day, then and eating real, whole, unprocessed foods as much as possible. Lastly, I eat very little sugar including limiting my fruit to one or less serving a day. I eat healthy proteins, carbs, and fats each day with a focus on fiber rich foods and supplements!
what type of execise do you do?
I have been a lifetime athlete. It all started with a love for basketball and volleyball. After highschool I started weight lifting and running several half marathons, one full marathon. (Which I can almost guarantee will be my last! Long distance running is not for me.) I've discovered that my body responds best with weight training and short bursts of intense cardio including HIIT Training and kickboxing.

how did you beat your eating disorder?
I struggled with disordered eating for 10 years. Mine began after I felt the need to "prove" myself and not feeling supported in my passion as a young girl. I would binge/not eat, over exercise and spit out any unhealthy foods. It was messed up to say the least and I suffered lots of guilt and shame. I was set free by prayer ministry and practical wisdom of learning how to properly nourish my body and proper exercise recovery. Today I am totally free from the addicting behaiviors and always aim to prioritze my time in the Word and in His presence to keep aligned with the things in life that really matter!
