This is a story that reminds us why we are doing what we do! A must-read for a nice dose of inspiration!
“Never say never” is one of my guidelines quotes. Because I was, three years ago, a total hectic person in my relationship with food. I was a big fan of McDonald’s, meat, everything fried and of course, chocolate. And I always tried to skip physical education in school – although luckily I was fit enough, I had a normal body weight – but not so much energy and my skin had pimples. And, from too much processed food, I suffered from colitis.
Today? I love veggies, fruits, especially sport. My skin glows. My energy is at the top. And no colitis.
Everything started three years ago when I watched Food Matters documentary. At that time, I just graduated Psychology – my first degree and passion. After watching Food Matters my eyes opened, widely. I started to search information, to read. I was feeling like my whole life was a lie in matters of food. Discovering so much and understanding that food does matter, that my life depends on it, I began to share the information with my family and friends.
Few understood my new lifestyle: vegan, mostly raw food and everyday practicing sport. That’s when I decided to do a second university in Nutrition. Because I knew that for the vast majority of people, the diploma has power. They, believe me, more now when I say something about nutrition. But mainly, I choose this university to help people, to spread the word. So I started blogging. I have a blog based on wellbeing and a lot of recipes, mostly raw vegan that I tried out.
Step by step I discovered new things, new passions. Before I couldn’t think about eating something green – I was feeling nauseous about it. Or do any kind of sport.
But today? I am a bodybuilder, mostly raw vegan, a happy nutritionist and psychologist. I also love to write – that’s why I am here now, writing for you.
I hope that my story motivates people. Because I was there, I had that common life that most of the people have. But I understood that I am the only one responsible for my life and I work for it, I take care of my body every day.
I am really grateful that “Food Matters” has shown me the way.
Thank you, Food Matters!
